In this episode, I got to speak to Mat Cashman, Principal of Investor Education at OCC. Mat takes us through the life cycle of an options trade by explaining the inner workings of the market and some of the players and institutions that make it all possible.

One of those institutions is the OCC (The Options Clearing Corporation) which is the world’s largest equity derivatives clearing organization. For nearly 50 years, OCC has provided financial stability and risk management to the U.S. listed-options marketplace.
