UTR8 was founded in 2011 as a proprietary trading firm by former partners of one of the leading firms in the business. Trading on own account and risk, we maintain a continuous market presence on many major exchanges around the world.


Our talented, experienced team has the drive to outperform in a results-driven world. We believe working in a relaxed but focused atmosphere is one of the keys that makes our success durable. Therefore, maintaining our culture as core value is one of the three elements of our success. Excelling in unique strategies and partnerships are the other two drivers on which our company is built.

We are strong supporters of transparent, fair and orderly markets, and we are therefore convinced that every financial product that can be exchange-traded, also should be exchange-traded. This is why UTR8 only focuses on exchange-traded products and is not involved in any non-transparent products or markets.
