I watched the Notre Dame – Navy football game from Dublin this morning and Dublin never looked better! The new Aviva Stadium, replacing the famous Lansdowne Stadium, was spectacular. I also watched one of the six U. S. high school and small college games from Dublin yesterday via the internet. My team didn’t win (Loyola Academy from Wilmette, IL lost 30-29 to Dallas Jesuit HS) but the experience for all players and attendees is something they’ll never forget.
Why the blog about Dublin?
The CBOE is sponsoring it’s first European version of the very successful Risk Management Conference (RMC) starting Wednesday Sep. 5th through Friday Sep. 7th, just 15 miles (24 kilometers for the non-US) South of Dublin. Powerscourt will be the location for the inaugural RMC Europe. The previous 28 RMC conferences had all-star speakers, and RMC Europe does as well. If you’ve never been to Powerscourt, what a great excuse! Powerscourt is in Enniskerry, County Wicklow.
RMC has proven to be a valuable conference for financial professionals and traders who need to stay current with industry trends and learn how to effectively use the newest products and latest risk management strategies. RMC sessions are led by top industry practitioners and researchers. Attendees can earn up to 11 CPE/CFP credits by attending.
If you can not attend (it’s not too late to register) don’t worry. We will be listing the speakers and topics starting Tuesday and updates from RMC Wednesday through Friday. Gary Compton from CBOE Corporate Communications will be tweeting live and sending information back to Chicago. Jim Bittman from The Options Institute is speaking and on a panel, but will be blogging on developments from RMC Europe. Matt Moran (finally, an Irishman!) will be tweeting and blogging his thoughts from RMC.
Next week’s RMC posts will be at a slightly higher-level than we usually have in our CBOE Blogging Community. The usual contributors will be posting here as they always do so we’ll have a little of everything for you.
So if you can not attend, we’ll give you a re-cap of what you missed. Have a nice Labor Day weekend.
