Chris Hehmeyer and I first started talking about crypto over a year ago, so I thought it would be a great time to catch up with him and hear more about how his firm has progressed from having new initiatives focused on crypto markets to more mature products and offerings. I also wanted to let Chris explain the why behind the reasoning for his firm, Hehmeyer Trading + Investments (HTI), to “go big” in this space and how they became crypto and blockchain believers!
While the name Chris Hehmeyer is probably familiar to anybody close to futures trading in the U.S., this is the Crypto Corner, so I’ll touch the tip of the iceberg on the background of the guy I have admired mostly from afar during my 20+ years in the business. I’ll also mention that Chris was on a crypto panel at the recent FIA Expo 2018 in Chicago, and had a great Will Rogers-esque quip that got a great laugh in the room. In fact, one of my co-workers said after that panel, “I could listen to Hehmeyer talk all day.”
