    Trading options as a market maker In this interactive lecture we will take look at the role of market makers and the value of options in the financial landscape. Market makers provide liquidity to financial markets by simultaneously showing prices at which they are willing to buy and sell options, i.e. a two-sided market. While trading options, market makers must manage the risk of these trades as well as their overall portfolio. Trading and risk management go hand in hand in this way. After a broad introduction into financial markets and various instruments, we will discuss the special nature of options and the ways in which their price can be calculated. In this valuation of options, the so-called “implied volatility” plays a crucial role. For market makers this implied volatility and its behavior is the most interesting and challenging factor. We will discuss why! Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available. We kindly ask you to be subscribed Thursday before the lecture. If there are more than 30 people interested, there will be a draw. You will be informed about your participation, the lecture and all corona measures Friday before the lecture takes place.

    IOTA, the better version of Blockchain and the Ledger of Everything! In 2009, Bitcoin released its blockchain infrastructure and promised to become a global decentralized system that could be used by anyone without the need for intermediaries. Now, more than 10 years later it has become apparent (high fee’s, slow transaction times and poor scalability) that blockchains mathematical model isn’t suited to become a worldwide payment system. However, the next generation of Distributed Ledger Technology is now here and it’s called IOTA! This protocol is designed from the ground up to power the Machine economy through feeless micro-transactions and data integrity utilizing a mathematical principle, called Directed-Acyclic-Graph (DAG). It is this concept that allows IOTA to outperform blockchain in every way and established a network dubbed the ‘‘Tangle’’ It is expected that this technology will become the very backbone for the Internet of Things and power the internet of tomorrow! Curious how this works? Come and listen to the presentation! Note that for this lunch lecture that are only 30 spots available. We kindly ask you to be subscribed Thursday before the lecture. If there are more than 30 people interested, there will be a draw. You will be informed about your participation, the lecture and all corona measures Friday before the lecture takes place.
