Electronic Trading

Options Group has been in the forefront of Electronic Trading recruitment since the late 90’s. In addition to helping build out Electronic Trading businesses from scratch, we have advised our clients on how to transition from manual to fully automated businesses. Our global reach has given us the advantage of creating cross-border solutions for the sell side, buy side and proprietary trading firms. We have recruited top tier Traders, Quant Researchers and High Performance Technologists to stay ahead of the curve in this evolving business.


Our practice covers a broad range of functions and products across the industry. Several of our search consultants are PhD level, as well as former industry professionals who target the top-tier population and vet these prospective candidates prior to our client introductions. We partner with Investment Banks, covering both the electronic trading and distribution markets, as well as the key vendors who provide cutting edge, real-time solutions to the sell side. We also work with various clients globally on the buy side. These clients tend to be fully systematic hedge funds and professional trading houses that look to hire best-in-class portfolio managers with their own successful strategies, track records, and quantitative research analysts who work to develop fully automated trading strategies and models for implementation.


Process-driven, research-intensive methodology differentiates Options Group from the competition. We pride ourselves on the clients with whom we partner, some of which having paved the way for where we are today in Electronic Trading. We have been very fortunate to work closely with senior management and founders, allowing us to grasp a macro view. As a result, we’re able to be the “Trend-Setters” for our clients, advising them of the overall market and perceptions within E-Trading. See practice leaders and placements
