The final entry in JLN’s MarketsWiki Education 2020 World of Opportunity virtual event was John Lothian’s interview with Eileen Flaherty, who has had a long career as a financial services attorney and more recently published a novel called The Perilous Step. Flaherty often operated at the top of the industry. Her introduction to futures came as a staff attorney for the National Futures Association before she landed at the CME, working with Globex in its infancy. She also worked for the CFTC as a division director for a couple of years as the agency implemented the Dodd-Frank Act. Her novel, which is available on Amazon and elsewhere, draws on her experience rising from humble beginnings to a top job on merit in Washington, D.C. and her senior roles in the derivatives and securities industry.
