John Lothian

Executive Chairman and CEO

Margaret Wiermanski is a longtime derivatives industry back office executive turned author. Silent Partners is a murder and financial crime mystery, and the first of three books she intends to write. The book is set in Chicago’s derivatives markets and involves former floor traders and brokers and their lives after trading floors closed. While this is fiction, some of the characters will seem real to those who work in the Chicago markets. It is a fun thriller and its sales support the Greenwood Project, a Chicago-based charity to introduce minority students to the financial industry.
