What Our Clients Say About Us
I have enjoyed working with Peter since 2009. I think he is the most conscientious broker I have ever encountered in my more than 30 years of investing. He always responds to my queries very quickly and never leaves me confused or with more questions. It is nice to know that I can contact him and get an immediate response. We have enjoyed talking about more than investing on many occasions; including my Mario Andretti Racing Experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway where I drove an Indy 500 racecar at 160 MPH. Peter and I enjoyed talking about that experience!

I have held accounts with Foremost Trading for a number of years and value the diversity these investments contribute to my overall portfolio. The relationship I maintain with this company is not of the “auto-pilot” variety. I stay with Foremost because of its people and their emphasis on ethical business practice. My account contact, Colson, checks in about investment performance and opportunities that might be a good fit for me. He responds promptly and courteously whenever I contact him with a question. When a crisis hit the industry (the PFG calamity), the Foremost team, victims themselves, put their clients first with timely, helpful communications and assistance. Whether they know it or not, the Foremost business philosophy is to treat each client as if he or she is the only client.

When I first started trading Futures, I had the good fortune of having Michele assigned as my broker. As you can imagine a new trader has lots of odd questions and special needs; I was no exception. Michele graciously guided me along the way so I could “stand on my own.”
Through my success and failures as a self-directed trader, she has always been my aid, someone I could always count on. Over the years in talking about goals and objectives, I’ve come to know Michele beyond the confines of trading not only as my broker whom I trust, but as a woman who sees the world with the eyes of an artist, a gracious companion for the journey, and a friend. I thank God for Michele’s support of my trading endeavors.
I have known Steven Hansen for 30+ years, even before he joined the CBOT in 1982. He has always been a trusted friend and confidant to my mother and me regarding trades with the NYSE throughout the years. He now oversees both my IRA account and commodity trading account (CTA) through Foremost. Steven is very involved with his clients’ investing concerns. He responds quickly to questions and researches answers thoroughly. He is generous with his time and I feel my investment concerns are on his priority dashboard.
I have been dealing with Paul for over 20 yrs. He has traveled to my small town in Ohio twice. I am a very small client, and not one of his brightest, but over the years Paul has made me feel like a friend. He is one of Foremost’s best.

In the broker world, where self-interest too often carries the day, and brokers tend to see themselves as their most important client, Liz stands apart. I don’t believe I would be in any investment vehicles today, other than my 401k, if I hadn’t met her. True character can take time for one to fully value and appreciate, after two years of a professional relationship I have found Liz to be conscientious as the day is long. Customer service and communication beyond anything I’ve experienced, combined with her attractive, upbeat personality, keep me more than satisfied. I consider myself fortunate to have her in my corner, and couldn’t recommend her more highly!
