NIBA 30th Year!!
In 1981 I opened an IB with my father and so began my life in the futures industry. Since that time so many things have changed in our space but the constant for me has always been being involved with the IB business and the NIBA since the beginning. My old FCM was the first to join as a representative from an IB who cleared with us was the first President. When I came to Stone X Financial Inc. 17 years ago, I discussed with the powers that be that we needed to join and grow our IB business. They wholeheartedly agreed and now we are one of the top 5 clearers of IB business.
The number one thing that NIBA has accomplished is, they’ve brought a unified voice to the NFA and CFTC that the IB Community never would have received without this organization. Number 2 is, I met my wife of 26 years at the 3rd conference.
