About IMC

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, they have grown internationally, trading primarily on the basis of data and algorithms, and using their execution platform to provide liquidity to financial markets globally.
