After a lengthy and successful tenure on the risk-taking side in equity volatility, Henry Schwartz decided the US listed options community would benefit from technology that made reading the tape easier. In 2005, he launched Trade Alert, a fintech innovation that does just that. Nearly 15 years later, Trade Alert is a tool employed by buy-side and sell-side market participants who value the functionality in piecing together the continuous and often complex flow within the US options market. My conversation with Henry is a meaningful retrospective on the changes in the derivatives markets that have resulted from technology. We look back to an era gone by – pre-ETFs, pre-electronic trading and before options were dually listed. Henry shares his perspective on the evolution and growth of the marketplace and the key events that led to the proliferation of exchanges, different fee structures, and new types of investors.
