About Volant Trading

Volant is an equal partnership of exceptional traders, quantitative strategists, and technologists who seek out and share each others’ expertise every day as they collaborate toward a collective goal. Founded in 2006, our consistent track record of success is a testament to what can be accomplished when smart, motivated people from a variety of disciplines are given the opportunity to work together collegially.

In our highly-competitive, ever-evolving industry, we know we are only as good as the caliber of the people on our team. That’s why Volant is full of creative, well-rounded self-starters who thrive when they’re firing on all cylinders. Building dynamic teams around the world, we have never lost sight of our original commitment to provide a culture of meritocracy and the free flow of ideas.

TRADING

Volant is a global proprietary trading firm that specializes in providing liquidity through options market-making, equities, futures, and FX trading. By combining trading expertise with state-of-the-art technology, we are able to provide two-sided prices in hundreds of thousands of instruments worldwide.

In the highly competitive landscape of electronic exchanges, trading floors, and the inter-dealer broker market, Volant is there, making markets better.

TECHNOLOGY

Our trading systems process massive amounts of data, value complex sets of derivatives, search for elusive trading opportunities, execute at sub-microsecond granularity, and stream quotes to exchanges around the clock—and around the world.

Because Volant’s best-in-class trading technology is critical to our success, our engineering team is always ahead of the curve, constantly incorporating emerging innovations and cutting-edge technology to our automated trading systems and sophisticated data analysis tools.

Our technologists and traders work side-by-side, an environment that allows us to quickly build and execute smart new approaches.

EXECUTION SERVICES

The execution services division of Volant Trading, called VOLEX Execution Services, uses our ultra-low latency infrastructure, along with specialized knowledge of the options market, to offer a high-speed liquidity sweep capability. Designed for option traders, VOLEX Take OutTM aggressively sweeps displayed and hidden liquidity, and processes orders in sub-millisecond timeframes.
