About IMC

For three decades IMC has provided liquidity to the financial markets globally. Specialised in algorithmic trading and advanced technology, they set the pace for the evolution of market making.

Cutting-edge technology is at the heart of all we do. We put it to work in the markets that define our world. Across offices in Amsterdam, Chicago, Sydney and Mumbai, technologists and traders team up to explore, design and develop the software, hardware, advanced networks and algorithms that drive our trading strategies.

IMC is as much a technology firm as a trading house. We invest significant time and resources to ensure our traders have the best tools for the job. That means continually developing and innovating to improve productivity and performance for both traders and developers. By employing the best talent and providing an environment in which knowledge and skills can thrive, we bring value to the market.

Our History

IMC was founded in 1989 by two traders working on the floor of the Amsterdam Equity Options Exchange. While today’s industry is highly automated, back then trading was executed on the exchange floor by traders manually calculating the price to buy or sell. IMC was among the first to spot the importance of technology and innovation in the evolution of market making and invested early, helping shape the future of trading.

That entrepreneurial spirit and innovative culture still drives IMC, which stands for International Marketmaker’s Combination. In 30 years we’ve grown internationally, trading primarily on the basis of data and algorithms, and using our execution platform to provide liquidity to financial markets globally.

Our Culture

At IMC we make significant investments in both people and infrastructure. We’re proud of our open culture which fosters teamwork and innovation. If someone has a good idea, we’ll seek to make it happen today. Our core values capture how we operate as a firm.

Hiring talented people and giving them lots of responsibility

Our employees are the core of our success. We hire talented people and give them lots of responsibility, support and freedom to make an impact. There are no silos or invisible barriers, and we will recognise the best ideas, regardless of hierarchy. We encourage our employees to have fun, and while we celebrate success, we also strive to keep both feet firmly on the ground.

Making things happen today and making them better tomorrow

As an ambitious company we are always ready to take the next step. We dare to imagine how things could be and then make it happen. We continuously plan for the future, anticipating change and innovating. We know that a good idea today may need re-thinking tomorrow.

Being here to stay

IMC is here to stay. We plan and invest for the future, and our employees are encouraged to take responsibility, not only for themselves, but also for others. As a participant in the financial markets, we recognise our responsibility to the industry and to our counterparties to be reliable and dependable. Therefore we have very high standards of compliance and risk controls. We also recognise we have a responsibility to the societies in which we live and work through our IMC Foundations.

Diverse people bring diverse ideas

Diversity of thought is a powerful ally of innovation. It’s why our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion policy is more than just a statement, it’s a way of life at IMC.

The people that we employ at IMC come from over 70 nationalities (and counting). Knowing that our success has been built on the diversity of our people, we commit to building a diverse, fair, inclusive, and safe work environment for all.
