Advantage Futures has announced it will increase its Chicago presence by moving to 231 S. LaSalle St. in the city’s financial district. The 10-year lease includes 41,500 square feet of office space. Advantage plans to take occupancy later this month.
“We are very excited with this dramatic expansion in Chicago. The beautiful new office provides the technology infrastructure, flexibility and environment to sustain our growing business,” said Advantage Futures Chairman Joe Guinan. “This state-of-the-art trading facility will better serve our clients while enhancing the workspace quality for all Advantage Futures employees.”
Advantage will maintain its execution team on the CME Group trading floor. In addition, Advantage retains its Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Center in Downers Grove as well as 10 data centers ensuring redundant connectivity and server colocation facilities.
“Advantage Futures is somewhat unique among futures brokers in that we offer end-to-end solutions for traders including technology, network infrastructure, back-office support, as well as private or shared office space for clients,” said John Schlaefke, chief administrative officer at Advantage Futures. “The new office reflects our significant commitment to our clients.”
