Shanghai is our gateway to China’s financial markets
Optiver opened its Shanghai office in 2012 with a vision of becoming a trusted partner in the development of Chinese financial markets. Fast forward to today, we’re a rapidly growing participant in China. With the culture of a start-up but the backing of a global trading powerhouse, Optiver Shanghai is a truly unique location.
As a major global centre of finance, trading and innovation, Shanghai is known to many as the ‘Pearl of Asia’. The city is a fascinating blend of old and new, and is home to an exquisite local cuisine that’s based on traditional techniques and authentic recipes. Beyond the frenzied city centre are Shanghai’s ancient water towns, which offer a tranquil getaway from fast-paced urban life.
Our trading activities
Optiver’s Shanghai office is located in the heart of this financial city and is focussed on trading physical commodities and related derivatives, index, cash equity products and more. We frequently share our experience and knowledge with local participants to promote the long-term healthy development of the market.
