It paved the way for him to the world of business where he founded Chopper Trading. The typical experience during the opening of markets is overwhelming; but unlike it, Chopper Trading experiences overwhelming traffic in business only when they close down. His mission is hiring the best in the field for proper customer services. Customer service in a firm equals the number of clients retained. According to Raj, employees should not frustrate clients or the pioneers of Chopper Trading.
