IMC Investments

Empowering next generation entrepreneurs

IMC Investments is our new venture capital arm. This collaborative initiative connects start-ups and scale-ups with our world-class expertise and financial backing to achieve long lasting value and success.

We're looking to partner with companies active in:

  • Trading of financial instruments with a focus on derivatives
  • Technology and infrastructure that enables trading and execution
  • Trading of digital assets

We especially want to hear from those who dare to imagine how things could be: the novel trading venues and fast network infrastructure providers. The traders of Decentralized Finance and derivatives. The specialists in quantum technology, DevOps, and cloud computing.

Our investment criteria

We’re looking for partners who aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo by disrupting the standard way of doing things. People who can demonstrate their commitment to their vision, and have a drive to build a successful future together.

The companies we invest in vary considerably in size and scope. A typical first investment for example can be anywhere between 500K and 10 million euro. Better still, we’re open to investing in relevant start-ups or scale-ups operating anywhere in the world.

‘Being here to stay’ is one of our core values, so if you have a bright idea and are ready for the long haul, we’d love to hear from you.

The IMC Story

Founded in 1989, IMC brings more than 30 years of financial market experience to the trading world. At the forefront of evolution, we’re proud to be one of the first firms to realize the potential of technology in a fast-evolving financial markets environment.

After starting life as two traders on the Amsterdam options exchange, today’s IMC uses advanced low-latency solutions to connect to over 90 different trading venues worldwide.

IMC Investments is a natural extension of our story. By leveraging our capital and expertise, we want to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs—the fellow innovators who share our core values, and who can look beyond the obvious to make things happen.

How we partner

We’re not here to micro-manage—it’s your company after all, so run it how you see fit. What your partnership with IMC brings is the full might of our in-house trading and technology expertise to help accelerate your business success. We can also provide liquidity on various platforms to put you ahead of the game.
