Founder & CEO

Asad Samar has 10+ years of experience in the high frequency trading industry, and has served in top management roles in investment banks and proprietary trading firms. He holds a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University.


We encourage trading entrepreneurship - allowing young fresh minds to try out new ‘alternative’ ideas in the field of trading. Our state of the art risk management allows this in a safe and externally-consistent manner.

We work hard, play hard in a relaxed, fun atmosphere, where discussions and exchange of ideas is encouraged.

We are always looking for talented people to join our team.
