A history of continuous success in a changing marketplace
Gelber Group – Founded 1982
Brian and Frank Gelber founded Gelber Group as a brokerage firm on the Chicago Board of Trade floor in 1982. Fifteen years later, their entrepreneurial grit and ingenuity led them to leave the floor, embrace the “screen,” and launch Gelber Group as a proprietary trading firm. Recognizing the potential of technology driven markets, Gelber forged new ground in the algorithmic environment turning it into one of the leading businesses of its kind.
Throughout its history, the firm has continuously evolved in meaningful ways and now employs more than 200 team members headquartered in the firm’s 42,000 square foot “home” in downtown Chicago. Despite the firms’ willingness to embrace and capitalize on change, one thing has remained constant: Gelber Group’s ability to anticipate what’s coming next and to excel within an increasingly dynamic marketplace.
