Maven entered the building in September 2011. The London based firm was founded by former traders from two known market makers. Some came from Optiver directly (Ivan Koedjikov), others have spent some time at Tibra before leaving for Maven (Ben Huda, Ian Toon). It’s a small world, and as far as I can see it’s a small company too. The financial report notes a staff of four people. That’s an average, starting with zero employees and ending with eight.
Maven Trading is active on the cash market and as a market maker, also active in the AEX index options. In their first year, the revenues have been 4,5 million pound and a profit of 2,2 million. That’s pretty decent in the first year. The salaries have been 1,4 million.
Interesting to see such impressive results with such a small company. Firm is using Actant for trading.
