MAKING MARKETS LIQUID

Derivative markets, mainly option markets, are by nature illiquid: when an investor wants to buy a specific option, there is very little chance another investor has the exact opposite idea on the same product at the same time.

Derivative markets require “market makers” who can provide counterparty to any investor’s request.

As a market maker on most European derivative exchanges, Mosaic Finance is committed to offer buy and sell prices on over 130 000 derivative instruments in real time.

Licensed in 2010, Mosaic is now Market Maker in Paris and Amsterdam (Euronext), London (ICE), Francfort (Eurex), Milan (IDEM), Madrid (MEFF), Stockholm and Helsinki (Nasdaq OMX) derivatives exchanges.

In 2015 Mosaic has traded over 10% of the total volume of single stock options on Euronext Paris.

WHO WE ARE

TECHNO PROP TRADING FIRM

Mosaic Finance is a regulated investment company approved by Banque de France in January 2010 (Interbank code 18973) strongly capitalized with an initial 12 000 000 euros share capital.

Our market making activity is performed for our own account and at our own risk: by contract with derivative exchanges we are committed to provide buy and sell orders using state of the art algorithms and quoting engines.

We are not a hedge fund, we have no customer, we do not advise investors. We have no opinion on the direction of the market.

Our profitability relies on our ability to value derivative instruments properly, our strict risk management, and the performance of our systems and models. At Mosaic, for each trader two people work on research and development.

HOW WE DO

HOW WE DO

Infrastructure & Software Development

In order to send our quotes to the “matching engines” of the electronic markets, we need to be connected to them, we need to be fast and we need to be smart.

Our IT team develops 100% of the sophisticated tools we use to capture market data from the exchanges, recompute derivative prices at any market move, and send them as fast as possible to update our quotes, or cover our risk by trading another instrument.

The infrastructure and software challenge is in microsecond and below: to be on top ot the race, Mosaic develops state of the art technology such as FPGA programming.

HOW WE DO

Quantitative Research & Data science

In order to offer the best prices as a market maker, we exploit in real time all publicly available information, structured and not structured.

We have developed a storage capacity of hundreds of terabytes, using the best “big data” technologies such as Hadoop and Elasticsearch.

Our researchers and data scientists exploit these data combining statistical approach and artificial intelligence, in particular reinforcement learning and automatic language processing: they innovate every day in order to find new protocoles and create the algorithms that directly implement the results of their research.
