Careers for Women in Proprietary Trading

In an industry historically dominated by men, Chicago Trading Company is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. Illustrating that commitment, we held the Women in Proprietary Trading event in our Chicago offices on August 15th. We invited female college students interested in this sector of the finance industry.

The students heard from a handful of successful CTC team members who described the firm’s work, its unique culture, the company’s professional opportunities and our workplace benefits. One speaker, Lauren Rauch, began as a trader at CTC more than 15 years ago. She is now a Partner and the firm’s Global Head of Risk Management.

In her remarks, Lauren shared her insights about women in trading, “I have friends that work in different industries that I know would make good traders. I find it troubling that more women don’t pursue this industry, because it makes for an interesting, challenging, and rewarding career.”

Steve Crutchfield, CTC’s Head of Market Structure, kicked off the event with a welcome speech. He explained what CTC does and the important role that market making plays in the health of our financial system.

“The Trading industry presents new challenges every day,” Crutchfield said. “And everyone at CTC is eager to learn. We believe our collaborative, team-based culture is unique among trading firms.”

Jennifer Paik Chung, CTC’s Director of Technology Business Management, spoke about careers for women in proprietary trading and technology. She began her journey in Financial Services 25 years ago – “Back then, there were very few women in this business and firms were far less welcoming to women. Today, commitment to diversity and inclusion is at an all-time high,” she said. As for advice, Chung encouraged women at the event to: “find a company that matches your values, take on new – even risky – challenges, and be the best at what you do.”

The event also included a panel discussion featuring CTC employees describing what they liked most about working at CTC and some practical career advice for women interested in a career in Proprietary Trading.

CTC looks forward to hosting additional Women in Finance Events in the coming months.

Autism Speaks Event

CTC's commitment to citizenship means we invest in the places where we live and work. That takes many forms, including collaborations between our team and the non-profits near to our hearts in pursuit of authentic and lasting impact.

One of those, Autism Speaks, is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. It does that through advocacy and support, increasing understanding and acceptance, and advancing research into causes and interventions.

CTC has participated in the annual Autism Speaks Walk for several years and the firm's 2017 team was once again among the top three donors. We believe in Autism Speaks' vision: "our strength as a community is powered by love and built on the commitment of individuals." And we look forward to coming together again in 2018 to enhance the lives of people living with autism.

Russell 2000® Index Futures and
Options to Return to CME Group

CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, today announced that starting July 10, 2017, CME Group will launch both futures and options based on the Russell 2000® Index, as well as basis trade at index close (BTIC) functionality on the futures contracts, pending regulatory approval.

The full list of new contracts available to trade follows:

  • E-mini® Russell 2000® Index Futures
  • Options on E-mini® Russell 2000® Index Futures
  • Weekly Options on E-mini® Russell 2000® Index Futures
  • Options on E-mini® Russell 2000® Index Futures - End-of-Month
  • E-mini® Russell 2000® Growth Index Futures
  • E-mini® Russell 2000® Value Index Futures

"We're pleased to bring the Russell 2000® index back to CME Group where traders will now be able to access major equity indices on a single platform," said Tim McCourt, CME Group's Global Head of Equities. "Offering these new products at CME Group will provide our customers a more cost-effective opportunity for global exposure using futures and options, with margin offsets of up to 70 percent against the S&P 500, Nasdaq and Dow Jones indices."

The Russell 2000® Index is the standard recognized benchmark measuring the performance of the small-cap segment of the U.S. Stock Market. With the growing popularity of passive investing, indexing data has become more valuable for investors. In August 2015, CME Group and London Stock Exchange Group announced a partnership to list derivatives contracts based on Russell indexes.

"We are excited to continue providing robust liquidity in Russell 2000® options as they transition to CME Group's platform," said Frank Bednarz, Global Co-Head of Trading, CTC Trading Group, L.L.C. "These are powerful tools for investors seeking to manage risk in the important small-cap segment."

"Equity Index futures and options are among the top products traded by our futures clients," said Dan Ryba, Vice President of Futures Brokerage at E*TRADE. "We look forward to CME Group offering the Russell 2000® futures and options, which further complements their equity offering."

"As a trader, having the Russell 2000® at CME Group provides me with cost efficiencies and greater flexibility to trade against other index products like the Dow and S&P," said professional trader Morad Askar of FuturesTrader71.com. "I'm glad to see it will be trading on CME Group in July and look forward to trading the contract."

CME Group's new Russell 2000® Index futures and options products are an efficient hedge to cash index options, with the choice of flexible execution through BTIC. Through greater certainty and precision, and enhanced flexibility, BTIC trades can mitigate jump risk and re-establish equity index exposure.

E-mini® Russell 2000® Index futures and options, E-mini® Russell 2000® Growth Index futures and E-mini® Russell 2000® Value Index futures will be listed by and subject to the rules and regulations of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. For more information, please visit www.cmegroup.com/russell2000.

As the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, CME Group (www.cmegroup.com) is where the world comes to manage risk. Through its exchanges, CME Group offers the widest range of global benchmark products across all major asset classes, including futures and options based on interest rates, equity indexes, foreign exchange, energy, agricultural products and metals.
