OUR IMPACT

Our core value is building strong relationships with our institutional clients, which include corporations, financial service providers, and fund managers.

We help them buy and sell financial products on exchanges around the world, raise funding, and manage risk. This is a dynamic, entrepreneurial team with a passion for the markets, with individuals who thrive in fast-

paced, changing environments and are energized by a bustling trading floor.

Systematic Trading Strategies (STS) trading is part of the Global Ex-otics and Structured Products trading team which trades, prices and risk manages a wide array of non-

delta space. We work very closely with the structuring and sales teams globally to create innovative structures, solutions and strategies for our franchise, while also risk managing positions that cannot be easily hedged.
