Flow Traders

Since 2004, Flow Traders has been a principal trading firm and one of the world’s largest liquidity providers, specialized in Exchange Traded Products (ETPs). Throughout the years, Flow Traders has received the industry’s recognition, winning numerous awards. The firm stays ahead of the competition by focusing on technology and niche competencies in markets where every second counts. This requires access to the best information and the ability to respond instantly. To achieve this, Flow Traders develops its own software in-house. This is used in partnership with experienced traders to identify and execute tomorrow’s strategies, making them a daily pioneer in professional trading. We are proud to welcome this highly recognized firm as a sponsor of our yearly Trader’s Cup.

The Economist

The Economist offers precious insights and opinions on international news, politics, business, finance, science, and technology. Founded in 1843 to support the cause of free trade, The Economist is one of the world’s most authoritative and influential publications. Moreover, their ability to judge fairly throughout diverse contexts, without partiality or external influence gives them their highly recognized neutrality and objectivity. This ensures a continuity of tradition and consistency of view which few other publications can match. Thanks to the partnership that the Economist provides to the IFSA Trader’s cup, the winners will be awarded with a subscription to the famous editorial.
