Walt Lukken’s Tribute to the life of Bob Cox

Walt Lukken’s Tribute to the life of Bob Cox

12 December 2018 8:00pm EST

On behalf of FIA’s board of directors and members, I wanted to take a moment to remember a dear friend that we unexpectedly lost last week—Bob Cox.  Bob was a former member of the FIA board and a mentor to many of us. Bob’s career spanned thirty years, starting with Goldman Sachs in Singapore, running HSBC’s clearing business and most recently, as vice president of the financial markets group at the Chicago Federal Reserve.  If I had to describe Bob in a word, it would be “Teacher.”  It brought great joy to Bob to share his knowledge and experience with others, helping to educate a generation of regulators and market participants about the cleared derivatives industry. His most recent role at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago gave him the perfect platform to do what he loved best—educate the public about how to make our markets safer.  Given Bob’s generous spirit, I can only imagine that there are many of you around the globe that feel the same deep appreciation for Bob’s mentoring and friendship as I do.  I am comforted by the fact that Bob was able to see his beloved Northwestern University in the Big Ten championship game before his passing.  Today we remember Bob for his friendship and devotion to the people of this wonderful industry.  We will miss you dearly.
