Profile of FRANK KOREN

Frank started in the brokerage business when he was 17 or 18 marking the board at Watt & Watt. He then became a phone clerk with W.C. Pitfield and when he turned 21 in 1956 he obtained his trading papers. During his close to fifty years on the floor he worked for a number of firms, including Pitfield; Baker Weeks; Jones, Heward; Research Capital; Brown, Baldwin & Nisker (later HSBC James Capel). When he retired in 2000, he was trading on the options floor.

The trading floor and the people there were a huge part of Frank's life. He loved the people and going to work every day. He made so many great, life-long friends there.
