Leo Melamed, is the father of financial futures. He is a current board member of CME Group and chairman of its Strategic Steering Committee. Melamed, an attorney by profession, became chairman of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in 1969. In 1972, under his leadership, the CME created the International Monetary Market (IMM), the world's first financial futures exchange, and launched currency futures. In the years that followed, Melamed led the CME and IMM in the creation of a number of financial instruments, including futures on US Treasury bills in 1976, Eurodollars in 1981, and stock index futures in 1982. In 1987, Melamed spearheaded the creation and introduction of Globex, the world's first electronic trading system, and became its founding chairman. Twenty years after their inception, Nobel Laureate in Economics, Merton Miller, named financial futures as "the most significant innovation of the past two decades." At the close of 1999, the former editor of the Chicago Tribune, named Melamed, "among the ten most important Chicagoans in business of the 20th Century." In 1991 he founded his own consulting firm, Melamed & Associates, of which he is chairman and chief executive officer. He formerly was a member of the global markets advisory committee of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and has served as a special advisor on futures markets to governments worldwide. Melamed serves on the prestigious Chinese International Advisory Council of Chinese Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC). He is founder and a permanent advisor to the National Futures Association, and a consultant to CIF.CO International Group in China.
