Our Business


For over 40 years, Interactive Brokers has been the pioneer of the electronic trading revolution. We rapidly scaled from a small U.S. options market-maker into a sizable global trading firm by leveraging the power of technology and automation.

Recognizing an opportunity to provide low-cost brokerage services to individuals and institutions seeking alternatives to high-priced firms, we opened our vast intercontinental electronic network and trade execution services to clients. Today, with nearly half a million clients, we facilitate more trades than any other online broker.*

Since inception, we have been committed to delivering value through technological innovation, and providing our clients with unprecedented access to global markets at the lowest cost.
