Speaker: Felix Frey

 (28th August /8:00 pm – 9:00 pm)

Options confuse most investors. Some investors don’t even realize they are confused. The question is why? In this presentation, Felix Frey dives into how the industry has failed you and why the available education is the problem. He challenges you with 2 simple questions and shows you proof that neither the industry nor the experts know the answer. In fact, the answers are held by a tight knit group that Felix calls the Top 1%. In this presentation, he’ll walk you through those two questions that everyone is afraid to ask and the answers that no one in the world teaches.

Felix is the founder and creator of OptionsGeek.com, a disruptive Options Educational platform that teaches the average investor how to profit with options just like the Top 1%. He graduated the Wharton School in 1995 and spent 20 years on Wall Street advising, trading against, and trading with the most sophisticated investors in the world. Felix worked at the top Investment Banks, including Swiss Bank O’Connor and Bank of America, before he went to work for the prestigious Hedge Fund Scoggin Capital Management.
