In the dynamic world of financial derivatives, Mat Cashman of the Options Industry Council (OIC) is on a mission to demystify the complex realm of options trading. As part of the OIC’s investor education team, Cashman is at the forefront of a digital revolution in financial literacy, adapting to the changing habits of a new generation of traders.
