This has all been thanks to a year full of events, articles and news items that continue to put us at the forefront of derivatives know-how. Take a look back with us at the most popular content of 2015, along with some of our most memorable moments, especially if you're a recent addition to The OTC Space family (items that are 'premium' and therefore reserved for registered readers, are displayed in holiday red):
