The investment industry is an extremely competitive industry, and succeeding within this industry requires you to be both brilliant and hardworking. Over the last hundred years, many investors have tried to make it and failed. It takes a huge amount of talent to become successful within the industry. One of the top talents in the investment industry is Raj Fernando.
Raj Fernando started becoming interested in the financial industry when he was in college. While still in college Raj volunteered to work on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. Volunteering at the exchange inspired Raj to enter the financial industry, and when Raj graduated he immediately started working on the floor of the exchange. Throughout the next decade, Raj quickly worked his way to the top of the financial industry. He held various positions at both the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade. By 2001, Raj was one of the hottest names in the Chicago investment industry and he was ready to go out on his own.
Raj founded Chopper Trading in 2002 in Chicago. Raj’s leadership helped guide the company to great success. The company eventually grew to 250 employees, and Chopper Trading traded on many exchanges throughout the world, including the Nasdaq, LSE, Eurex, and ICE. Chopper was an incredible success, and Raj led the company until 2015 when he received an enormous bid from DRW Trading Group. Raj loved the offer, so he took it and moved onto his next project.
The sale of Chopper Trading made Raj extremely healthy, but he wanted to keep building something. In 2016, Raj launched another company, Scoutahead. Scoutahead is a company designed to help people achieve the professional growth they need. It focuses on secure communication systems. The company is young but it is already starting to grow.
The world needs brilliant businessmen to push the economy forward. For almost twenty years, Raj Fernando has helped change the way people invest.
