Intensely focused problem solvers
Who we areScroll
As a quantitative market maker, that’s what excites us: identifying opportunities to add value in the markets and engineering custom solutions to capitalize on our ideas.
Old Mission is privately held — we set our own expectations. We don’t answer to shareholders, analysts, or the quarterly earnings cycle. We are free to think long term, deliberately engineering unique solutions to the market’s most pressing problems.
We work with the world’s largest exchanges, banks, and brokers as a trusted partner in financial markets. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of ethical conduct and always act with the long-term interests of our customers, partners, and the markets in mind.
In 2008 we saw an opportunity in the ETF market — by pursuing a unique approach and engineering custom technology, we were able to price and trade illiquid securities more efficiently than the market. Over time, our knowledge and codebase grew and eventually developed into a platform that allows us to make markets in a wide range of securities that covers nearly every exchange-traded asset class.
Old Mission has over a decade of experience as a quantitative market making firm, a unique history of developing new strategies from scratch, and a track record of successfully managing risk during extreme volatility and market uncertainty. But we don’t rest on our laurels – we’re committed to constantly improving all aspects of our organization to ensure we remain an industry leading liquidity provider.
