A Brief History
In 1992, CEO and co-founder Perry Jonkheer established Institutional Advisory Services Group (IASG) in Chicago, Illinois following twenty years of experience in the commodity futures industry. Throughout his career, Perry has managed or been an active participant in over $2.5 billion in alternative investment assets-acting as a trusted professional with in-depth institutional investment experience. He began his futures trading career in 1972 at Lamson Brothers, the oldest futures broker in the World at the time, where he eventually became the company's top broker. In 1974, he became a trader with the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) and then head of International Futures from the floor. Five years later, Kelly Commodities asked Perry Jonkheer to exclusively trade the proprietary account with a special focus on the soybean complex, corn and wheat markets. Perry started International Investor, Inc., an independent introducing broker in 1986 and then, in 1992, started Institutional Advisory Services Group, Inc. (IASG). Following this, he became the sole Managed Futures consultant to Credit Suisse Asset Management's $700M alternative investment fund, helping in all phases from fund construction to manager selection and due diligence to daily monitoring. Mr. Jonkheer is licensed with the National Futures Association (NFA). IASG is registered as an Independent Introducing Broker, Commodity Pool Operator (CPO) and Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA).
