PEAK6 is a leading investment firm headquartered in the historic Chicago Board of Trade building. More than 20 years ago, we were one of the first firms to develop sophisticated proprietary technology into our trading business. Today, we leverage our technical ingenuity and operational ability across a number of investment areas, spanning early- to mid-stage growth capital, operational control, trading, and even sports management. We have both built and operated several leading financial technology firms and today our team includes our proprietary trading business, a digital wealth clearinghouse, an outsource provider of flood insurance, a Premier League soccer team, a value investment arm, an incubation lab, and much more.
We’ve taken our passion for the markets and developed a unique trading experience designed specifically to introduce women to the trading industry. Our Trading Experience is designed to encourage smart, ambitious, collaborative women to break the mold. We’ve heard all the myths about trading—too cutthroat, too intense, too risky—but we know that’s not the case at PEAK6. We know investing in women is a solid strategy. Women can make outstanding traders, but there are not enough female traders in the field yet.
Our Trading Experience will introduce you to the basics of trading, help you see how empowering trading can be, and help you develop key skills that you’ll leverage throughout your career. You’ll have an opportunity to interact and collaborate with our traders on a daily basis, allowing you to experience first-hand the tight-knit, supportive, and highly collaborative team at PEAK6. Everyone is invested in each other’s and the team’s success.
