About Flyer

About Flyer

Flyer is leading the trading technology space by giving you the freedom to control trading tools, connectivity, and infrastructure for your firm. Flyer automates the trade lifecycle with Co-Pilot and Flyer Trading Network. The platform unifies access to major custodians and brokers while providing intelligent Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) and Application Programming Interface.

Leadership Team

10 years ago, Flyer assembled a team of experienced Wall Street executives who had spent their careers building world-class electronic trading systems and infrastructure. They held roles across the front, middle and back office at some of the most innovative market participants on the planet including Blackrock, JPMorgan, NYSE Technologies and Bloomberg.

It didn’t take long for many of the most respected hedge funds, exchanges and broker dealers on the Street to come to Flyer for FIX connectivity, testing, certification, gateway access and simulation. At the same time, WealthTech was exploding and many of the leading tech providers sought Flyer’s Saas-based trading infrastructure and APIs to power their trading platforms. Today the team has ballooned to over 100 employees worldwide who work tirelessly to ensure clients are trading on the fastest, safest and cloud-based trading infrastructure in the world.

Together they brought diverse perspectives on how to architect and manage interoperable software solutions that help market participants scale their trading operations.
