Feis Trading Corp. was founded by Lawrence Feis in 1996. Mr. Feis attended the Wharton school where he earned both his undergraduate and MBA degrees. After graduating, he was employed at Citibank where he became a vice president of money market arbitrage. In 1985, Mr. Feis moved to Chicago and became a member of both the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade. During the next 11 years, he engaged in floor trading arbitrage of the interest rate futures and options markets. In addition to his personal trading, Mr. Feis trained and financed many new floor traders who went on to have successful trading careers.

Mr. Feis left the floor and established Feis Trading Corp. with the intention of creating an elite trading firm that would be both highly adaptive and innovative. In order to accomplish this, he established a collaborative environment designed to develop traders using extensive support and training. From the onset, Feis Trading has been an organization in which traders work together to discover and implement new strategies and models, combining efforts to approach large-scale arbitrage opportunities in both futures and equities markets. For the past 12 years, equities and futures trading has been conducted electronically from our office in downtown Chicago.
