FOCUSED ON THE END INVESTOR

Consistent, competitive and fair prices. That’s what we stand for. At Optiver we strive for fast response, tight spreads and have the capacity for large block-size trades in a wide range of financial products around the world even under difficult market conditions.

With over 1000 Optiverians around the globe, we combine sophisticated technology with a thorough understanding of the underlying markets. Our unique long-term experience, risk management and market obligations mean that market participants benefit through lower liquidity risk and lower implicit transaction costs.

Optiver Institutional Trading offers qualified investors access to our liquidity and pricing across a broad array of fixed income and equity derivative markets. In addition Optiver has an award winning European ETF platform partnering with a diverse range of investors, including asset managers, pension funds, hedge funds and banks.

While screen trading remains at the heart of what we do, the changing market structure has made Optiver a counterparty of choice for the wholesale market and investment funds. True to our principles, Optiver charges zero commissions – what you see is what you get.
