With index options, investors should understand that these assets differ from equity and ETF options, and the differences can be significant. For the last webinar of the third quarter, OIC will focus on index options and their notable characteristics. On Sept. 14, instructor Roma Colwell, a former options trader, will review:
- Index options compared with equity and ETF options
- Cash vs. physical settlement, along with settlement timing
- European vs. American-style exercise
- Indexes as a portfolio-protection tool
