New Jersey’s Rutgers University School of Business–Camden and the Options Industry Council (OIC) on Monday announced new online course offerings in options for financial advisors. The hour-long courses are free of charge, can be taken to fit advisors’ schedules, and are accredited for continuing education.
The courses are designed to help financial advisors better protect clients’ investments, spark new ideas for high-net clients, and build their practice through the implementation of options strategies, according to a joint news release from Rutgers and the OIC.
Sean Heron, CFA, an adjunct finance faculty member at the Rutgers School of Business-Camden, is presenting the material in each of the three classes. The new curriculum includes options basics, covered calls, and options pricing.
Rutgers and the OIC joined forces for the first time last year, when they partnered to offer a two-day certificate program on portfolio management using equity options. For more detailed course information and to register, go to options.rutgers.edu.
