Options for beginners

Options enable investors to buy shares at a discount

You can use options to protect your shares against a drop in value. Name one other type of insurance where that is possible.
Options enable investors to buy shares at a discount!
So why do only a few private investors use these instruments, but professional investors do with great success?
The answer is simple. Private investors need to take the time to grasp how they work.

Options are more complex financial products than Stocks. Therefore it is even more important to learn the basics before investing in them.

Our teachers at Academy for Investors are from the Netherlands. The Netherlands is the country in Europe where options are used most by private investors. Options go back 400 years!

Kaspar Huijsman 

Kaspar worked for BinckBank for over 22 years. He launched the Spanish Branch of the bank in 2006, initially to support Dutch ex-pat investors in Spain – a service that subsequently expanded to include other ex-pat residents and non-residents throughout the country. Kaspar is a seasoned expert in investing. He is passionate about investing and is often invited to lecture for groups, universities and rotary clubs about financial education. 

Martin Totté 

Martin is an experienced account manager who was part of the Spanish BinckBank team for over 12  years (BinckBank is now Hugo Investing). “For me, the most important thing is that clients keep their portfolios together when markets are bearish. Resisting reflex impulses is more often than not rewarded in the mid to longer term. My main goal is teaching our clients which instruments to use at what moment.”

Taco te Gussinklo 

Taco was an active trader before he joined the team as an account manager. “It’s nice to pass that knowledge on and show people how to invest, whether they are experienced investors or people who have simply decided to take more control of their money. Our door is always open to them.”
