Michael Liautaud

Manager, Education and Research at Commodity & Ingredient Hedging

As a manager on the education and research team, Mike helps agriculture industry participants gain a better understanding of marginal management concepts and strategies. In targeted private and public seminars, he teaches the mechanics of the futures and options industry, translating complex ideas and formulas into simple language. He also contributes to CIH publications focused on risk management for agriculture producers and buyers. He is responsible for creating several studies that help hedgers understand the dynamics of constantly changing market information.

Mike follows a strong family tradition of working in the financial industry. His father was a Treasury bond trader on the CBOT trading floor, and his grandfather and great grandfather were stockbrokers during the 1920s into the 1970s. Prior to joining CIH in 2010, Mike spent six years as a broker supporting hedgers and speculators. He studied computer engineering at Purdue University and holds his Series 3 (National Commodities Futures Examination) license. Mike, his wife, and son live in the Chicago suburbs and enjoy spending time outdoors, playing golf and going to Chicago Cubs baseball games.
