Jürg Spillmann was a technology pioneer in the futures industry and during his three decades in the industry he played a key role in the migration from open outcry to electronic trading. His work in the industry began in 1987 with the Swiss Options and Financial Futures Exchange, where he helped launch the exchange’s first electronic trading system. That system became the platform for DTB, the first successful electronic exchange in the futures industry and the predecessor of Eurex. Ultimately SOFFEX was merged into Eurex and from 1997 he held senior positions at Eurex and helped advance the exchange’s technology until his retirement in 2013.
