You don’t need to be told that volatility is emerging as a separate asset class.
You also don’t need to be reminded that implied volatility is quite low and has been for some time now.
What you do need to know is that these historical lows won’t remain low forever!
This is why Finance IQ’s VOLATILITY TRADING ’05 has brought together leading industry experts to present on the issues of greatest concern to you right now.
Attend this conference and hear how you can:
Profit from future swings in volatility
Take advantage of cross market volatility plays
Exploit relative mispricings of volatility
Implement portable alpha strategies
What’s new this year?
This year the focus of our event is on how traders profit from volatility. Overviews of the differing strategies will be presented. There will also be various institutional investors speaking about their reasons for incorporating volatility trading into their investment portfolio.
At last year’s event speakers from companies such as Goldman Sachs, Maple Leaf Capital, BGB Weston, Société Générale Asset Management, Chicago Board of Options Exchange and London Business School presented their most recent findings.
This year already confirmed are the likes of Wilmott, Finance Development Centre, Volatility Research & Trading Pte Ltd, P&K Securities Greece, Proteom Capital Management Ltd and the University of Technology, Sydney all of whom are keen to profile this year’s research and share knowledge on issues such as moving from volatility theory to practice, creating liquidity in the marketplace through indices and whether or not you can forecast volatility.
As you can tell by our current speaker line-up, volatility as an asset class is becoming utilised throughout the world. We have people coming from locations such as Greece and Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.
