Flow Traders



Flow Traders is a principal trading firm founded in 2004. We are a leading global technology-enabled liquidity provider, specialized in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). We are at the intersection of finance, cutting-edge technology and scientific research. Financial markets have rapidly shifted from trading in the pit to algorithmic trading, and our business model has made us an entrepreneurial and competitive firm in the FinTech space. We use our principal technology platform to quote bid and ask prices in thousands of ETP listings. We are also active in other asset classes such as bonds, FX, cryptocurrencies and similar financial products. On top of that, we provide liquidity to institutional counterparties off-exchange across all regions.

We stay ahead of the competition by focusing on technology and niche competencies in markets where every second counts. This requires access to the best information and the ability to respond instantly. To achieve this, our team of software developers works in partnership with experienced traders to identify and execute tomorrow's strategies, making us a daily pioneer in professional trading.

As a technology-enabled firm, we facilitate opportunities for young talent in technology. We created the Graduate Software Development program for ambitious graduates who like to be challenged every day. The program starts on the 1st of September 2021 at our headquarters in Amsterdam and the successful applicants join the company's development teams for one year to work on projects that cover multiple areas of our technology landscape.
