The occasion will see the hard launch of a particularly intriguing new CTA business, County Cork LLC, out of Skokie, Illinois, a thoroughbred coming from the racing stable of R J O'Brien. The futures commission merchant will celebrate 100 years in the business next year, under the directorship of its family, including its founder's namesake, Robert J O'Brien Jr.

R J O'Brien as a firm has had its share of interesting times over recent years, having been bought in 2008 by a private equity group, and then bought back again, at a discount, by the O'Brien family in 2010 in a deal widely described in the US as 'the best futures trade never done in the pit.'
