Derivatives trading is our passion

We created technology to make it your passion, too.

We've combined years of experience from the leading firms on Wall Street to create a powerful and beautiful technology solution for the unique workflows of our industry.

The unrivaled ease and unmatched efficiency of our technology makes derivatives a viable option for a wider array of organizations. With hundreds of clients and billions of notional under management, the complexities of Dodd-Frank compliance or hedge accounting are a thing of the past.

We see ourselves as partners, bringing our experience to help financial institutions, commercial end users, and buy-side clients execute and manage their over-the-counter interest rate and FX derivative transactions.

Our team is comprised of derivative industry veterans with experience at the world's largest capital market firms including: Wells Fargo, ABN AMRO, Bank of America, Barclays, CIBC, AIG, and more.
