At MacroMarkets LLC, a financial product development company co-founded by Robert Shiller, Terry was a central figure in the launch of the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices, and a catalyst in developing new financial products and market infrastructure for U.S. home price risk management, including the CME Home Price Futures and Options market, and the first stock exchange-traded home price-linked securities.
