About The OTC Space

Printer-friendly version
  • The OTC Derivatives Market isn't always well understood - a swamp of acronyms and jargon which attracts an often quoted summary by Warren Buffett:

    2002 Shareholders letter: "In our view, however, derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction, carrying dangers that, while now latent, are potentially lethal." (see page 14 of this PDF: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/2002pdf.pdf)

    Far be it from me to try and persuade Mr Buffett otherwise, but the purpose of this site is to:

    • Provide the latest News, such as announcements, decisions, regulations, reactions and day by day commentary on the market
    • Provide analysis and articles, original writing seeking to demystify, explain and provide understanding of the market
    • Provide Education on how the market works, the mechanics, infrastructure, products, pricing and processes
