about us

We believe in do-it-yourself investing. We think controlling your own money can be more rewarding than relying on money managers or robo-advisors who put your portfolio on autopilot.

That’s why tastyworks gives you every edge possible with the technology, rates, and support that help you succeed more easily on your own. And our affiliate network tastytrade shows you how we trade our own money and helps you learn how to do it yourself. We’re as serious about your money as you are, and we work for you who are brave enough to take your finances into your own hands.

We’ve always done what others won’t even try and gone where no other trading firms would go before.

We’re tough, and we’re ridiculously transparent in a way you just don’t see in the financial industry.

what we've done

We traded at the Chicago Board Options Exchange

We were forged in the fires of physical floor trading. In the pit we learned how to be smart, creative, and resilient with finance. We quickly learned that we look at the market in a different way. Once we understood the value in leveraging options to sell premium, we needed a new space that would allow us to trade more boldly and efficiently.

We helped pioneer options trading technology for the retail trader

There was no brokerage or software to help us trade how we knew we could. So we built a firm with the services we needed and a platform with the features we wanted to do it our way. We even traveled the world to share our success and to show people of all types that they could trade like us and win at it. After being made an attractive offer to sell the brokerage firm, there was much contemplation about the decision. Ultimately, it was an offer we couldn’t refuse. After all, we’re traders...

We formed tastytrade to change the conversation about finance

After selling our first brokerage firm, we wanted to keep helping retail traders realize their potential for success. Our customers made it clear that there was nowhere to go if they wanted sharp, fun, and actionable financial content. We launched tastytrade, the first live network for active retail options traders. It is now an irreplaceable resource for both experienced and new do-it-yourself traders. Our market research evolved, our trading style evolved, and our tools evolved too. We also created a new kind of intuitive, visual platform that gives power traders a way to analyze the market in interesting ways and offers new traders a clearer road to success.

Now we're building a new kind of brokerage for you, the active trader

The market can be a rough and random road to travel. Your brokerage is the last thing that should get in your way. We believe the firm itself is a crucial factor in your success. Our platform gives you the technology, tastytrade gives you the know-how, and now our business structure gives you the environment you need to maximize profits and reward yourself more deeply than you ever thought possible.
