A year in business is a long time. In fact, Off Balance frets when we think about the great wodge that is our workload between now and Crimbo.

Then again, they say that busy people make more time. And this must have been the case for CME Group’s CFO Jamie Parisi, who has retired from the futures and options marketplace at 49 years old.

As he is someone of such ‘advanced years’, OB was surprised that he has then been replaced by his deputy John Pietrowicz – who is a whopping 12 months older.

OB is, of course, concerned for Pietrowicz’s welfare, and can only assume that a stairlift and walk-in bath have been fitted to help accommodate him.

As you can tell, OB has no intention of retiring late. Anyway, this is more of a lifestyle gig as it is.
