Many of us can relate to the weight of questioning what we should do with our lives. Po Bronson, who for years had been working as a bond salesman, found one day that he wanted to explore another path and endeavored to write a book based on that very question. The result has been years of study into passion, risk taking and resilience.
DRW Holdings, LLC (“DRW”) and RGM Advisors, LLC (“RGM”) today announced that DRW has agreed in principle to acquire Austin, TX-based principal trading firm RGM. Financial terms were not disclosed.
We are excited to welcome Adam Garner to DRW as Global Head of Fixed Income Options.
I’ve had many days at DRW – I’ve been here for over 15 years – and no two days are the same. I remember how uncomfortable I felt on my first day. I had a lot ahead of me – not only learning how to trade, but also navigating my first professional experience out of college. It was daunting, but I figured my only choice was to give it my all.
At DRW, we describe our trading as diverse – we trade asset classes and instruments using various strategies and we execute on an array of exchanges. This means we’re taking risk where we see opportunity, provide liquidity, and participate in latency sensitive trading – all at the same time, in markets around the world.
On October 8, 2016, a trader in DRW’s London office competed in the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. Before he set off to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 and run 26.2, we spoke with him to learn more about his journey to becoming one of the top Ironman athletes in the world and how his sport parallels his career.
When I was nearing the end of my college career, I saw two options: Silicon Valley or anywhere else in the world. Now, I just needed to choose. Easy, right?
