Ralph Goldenberg was a longtime futures trader, exchange member, brokerage executive who served as the chief executive officer of GH Traders, Ltd. He passed away in July of 2022 at the age of 87.

Goldenberg is a member of the Futures Industry Association Hall of Fame.

Background[edit]

Goldenberg attended Evanston Township High School and then the University of Chicago.

Goldenberg joined the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) in 1961. At the CBOT, he served as vice chairman, 2nd vice chairman, director, and as a member of the executive committee.[1]

In 1982, Goldenberg was slated by the nominating committee of the CBOT to replace sitting Chairman Lesley Rosenthal for chairman of the exchange. Goldenberg lost to Rosenthal by 105 votes, 659 1/2 votes for Rosenthal and 554 1/2 votes for Goldenberg.[2][3]

He also held the posts of chairman of the finance, education, membership, soybean, special marketing and commodity options, and regulatory oversight committees. In addition, Goldenberg served as vice chairman of the business conduct committee, chairman of the Task Force on Member Opportunity in 1992, and chairman of the strategy committee in 1994.

In 1988 and 1989 Goldenberg was chairman at the Board of Trade Clearing Corporation. Prior to that position, he was vice chairman in 1987, and a member of the BOTCC board of governors from 1985 through 1990.

Goldenberg has been an active member of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) since 1973, and was responsible for the startup of Goldman, Sachs & Co.'s operation there.

Goldenberg was one of the founding partners of Goldenberg, Hehmeyer & Co. In 1999, Goldenberg moved to the United Kingdom to spearhead GHCO's expansion toward a global presence. He established the firm's London headquarters where he continued to manage GH Traders, the proprietary trading firm that formed as a result of the Penson Worldwide acquisition of GHCO.[4]

On March 12, 2009, Goldenberg was inducted into the Futures Hall of Fame, which was established in 2005 to commemorate outstanding contributions to the global futures and options community.[5]

Goldenberg testified in the criminal trial of Anthony Catalfo, a trader who cleared his trades through Goldenberg-Hehmeyer, and was part of a conspiracy with Darryl Zimmerman to manipulate the 30-Year Treasury futures and options markets at the Chicago Board of Trade in order to generate large profits.[6][7]

Education[edit]

Goldenberg attended the University of Chicago and the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business.
