It's no accident that R.J. O'Brien & Associates (RJO) is still around nearly 100 years after it was conceived in 1914.
Robert J. O'Brien Sr. is a man known for industry firsts: he took delivery of the first live cattle contract traded on the CME, broadcast the first live commodity report from the trading floor and sponsored the first woman to work on the trading floor.
Today, RJO, one of only a handful of family-owned clearing firms, relies on a sound integration of proprietary technology and the expertise of our people to serve our customers according to the high standards they have come to expect.
RJO is committed to our employees because our employees are committed to our clients. Nearly a century of experience, success and growth can attest to that.
