WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT A TRADING CAREER AT IMC?

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.

Positional Market Making at IMC

At IMC we run Positional Market Making strategies which are separate from our usual low-latency, execution based market making strategies. We rely on macro research and historical signals to place opinionated, relative value trades on asset classes globally, primarily index options. We also provide liquidity to large market players (asset managers/hedge funds) who wish to trade in large size.
