Whether you are an established trader or someone looking to begin a career in trading you may ask: Why consider Infinium?

True Career Building
Trading can be a rewarding career, but is not for the weak-willed. Many traders can’t sustain long-term profitability, stress can be high, and the competition gets ever more sophisticated. Our training program focuses not on tricks but on the fundamentals of trading and risk/reward decisions in order to build adaptable long-term traders.
Investing in Traders, not Vice-versa Training traders has been at our core since day one. Trader education is not a separate business or profit center, it is integral to what we do. We have always and will always take risk on our trainees and view this as the only way to align incentives and build long-term trading relationships.
Commitment to Quality of Talent and Trading Floor
We are extremely selective in taking on new traders: experienced traders must have excellent track records and new traders must show outstanding potential to be considered for our training program. Our philosophy on building a trading floor is simple: trading talent begets trading talent. Compromising quality for short-term profit dilutes the floor and destroys morale.
