It’s not often that you run into a financial wizard like Raj Fernando. Starting his career in 1991, he has spent the last 25 years working his way up to the top of his field and creating an empire out of Chopper Trading, the company he founded in 2002, and working for the good of the public as a philanthropist. Currently working as the chief executive officer of Scoutahead, Fernando continues to prove himself to be a champion of the financial arts. There simply aren’t many stories out there are vibrant and inspiring as his story has proven to be.
Starting out as a volunteer at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Raj Fernando worked his way up the ladder at that company and at the Chicago Board of Trade. Using the experience and skill he gained there, he founded Chopper Trading in 2002. Under his leadership the company staff grew to include 250 employees and traded on the likes of Nasdaq, Eurex, and Cantor Fitzgerald-espeed. While working at Chopper Trading, Fernando was also busy working for the US Commodity Trading Futures Commission promoting ethical business practices within the American commodities market. Last year Raj Fernando sold Chopper Trading to DRW Trading Group.
This year Fernando founded a new internet startup he deemed Scoutahead. Focusing on improving professional growth and productivity through better, secure communication, the company looks to be yet another smashing success for Fernando. With his track record of determination and financial talent Scoutahead is certain to surge ahead of its competition.
