About Pragma

Our business is providing great financial trading algorithms, and your success is our success. We are not an executing broker, a proprietary trading shop, an exchange, or a dark pool.

When working with Pragma, banks, brokers, and asset managers enjoy a level of quality, control, and transparency that otherwise requires your own in-house algorithmic quant and trading technology teams for their financial trading algorithms. Working with Pragma allows our clients to focus their resources on their core business.

Because our business model does not conflict with our clients’, we create sustainable, value-added, long-term partnerships.

Our team of experienced technologists and finance professionals works every day to define a new standard in quality and service for our clients in delivering financial trading algorithms.

For recent graduates, Pragma is a great place to learn and be exposed to a range of activities and technologies. It has the excitement of a trading business, but in a culture that’s more like a tech startup than a bank.

For experienced professionals, it’s an opportunity to get away from politics and corporate blues, to a flat, open culture, an opportunity to be rejuvenated, to focus on results and building a business instead of navigating politics and egos of a big institution.
