Options opens new Toronto office

RELATED TOPICS​

Options, the leading provider of managed trading infrastructure and connectivity to the global Capital Markets, has opened a new office in Toronto.

As Options continues to increase its client base across Canada, locating in Toronto provides a strong foothold for the company to develop and deepen its support for clients across regional Canadian markets.

To manage Toronto operations, Robert Strawbridge was appointed as the Options’ VP Head of Canada late last year, bringing with him over a decade of experience working with numerous foreign exchange technologies and e-Trading platforms. As a former Scotiabank executive, Robert is well-positioned to support Options clients on the ground. In addition to client support, he is responsible for the expansion of Options’ client base alongside the management and recruitment of staff in the region.

Danny Moore, Options’ President, and CEO, says: “Options has experienced a period of exponential growth on our platform over the past number of years, including double-digit growth across our Managed Colocation business. Toronto is known for its deep talent market and having worked with clients in the Toronto region for many years now, it was clear to us that this innovative, vibrant city was the obvious place for our next office opening.”

Toronto Mayor, John Tory, says: “The Toronto Region has emerged as a North American leader in the convergence of financial services and technology. International businesses are choosing to invest in the region, leveraging the fastest-growing tech talent pool in North America. I’m thrilled that Options will call Toronto home, with one of the most educated and diverse workforces in the world – creating jobs for our talented residents and contributing to regional economic recovery and growth.”

Today’s news marks the latest in a string of announcements for Options, including the acquisition of Fixnetix, their partnership with Packets2Disk to provide Market-Leading Network Analytics, and a decade of SOC compliance.

In 2019, Options received investment from Boston-based Private Equity Firm, Abry Partners. This investment has enabled Options to accelerate its growth strategy and develop its technology platform whilst expanding its reach in key financial centres globally.
