The Derivatives Committee provides a forum for investment professionals to learn more about the use and intricacies of derivatives. It offers content to both specialists in the derivatives markets and those professionals who are not currently involved but who wish to learn more. The Derivatives Committee seeks to educate and keep its membership informed on all aspects of derivatives and derivatives markets. As the use and importance of derivatives is increasing, the Committee is committed to educating and making derivatives markets more accessible to those with little or no direct experience.
Recent events include panel discussion on new volatility products with speakers from CBOE, S&P and Barclay’s, liability driven investment for pension funds, subprime securitization (New York Federal Reserve Economist Adam Ashcraft). Additional presenters have previous experience at Fitch Solutions, PIMCO, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Securities and many, many others.
Information about membership and programming should be directed to committee chair Dr. Andrew Spieler at firstname.lastname@example.org or vice chair Dr. Ehsan Nikbakht at email@example.com. Once again, the Derivatives Committee is open to anyone with an interest in derivative markets or securities. The Committee welcomes all members whether they have extensive derivative experience or no previous exposure.
