Lindsey Effner ~ Options Trader

BA, Actuarial Science & Economics - May 2008

What did you like about Butler?

Great Education, Amazing Campus, Study Abroad Opportunities, Meeting the people that made my experience so wonderful, and being an Alpha Phi.

What did you after graduation?

I accepted a full-time job with Northwestern Mutual as an Actuary.  I did two rotations and got interested in personal options trading after working on the trading floor as an actuary.  My husband and I decided to leave Milwaukee and moved to Seattle (without jobs...yikes!).  I started trading with my father and began taking classes to pursue being an options trader.

What are you doing now?

I have now been a trader for 1.5 years and am back with Northwestern Mutual, running financial analyses and illustrations for the Financial Representatives.
