Who we are

WEBB Traders is a fast-growing, global proprietary trading firm, driven by data and technology. We act as a market maker, using our own capital to trade on global stock and derivatives exchanges. By leveraging a large network of interdealer brokers and the latest advancements in electronic trading technology, we add liquidity to the financial markets specialized in cash equity and derivatives.

Since our very first trade in 2009, WEBB’s headquarters have been based in Amsterdam, nowadays supported by a strong presence in Paris. With our 70 employees of over 25 different nationalities, we are united in our great ambition to grow WEBB into a global leader in arbitrage and liquidity.

If the above sounds like algebra to you, you may just call us a fintech company.
