"Our Founding Partners, including Akuna’s CEO Andrew Killion, first conceptualized Akuna in their hometown of Sydney. They opened the firm’s first office in 2011 in the heart of the derivatives industry and the options capital of the world – Chicago. Today, Akuna is proud to operate from additional offices in Sydney, Shanghai, Boston, London and Austin.

Akuna Capital is a proprietary trading firm specializing in derivatives market making and sophisticated modeling with a commitment to cutting-edge technology.

We are the leading options market maker to successfully enter the industry in recent years with sustainable growth. By providing more liquidity to the markets through rapid innovation, we have the advantage of youth in remaining nimble and agile in an ever-changing competitive landscape.

Akuna has no clients or external investors, we trade only with the company’s capital. We have dozens of employee shareholders and this number continues to grow.

We are really proud of what we have accomplished since inception, but even more excited for all that lies ahead of us. We are still building, accessing new markets, trading new products and creating new strategies, giving you the opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of Akuna. Indeed, the great majority of Akuna’s growth profile is ahead of us."

"The sFOX story - Building the nexus of global liquidity

In 2014, sFOX’s founders observed immense fragmentation and complexities in crypto. Having built five trading platforms in the equities markets—including UNX and Nuveen Investments—they saw a need for a platform that integrated the crypto ecosystem via a single point of access, resolving inefficiencies and pooling liquidity from global sources.

The resulting platform is sFOX, the scalable solution for institutional crypto trading. Built entirely in-house with proprietary technology, sFOX’s seamless and secure infrastructure makes it easier for professionals to trade digital assets, realize price savings, and achieve efficiencies, ushering in a new era of possibilities in crypto."
