David Setters is a long-time champion of the futures industry through his work in media and publishing. Shortly after the launch of financial futures in London in 1982, he launched the monthly magazine Futures and Options World. He spearheaded FOW’s growth, which included additional electronic and specialist titles and the organization of industry events, including FOW’s annual derivatives exhibition in 1991, which became the forerunner of today’s IDX. After 22 years running FOW’s commercial business, David joined Contango Markets, a consulting firm. He is also a founder trustee of the Londonbased futures industry charity Futures for Kids.
