Inside A Day

Graham has offices in Connecticut, Florida, and London. Our headquarters are located in Rowayton, CT, a suburb of New York City. Many of our team members live in New York City and commute by train (which takes approximately an hour from Grand Central). Other employees live in surrounding towns in Fairfield County, Connecticut, which is home to several of the largest investment institutions in the world.

Work with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Our in-house resources and programs are designed to inspire collaboration and creativity, as well as encourage the freedom to develop independent ideas. Regular “Lunch and Learns,” educational sessions, and our internal technology platform seek to foster a transparent and collaborative environment and develop talent across departments.

Each department has kitchen facilities stocked with a selection of complimentary coffees and teas, as well as fruit and snacks to help fuel the day. In addition, full breakfast and lunch options are available in our gourmet dining facility, including daily grill and entrée specials, specially curated wellness meals, fruit and salad bars, freshly prepared smoothies, a deli station, and soup options. Takeout dinners are available as well. Whether you choose to dine indoors or “al fresco” on our patio with stunning harbor views, taking a break to refuel is essential for staying focused and energized throughout the workday.

In our fast-paced work environment, where new challenges and exciting ideas constantly arise, we’re dedicated to not just keeping up with the cutting edge of theory and technology but also to finding innovative solutions. Our flat management structure, combined with regular collaboration across departments, fosters an atmosphere where exploring new ideas and solving challenges go hand in hand.

Graham understands that employee health and wellness are vital to thinking creatively and strategically and setting new ideas in motion.  Our complimentary onsite fitness facility supports personal training, small group fitness classes, and a meditation room. Our team members also enjoy the ability to unwind with colleagues after work in downtown Rowayton or nearby Darien at a number of restaurants, many of which overlook the harbor.

The risk of loss in trading commodities can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity trading can work against you as well as for you. The use of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains.

In some cases, managed commodity accounts are subject to substantial charges for management and advisory fees. It may be necessary for those accounts that are subject to these charges to make substantial trading profits to avoid depletion or exhaustion of their assets. The disclosure document contains a complete description of the principal risk factors and each fee to be charged to your account by the commodity trading advisor (“CTA”). The regulations of the commodity futures trading commission (“CFTC”) require that prospective clients of a CTA receive a disclosure document when they are solicited to enter into an agreement whereby the CTA will direct or guide the client’s commodity interest trading and that certain risk factors be highlighted. This brief statement cannot disclose all of the risks and other significant aspects of the commodity markets. Therefore, eligible investors should carefully study the disclosure document to determine whether such trading is appropriate for you in light of your financial condition. Eligible investors are encouraged to access the disclosure document by contacting Graham, which will be provided  at no additional cost.
