It all started when two gentleman had a beer…
Most of us at Digital Vega are veterans of the finance industry. Between us we have been involved in building more ECNs and bank ecommerce platforms than we care to remember. Whilst at the time all of these endeavours were hugely exciting, in many cases pioneering, initial aspirations often gave way to serve the interests of one group over the rest. We are convinced that is possible to do great work to the equal benefit of all of our clients, partner banks, investors and employees. Quite simply we are determined to do it right!
Digital Vega is a privately held and independent company operating the pioneering Medusa FX Options trading platform. Our client driven focus and unparalleled liquidity has made us a market leader in the OTC FX Options marketplace.
As more OTC and derivatives markets migrate to electronic trading models, driven either by regulations or client demand, we will be at the forefront of those new developments. We will continue to add new financial products and support new asset classes and bring new market innovations to our award winning platform.
Our Values haven’t changed…
Live for change – Our industry is going through continuous change. At Digital Vega not only do we enthusiastically embrace change, we endeavour to drive it. If we thought tomorrow was going to be like yesterday we would probably go do something else.
Great isn’t good enough – We firmly believe that we should only do something if we can do it really well. So whilst we are constantly adding new functionality, we are obsessed with the smallest details. Details which we believe will ultimately, make all the difference. If we can make our customers really happy everything else will follow.
Passion and determination – We are deeply passionate about what we do. Building a global derivatives trading venue from scratch wasn’t easy. If it was, everyone could do it. We do it because we want to make a difference and are determined to succeed where others have fallen by the wayside.
Simple is best – Whilst we may not always succeed, we are always trying to invent better and simpler ways of doing difficult or repetitive tasks. We are hugely influenced by the simple elegance of Apple products. Whenever well develop something new, we ask repeatedly ‘can we make it simpler?’ It’s the benchmark we set ourselves!
