filtering algorithms, sources of implied volatilities, hedging and risk
management algorithms, and other components of the company's Quant
framework and processes. (2) Expanding the range of derivative products
offered by the company to include exotic options, structured products,
and other derivatives. (3) Maintaining and enhancing the profitability
