Thirty years ago, Optiver started business as a single trader on the floor of Amsterdam's options exchange. Today, we are at the forefront of trading and technology, employing over 950 employees of 40 nationalities across offices in Amsterdam, Sydney, Chicago and Shanghai. How did we get here? With an unwavering focus on continuous development and our mission to improve the market.
We stick to what we're good at: making markets in a wide range of financial products. This clear focus has always served us well. We use our own capital, at our own risk, to trade on major financial markets around the world. By constantly providing liquidity, volume and competitive prices, we contribute to the stability and smooth functioning of fair, transparent and reliable markets. Our innovative trading systems are key to our success, enabling us to respond swiftly to every change in the market.
