History & philosophy
20 years of excellence
IMC was founded in Amsterdam in 1989 with a philosophy that has led to two decades of growth.
At the core of that philosophy is a belief that we will only succeed by applying uncompromising levels of excellence and innovation to every aspect of thinking, planning, and execution.
Integral to this process has been the way in which we have embraced and pioneered the technology that has transformed the financial sector. For instance, we were one of the first to be on the trading floor of the Amsterdam stock exchange with a hand held computer terminal.
The subsequent migration from floor- to screen-trading in almost every market opened up new opportunities for IMC in algorithmic and quantitative trading. Today, everything we do is driven by the cutting-edge use of technology, much of it developed in-house.
All IMC locations work in dynamic, non-hierarchical structures, enabling employees to maximize their potential in a spirit of competitive collaboration. We observe high standards of compliance and risk management.
The result is a powerful blend of innovation, teamwork, and achievement.
The foundation for an additional 20 years of IMC success.
