What We Do

Our massively scalable software and systems cover a wide-range of asset classes, from traditional equities cash, derivatives, ETF, FX, to large part of Fixed Income, commodities, bonds, swaps and cross-asset instruments. We support fully automated low-latency order handling up to highly complex manual and customised workflow required by some of our advanced users. We develop cutting-edge systems that are transforming our key business and enable transactions to occur in microseconds.

While our infrastructure is mostly written in C++ and C#, we are building services in Java, .NET Core, C, KDB, Python and Typescript. We are open-minded about our technology choices, leverage and contribute to open-source and cloud technologies.
