Eileen Flaherty: MarketsWiki Education World of Opportunity 2020

John Lothian

John Lothian

Executive Chairman and CEO

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.
