Share

Optiver, a leading global market maker, is pleased to announce the launch of its corporate strategic investment initiative, Optiver Principal Strategic Investments (PSI). For more than 35 years, Optiver has been committed to improving global financial markets at every stage, for all parties involved. Through Optiver PSI, the firm seeks to build upon this mission by partnering with entrepreneurs shaping the financial markets of the future.

Historically, Optiver has been focused on its core activity of making markets in listed derivatives and equities. Through competitive pricing, execution and risk management, the firm’s 1300+ employees have remained steadfast in their shared commitment to improving the market. In recent years, the company has become increasingly outward looking throughout its global expansion. Optiver Principal Strategic Investments is therefore a natural evolution of the firm’s mission to shape financial markets of the future at increasing scale.

“More than ever before, Optiver is taking a proactive approach to seeing how partnering with external entrepreneurs and founders can further our overall mission to improve the markets,” said Jan Boomaars, Optiver Group CEO. “We are eager to discover and support the most innovative and impactful projects – not only in finance, but also in IT, blockchain and beyond. Our goal is to provide long-term guidance, mentorship and resources from true industry veterans.”

Drawing on deep market structure experience, Optiver PSI will be investing capital as well as its most precious resource – its people – into ideas spanning the full spectrum of FinTech, IT Infrastructure and Digital Assets. The initiative also provides access to Optiver’s invaluable network, which encompasses the leaders of today’s financial markets and infrastructure providers.

As part of a proprietary trading firm solely trading and investing its own capital, Optiver’s PSI team has the flexibility to partner with the most promising and relevant entrepreneurs - without specific size or return mandates. Optiver PSI seeks budding businesses with a clear connection and long-term innovation potential for its core business. Beyond this, it does not have strict investment application criteria.
