Futures Hall of Fame

In recognition of the outstanding contributions of members of the futures and options community, FIA established the FIA Futures Hall of Fame in 2005. 

The Futures Hall of Fame celebrates and recognizes the significant contributions individuals have made to the listed and cleared derivatives community. It is important that the people who lead this industry today understand the contributions made by those who came before them. We are benefiting from the ground they broke, and the programs and policies they put in place. These inductees have earned the respect and gratitude of the market participants for laying the foundation for the extraordinary success of our industry. Inductees are chosen by a panel of industry veterans and Hall of Fame members who consider nominees' long-time experience and contributions to the industry over the course of their concluding careers.

Please join FIA in celebrating the legacy that the men and women who share this honor leave behind.
