Chimera is an ideal firm with which to launch or further develop a long-term trading career.  Our founders, all former traders, started the firm with the belief that if you focus first on the profitability of traders, everything else will follow. 

The result is a collaborative, entrepreneurial environment where autonomy and collaboration co-exist.  While each trader is ultimately responsible for their own success, there is an unmistakable team spirit on the trading floor.


More About Our Culture

Open Doors:  Our founders are still 100% involved in the day-to-day operations of the firm and are accessible to everyone.  This culture of openness permeates throughout the firm and trading floors.

Trust & Accountability:  We pride ourselves in operating with the utmost integrity.  We view each trader relationship as a long-term partnership where each side is accountable for results.

Constant Improvement:  Recognizing that the market is extremely competitive and unforgiving, Chimera aims to build an environment where traders and the firm are never content to sit still.

Giving:  We strongly believe in giving back to the NYC community that helps our firm thrive.  We organize frequent fundraisers and contribute as volunteers to causes such as NY Cares, Coalition for the Homeless, and Poker4Life.

Fun:  We believe in being a serious firm but without taking ourselves too seriously.  We provide plenty of outlets to counter the intensity of trading and to encourage traders and staff to build bonds outside the office.
