Overheard at a Vol Conference, breaking down EQD Global 2020
One of the leading volatility trading and derivatives investing events of the year wrapped up last month and we have lots of thoughts. From new vol dispersion products to portfolio design, tail-risk management and structural vol; if it’s been a hot topic in 2020 – Global EQD covered it. We’re joined by Jim Carroll, Senior Vice President at Toroso Advisors and John Cummings, Director of Research at RCM Alternatives. There were sessions we agreed with, opinions from some of our favorite finfluencers, and even some sessions that straight up made us scratch our head. So what was talked about by the likes of Benn Eifert, Chris Cole, Vineer Bhansali, PIMCO, the CBOE, and more? Take a listen and find out.
