As a principal trading firm, DRW Trading Group (DRW) trades solely for its own account. Our trading spans a diverse set of asset classes and instruments, both domestically and internationally, including futures and options in fixed income, energy, agricultural and equity products.
DRW’s strategies and methods vary. For example, certain of our operations focus on liquidity provision, while others interact with the markets as liquidity takers. Furthermore, certain of our operations are heavily dependent on technology while others involve interactions with markets in more traditional ways. This has resulted in our business being diversified as to strategies, asset classes, instruments and geographical presence. DRW focuses on finding liquid, centrally-cleared instruments, thus eliminating the counterparty exposure associated with OTC/bilateral trading. DRW is an active participant on exchanges in the United States and Europe, including the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade, the New York Mercantile Exchange, the Intercontinental Exchange, Eurex, LIFFE and several other exchanges and trading venues.
Our trading strategies are often highly active and add significant amounts of liquidity to markets.
