Optiver, a global market maker, has launched 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 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,” says 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.”
