Remembering 9/11: The Impact on the Futures Industry
by Futures Industry Association 09 Sep 21:34
To commemorate the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the FIA
has posted on its website two articles from the September issue of Futures Industry on the impact of those attacks on the futures industry. The first article, which is based on reporting that originally appeared in Futures Industry in the fall of 2001, describes the extraordinary efforts by firms and exchanges to cope with the destruction of the World Trade Center towers and reopen the New York futures markets the following week. The second article contains profiles of more than 75 people with connections to the futures industry who died that day, drawn from obituaries and memorials that were published in the New York Times, the New York Daily News, Newsday, the Chicago Tribune and several other publications. On the tenth anniversary of the attacks, we once again express our condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the thousands of victims of the 9/11 tragedy.
