Raj Fernando: Bringing Years of Experience with Him to Scoutahead

Raj Fernando, the former founder and CEO of chopper trading, now leads Scoutahead into the future as their founder and chief executive officer. Scoutahead, an internet startup, is a company that was created to improve corporate productivity and professional growth.  This is a vital service in today’s world because so much trusted information is sent through other means that are not nearly as secure as the system used by Scoutahead.

Raj brings twenty-five years of expertise and experience in dealing with international financial markets and 10 years of experience in the cyber security industry. Speaking as a featured panelist on the US Commodity Trading Futures Commission (CFTC), in 2010, he supported its cause in nurturing open, competitive, financially sound, and transparent markets. As CEO of Chopper Trading, Raj, managed, implemented, and designed some of the most refined trading, risk management, communications, monitoring and source code security systems in the financial industry. He grew that company into one of largest market participants that traded on the biggest global exchanges including Nasdaq, LSE, the CME, ICE, and Eurex.

On top of his business accolades, Raj is a very generous philanthropist and enjoys helping others wherever he can. He serves on the Board of Trustees for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as well as the Board of Directors for PAWS Chicago, a no-kill animal shelter. He has also promoted the Wounded Warriors; a veterans and charity organization that serves up a variety of programs, services and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following September 11, 2001, the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago; a program that helps children realize their potential and build their futures, and the Clinton Foundation; an organization established by the former President Bill Clinton to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence.

  1. When Raj sold Chopper Trading in 2015 to DWR, it had 250 employees, worldwide, and many of them were some of the most brilliant traders and engineers in the world. It does so through the use of advanced and very secure communication systems. I also would make the assignment writer get in touch with everything that is coming forth all of sudden.
