Swanson Talks About Expanding Opportunities in Recent Years

JLN interviewed Erik Swanson, the CEO of Simplex Trading, at the 2022 OIC conference in San Antonio, Texas. This is the last video in our JLN Industry Leader video series from the conference. 

JLN asked Swanson how he identifies opportunities. He spoke about the team he has that looks for trading opportunities and about how he looks for larger strategic opportunities for the firm. One of those opportunities was an investment in Matrix Executions that gave Simplex a wholesale options business. 

In recent years, Simplex has also added a Eurodollar options market making operation. 

We asked him about the opportunity with Matrix Executions and about how Simplex manages and retains employees. 

Lastly, JLN asked Swanson what changes he was expecting from the SEC.
