Trader Monthly: 30 Top Traders under 30 Years of Age

At one point early in his career, Lars Toomre was considered a top Wall Street trader while leading the Collateralized Mortgage Obligation (“CMO”) business at Lehman Brothers in New York. However, Lars unlikely would have qualified as a member of one of the top 30 traders under 30 years of age. Had such a list existed back in the 1980’s, it would be interesting today to discover how the careers of such individuals progressed in the years since. For instance, how many still would be actively involved in the sales and trading business? And if not, where would their interests have led them today?

The Trader Monthly magazine is scheduled shortly to release their second annual compilation of the top 30 such traders for 2006. Hearty congratulations to each of these top traders listed below in alphabetical order:
