On our busiest days, we trade over $8 billion in equities worldwide. We are also very active in the markets for options, futures, currencies, commodities, and fixed income.
We are active participants on more than 200 electronic exchanges and other trading venues in about 40 countries around the world.
On a busy day, we engage in over a million trades.
Quantitative analysis and insights into related markets enable us to make competitive markets in even the most complicated products. Technology is at the core of how we approach trading, and we consider ourselves as much a technology company as a trading firm.
Jane Street was founded In 2000 by three traders and a technologist with a common vision:
Jane Street has grown every year in its team, capital, and global presence, while enhancing its expertise in technology, operations, and trading. We safely navigated the dotcom and subprime excesses, staying true to our core focus rather than following the herd.
Jane Street’s team is now over 600 strong, and our trading volumes have skyrocketed as we’ve refined our understanding of how to value, trade, and hedge complex securities.
