A Letter From Our President

Dear Investor/ Trader,

No one is born a trader. When I first began in the trading arena, I was like any other novice trader: naive, lacking confidence and too emotional in my trading approach. Fortunately, under the guidance of several industry veterans, I learned vital lessons that shaped my career—lessons in smart risk management, coping with the volatility of the markets, and choosing the right technology to trade with. I ;want you to experience the same foundation with Optimus Futures as you grow as a trader.

My desire to start Optimus Futures was fueled by my passion to assist traders in a fair and objective fashion. No hidden agendas, no sales quotas; but rather simply providing truthful information that would allow traders to decide what is appropriate for them.

At Optimus Futures, we’re committed to developing relationships of trust and good faith with our clients. I have implemented an approach to provide you with systematic, disciplined and above all, objective guidelines focused solely on your personal needs and financial objectives.

Protecting your capital and making you a better trader is all we stand for.

As with any relationship, it’s important to get to know your trading partner. With that in mind, I’ve outlined some of the belief system that defines Optimus Futures core operation:

  • A “one-size-fits-all approach” does not work in the trading brokerage business. With this in mind, Optimus tailors its services to fit your unique capital, time availability, risk tolerance and market knowledge. Through a wide range of offerings such as Managed Futures, Online Futures and Commodity Trading, System Trading and Broker-Assisted Programs, we give you the freedom to participate in the futures markets whether actively or creatively.
  • It’s our obligation to empower you with the latest customer service and trading technologies. Whether it’s the ability to check your account statements, place trades quickly or have your questions answered in a timely manner, we have implemented the technology and tools to make you feel you are in line with the latest retail trading technologies.
  • Following a long process of due diligence, Optimus has leveraged cutting-edge technologies to save you time and optimize your trading experience. See our Customer Statements Portal, Customer Enquiries Portal and Online Trading Platforms page.
  • Variety may be the spice of life, but it's the essential element that allows boutique operations like Optimus Futures to compete with the big brokerage houses. They offer one platform, one data feed. Optimus Futures offers over 30 platforms and 6 data feeds.
  • Commissions are the lifeline of a brokerage, but commissions should be a result of helping clients and leading them to financial success—not a broker’s primary goal. Those of us who have been in the industry for many years share this philosophy.

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about how our team can assist you in every trading aspect.

Thank you for considering Optimus Futures, and I look forward to building a long-term and mutually advantageous partnership.

Matthew Zimberg,
