Fort Washington Investments - Trading in a Fishbowl

MariBeth Rahe, president and CEO of Fort Washington Investment Advisors, Inc., knew that when the company moved to its location on Broadway, "We wanted our focal point to be our trading floor." Three of the four trading room walls are glass, offering views of the Ohio River. Clients are wowed by the high tech room (it has 22 flat panel screens) that's spacious and, unlike other trading rooms, full of sunlight.
Rahe worked with executive assistant Kathy Louden as well as Tim Policinski, Fort Washington's managing director and senior portfolio manager, to create a place that would work best for the traders.

"When visitors come in they're literally looking at everyone working," Policinski says. "It can get little rowdy and loud sometimes, but it is a very fun, functional place to work."
