When you think of trading the steepening or flattening of the yield curve, you have Richard Sandor to thank. He was at the forefront of designing GNMA futures in the early ’70s. He is considered the father of financial futures.
I’ve known Richard for several years now and I often see him speak at conferences such as the Milken Institute’s Global Conference, among others.
His new book Good Derivatives is a memoir that I think you’ll find very interesting. It’s filled with his great anecdotal stories as well as a depth of history that only someone with 40 years of experience like he has.
