Michael Buchbinder: I knew my passion was building a company with Arif. We would talk every morning for nearly seven months about how to create our own brokerage. Finally, we took the leap. Our endeavor actually started with just one client. We owe a lot to them for enabling us to develop white-label technology and build our business. Between Arif's contacts within wealth management and mine with experienced traders... it was a synergy that worked perfectly.
