In the past, structured note trading was something only available to high-powered firms or wealthy individuals. A new startup, Halo Investing, is turning that on its head and democratizing structured note trading so that everyone can get a piece of what has become a $3-trillion market. Our guest this week on Limit Up!, Biju Kulathakal, discusses the future of structured note trading and why traders should get in on it now.
Biju also talks about his time as a trader and how it helped guide him toward his current role as the CEO of a startup. Also, be sure to stay tuned for this week’s MARKet Reaction.
