About Us

Some collaborations are just meant to be… ATS Trading Solutions represents the culmination of an extended partnership between two unlikely lads (Rich and Fred) who share a common vision. To share their long experience in system development, portfolio management and trading the financial markets to hopefully give you a leg up on your trading journey by:

Don’t get us wrong. Sustainable long term trading solutions are a tough ask to achieve as the financial markets progressively become more complex. What was sufficient in the past in delivering strong performance returns may no longer work today as market conditions dynamically change and remove current exploitable opportunities.

Quite simply, our mission is to give you the keys to success in this evolving market place. To make you dynamically adjust your expectations in response to the market and quite simply make you better traders.

We are science lovers who demand empirical evidence to demonstrate the efficacy of our trading solutions and our mission is to work tirelessly on informing you of the countless ways in a quantifiable manner to exploit current market conditions using time-tested robust systems that dynamically adjust in response to new emerging market conditions.

So if you have a penchant for sustainable risk-weighted returns….we want to hear from you….as that is our modus operandi.

More about Fred here…….

Fred and Richard became trading buddies after they met at a sordid trading meetup and now closely collaborate on projects.

The correct answer of course is that Richard is better looking.
