Mako is an options market making and proprietary trading firm with a global trading footprint, operating in the Equities, Fixed Income, Commodities and FX derivatives markets.
Mako's history has followed options market making from open outcry in the trading pits of London, Amsterdam and North America through to screen based trading and, more recently, the current trend towards automation, latency sensitive execution and algorithmic strategies. Underpinning Mako's success in this journey is our expertise in managing risk and our entrepreneurial and collaborative culture.
Mako’s Sydney office was established in October 2017. This is an exciting opportunity to become an integral part of small team in a start-up environment as it expands.
