Who Are We?

OptionsCity® is a financial technology company incepted in 2006 by three Chicago software professionals and friends who shared the same passion and vision for technology and options trading. Together, Hazem Dawani, Victor Glava, and Rudy Fasouliotis created a powerful, intuitive, and reliable product that would change the way traders conducted business. The founders brought their experience and drive from previous leading roles at a successful Chicago options trading company.

With a proven combination of software development expertise, a solid understanding of traders’ needs, and a great deal of passion, in August of 2007, OptionsCity produced Metro, an end-to-end electronic market making and trading platform. OptionsCity continued expanding its reach and acquiring clients. In September of 2011, OptionsCity shook up the market with the launch of Freeway, a multi-asset automated trading platform designed for deploying user-built algorithmic strategies. OptionsCity continues its mission to bring technological advancement and innovation to the financial industry. OptionsCity is a certified Independent Software Vendor on leading global derivative exchanges and markets.
