Lauren Simmons, 24, Featured NYSE Equity Trader

November 29, 2018

by Howard Haykin


Lauren Simmons, 24, is a NYSE floor trader with Rosenblatt Securities. Kiersey Clemons, 25, is an American film actress. And now the pair will forever be linked to a film ACG Studios will produce about Ms. Simmons’ journey to becoming the youngest full-time female trader on the New York Stock Exchange.


In June 2018, CNBC Make It published a feature story on Lauren Simmons, How this 23-year-old became the only full-time woman trader at the New York Stock Exchange, relating Ms. Simmons' move from college graduate to NYSE Floor trader. After graduating from Kennesaw State University in December 2016, Lauren Simmons moved to New York, where she planned to pursue a career in medicine. However, she quickly switched her sights to finance and  secured a job with Rosenblatt Securities in March 2017. Upon her passing the NYSE Floor Clerk/Member Series 19 Exam, Ms. Simmons became the youngest and, at the time, only full-time female trader at the NYSE.


Shortly after the feature story appeared on CNBC Make It, Ms. Simmons was approached by several production studios about developing a biopic. She opted for AGC Studios because she connected with Kiersey Clemons, who will produce the film and also play Lauren Simmons in the movie.
