Speaker: Hans Albrecht, CIM (via Webinar)

Topic: Options

Hans Albrecht is Vice President, Associate Portfolio Manager and Options Strategist with Horizons Investment Management Inc. (“HIMI”). He co-manages a number of products in HIMI’s growing global line-up of covered call ETFs and oversees day-to-day options activities. Prior to joining HIMI, Mr. Albrecht spent most of the past 18 years making markets in options and trading volatility for National Bank Financial and its parent company, National Bank. Through various and challenging market environments, he has consistently generated absolute returns using a blend of income and gamma-rich volatility arbitrage strategies. Mr. Albrecht has also led the development of a quantitative options trading platform, as well as successfully built out and managed an equity/options trading desk. A proficient and meticulous risk manager, Mr. Albrecht believes that “alpha is in the details.” The key to successful volatility trading, in his view, is a superior understanding of the ever changing conditions of volatility, the trade-off between risk and return, and the general options landscape. Mr. Albrecht graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Commerce and holds the Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designation.
