Our Culture & Core Values
Infinium thrives on it's fun and entrepreneurial culture and flat leadership structure.
Performance drives everything and the sky’s the limit for the top performers who can work in an ultra-competitive environment. Because we don’t have customers, our traders focus solely on generating new trading strategies and optimizing existing ones to increase the firm’s profits and are only held accountable to the partners in the firm.
Our team likes to work hard, be successful at what they do and have fun:
What sets us apart from other others is that adding value is based on the work you do and your performance and not your ability to climb the corporate political ladder. We have no products, clients, or customers. Everyone is here because they love the work, those they work with, and have a passion for markets. Our people are hired for their talents and recognized for their contributions in building a trading company.
