IMC Trading

AFTERNOON FAIR & AFTERNOON CASE

EVENTS
Are you in your final year of a mathematics, engineering or econometrics degree programme? Are you keen to learn more about a technology-driven trading firm?

 

At IMC, we’ve historically focused on pure, low-latency execution-based trading. But now, we’re leveraging our world-class technology and trading expertise to run operational trading strategies. We’ve got our sights set on worldwide index options, and we’re leading the charge on liquid worldwide indices. In addition to our robust broker network, we also provide liquidity to counterparties directly – including hedge funds, asset managers and other large market players.

During the LED 2023, you’ll learn about all this and more. And we’ll make sure you get a glimpse of IMC’s uniquely informal culture.

TRADING
IMC trades a wide range of financial instruments, in many different ways. This means we look for different types of traders; from the quantitative minds who enjoy the mathematical side of trading to more operationally focused personalities who thrive on interacting with brokers over the phone.

Our traders share one thing in common, though: they are at their best when solving complex problems. Their insights into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we always trade in the right place, at the right time.

TECHNOLOGY
At IMC, technology is not a department; it’s at the heart of everything we do. Since the late 1980s, we’ve pioneered the use of technology to advance the development of market making and low-latency trading. Today, our technologists work alongside IMC traders in multidisciplinary teams to push the limits of possibility, and then look beyond. In our fast-paced environment, short feedback loops mean projects worked on in the morning can enter production the next day.
