Da Vinci Derivatives

Da Vinci is a privately-funded company that is owned and managed by professionals who have set high standards around trading, technology and company culture.

Our Story

Da Vinci is the brainchild of David, Vidit anJiteshu. After a long career in trading, they decided to start on their own. Founded in 2015, Da Vinci is focused on trading derivatives on multiple exchanges across the globe. The company is based in Amsterdam as it has historically been a central place for trading, with the world’s first stock market established here in 1602 and the European Options Exchange in 1978. Also many electronic trading companies have their base in Amsterdam, which creates a perfect infrastructure and workforce availabilities. In the near future we are looking to open new offices to facilitate further growth in Asia and the US.

 

Our Vision

We aim to create the best proprietary trading house in the world. We like to work with smart, talented and passionate people from all around the world. Our philosophy towards work is best captured by the saying:

“Be good, work hard and
great things will happen”

 

Our Business

Da Vinci identifies and trades opportunities in financial derivatives based on in-house developed strategies with a short to medium term horizon focused on volatility. This can mean that multiple products are traded against each other based on correlations but also that long (short) positions in under- or overpriced volatilities are taken across asset classes.

By arbitraging and market making these differences Da Vinci helps markets to become more efficient providing benefits to end investors. The instruments traded include, but are not limited to:

  • options and futures on single stock equities
  • index and fixed income futures and options
  • options and futures on volatility indices and dividends

Da Vinci trades solely with its own money creating natural risk awareness and does not have any customers.

 

Our Company

Over the past couple of years Da Vinci has been growing successfully and will continue to do so. This growth is largely due to the experience within the company and the ability to attract the most talented people in the industry, train them, provide them with all the required tools, continuously challenge them and thus allowing them to grow both professionally and personally. Our business is highly innovative, IT driven and entrepreneurial by nature. As a company we strongly feel that attracting the best requires providing the best.
