In 1992, our founder saw an opportunity to start a new type of trading firm – one that applies modeling, technology and quantitative research to identify opportunities in the global financial markets.
Over 30 years later, the combination of these three areas has made DRW one of the leaders in global markets and has created significant runway for the growth of our firm. We still trade for our own account and the absence of outside investors enables us to be innovative and nimble in capturing opportunities.
One of the drivers of this growth and our ongoing innovation has been the belief that each of our nearly 2,000 employees must be empowered to pursue new opportunities, develop new technologies and challenge the consensus of how we’ve always done things. This has enabled DRW to build state-of-the-art technology, create thoughtful market analysis, and implement proven risk management strategies.
Since 1992, DRW has always stayed true to our roots: The ability to identify and capture opportunities by leveraging technology, research and appropriate risk management.
