48 Years of Cboe: How Our People Define Us

A Global Associate Base

At our core, Cboe is defining markets by putting people first. It is our people who bring innovation, a desire to do more and passion to work each day, driving forward our mission to build one of the world’s largest global derivatives and securities trading networks.

Adapting to a Changing Marketplace

The full Cboe team keeps us nimble and ready to adapt as we pave the way in defining the modern trading environment. The global shift to a completely remote work environment accelerated our adaptation of technological solutions and pushed us to develop enhanced educational resources while increasing the speed of execution, cost savings, efficiency, stability and scalability.

Commitment to Diversity Equality and Inclusion

The pandemic, geopolitical tensions and social unrest made for an unimaginably challenging year that prompted our team to come together as a community to examine how to advance racial equity, diversity and inclusivity within Cboe. This initiative is a top priority for Cboe’s Board of Directors, Executive team and associates around the world, who believe that we grow and become stronger when we bring new perspectives and a greater variety of experiences and viewpoints to our workplace.

Dedication to Good Citizenship

Cboe remains committed to being a local partner in the communities where we live and work — even as our business expands globally. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cboe donated $1 million to deploy patient isolation units to fire departments and hospitals in Chicago, New York and Kansas City. We also increased our matching gift rate from 100% to 150% per associate for donations made to nonprofit organizations that support COVID-19 related efforts, social justice issues, Black communities and Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. The influx in donations made through Cboe’s matching gift program was an inspiring testament to our associates’ dedication to good citizenship. I was heartened to see the outpouring of support from our associates, not only through monetary donations but also through their volunteerism and advocacy.

Looking Ahead

Cboe’s 48 years in business have been remarkable, but this past year proved what I have always known — that the Cboe team will always rise to the occasion and bring flexibility, creativity and innovative solutions along with them. The entrepreneurial and collaborative team spirit that has always defined Cboe has never been stronger. As we look ahead, we are poised to fully harness the strength of our team and build on our storied legacy of success with new solutions and market-defining innovations.
