OilX is proud to have been selected by FIA as one of nine startups to exhibit in the 6th Innovators Pavilion and pitch during the 36th Annual Futures & Options Expo.

To promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the derivatives industry, FIA has created a fintech showcase - the Innovators Pavilion - at Expo-V, its virtual Futures and Options Expo, to highlight the latest advances in financial technology, cutting-edge startups and new applications that are changing the face of the industry. During this event, which will take place between November 10-12, 2020, OilX will showcase its award winning oil data analytics platform.

The FIA Innovators Pavilion gives fintech startups the chance to connect with derivatives industry professionals across the world. More than 90 fintech companies have participated in this annual showcase, demonstrating exciting new applications for emerging technologies and introducing these companies to key players in the derivatives community. These firms were selected through a competitive application process and chosen by a panel of industry experts from venture capital companies and FIA member firms.

"I'm excited to see that the spirit of innovation continues to thrive during these difficult times," said FIA President and CEO Walt Lukken. "We are looking forward to introducing these young companies to decision-makers in our industry and encouraging the adoption of their innovative solutions in the global derivatives markets."
