Actant provides trading solutions for financial firms trading on the world’s major derivatives and stock exchanges. Actant delivers unique algorithmic programming flexibility and control to proprietary trading and market making firms, investment banks and hedge funds. Designed for both exchange members and non-members, Actant software is fully customisable and scalable to meet individual strategic, connectivity, deployment and integration needs.

Actant has been a pioneer in electronic, automated trading and market making since we built the world’s first electronic auto-quote engine in 1993 on SOFFEX and DTB (now Eurex).

We have since expanded to cover all major exchanges in EU and US and expanded our product portfolio to include ExStream, which brings our strength in low-latency, safe, and flexible trading automation to order driven trading.

Actant is a privately owned company with headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, and offices in London, UK and Philadelphia, US, as well as on-floor support in both the NYSE and CBOE options exchanges.
