Making Markets. Making a Difference.


IMC is a market maker and one of the world’s leading trading firms. We are mathematicians, makers, and mavens. Traders, technologists, and tacticians. We think globally, commit locally, solve problems methodically and give back seriously. Being smart gets you in the door. Continuously striving for improvement and a restless curiosity will help you succeed.




Being a market maker means being ready to buy or sell securities at any time, facilitating the transfer of risk for market participants. Our highly-automated systems and trading strategies ensure tighter ‘spreads’ between bid and offer prices, reducing costs for buyers and sellers. Solving complex problems and learning constantly, we’ve played our part in making financial markets more efficient for almost 30 years.




We work better when we work together. Of course, with more than 500 people from many cultures and nationalities, working across time zones and locations, teamwork can be its own complex challenge. Good thing we like complex challenges!


The solution: an open, diverse culture built on trust, integrity, and the exchange of knowledge and ideas. And a team of driven, dynamic people empowered to be creative, to communicate openly, and to collaborate. Across offices in Amsterdam, Sydney and Chicago, we encourage our people to learn, improve and innovate, and give them all the support they need to do so.

Da Vinci Derivatives

Our Story

Da Vinci is the brainchild of David, Vidit anJiteshu. After a long career in trading, they decided to start on their own. Founded in 2015, Da Vinci is focused on trading derivatives on multiple exchanges across the globe. The company is based in Amsterdam as it has historically been a central place for trading, with the world’s first stock market established here in 1602 and the European Options Exchange in 1978. Also many electronic trading companies have their base in Amsterdam, which creates a perfect infrastructure and workforce availabilities. In the near future we are looking to open new offices to facilitate further growth in Asia and the US.

Our Vision

We aim to create the best proprietary trading house in the world. We like to work with smart, talented and passionate people from all around the world. Our philosophy towards work is best captured by the saying:

“Be good, work hard and
great things will happen”

Our Business

Da Vinci identifies and trades opportunities in financial derivatives based on in-house developed strategies with a short to medium term horizon focused on volatility. This can mean that multiple products are traded against each other based on correlations but also that long (short) positions in under- or overpriced volatilities are taken across asset classes.

By arbitraging and market making these differences Da Vinci helps markets to become more efficient providing benefits to end investors. The instruments traded include, but are not limited to:

  • options and futures on single stock equities
  • index and fixed income futures and options
  • options and futures on volatility indices and dividends

Da Vinci trades solely with its own money creating natural risk awareness and does not have any customers.

Our Company

Over the past couple of years Da Vinci has been growing successfully and will continue to do so. This growth is largely due to the experience within the company and the ability to attract the most talented people in the industry, train them, provide them with all the required tools, continuously challenge them and thus allowing them to grow both professionally and personally. Our business is highly innovative, IT driven and entrepreneurial by nature. As a company we strongly feel that attracting the best requires providing the best.

The Swiss-based Allseas Group S.A, founded in 1985 and headed by Edward Heerema, is a world-leading contractor in offshore pipeline installation, heavy lift and subsea construction. Dynamism, inventiveness, rapid progress and a no-nonsense attitude are the hallmark of Allseas.


To stay ahead of the industry, we are developing tomorrow’s technology today, transforming bold ideas into state-of-the-art solutions to meet the market’s ever changing needs. Worldwide we have executed more than 290 projects and installed over 21,500 km of subsea pipeline, operating a fleet of specialised heavy lift, pipelay and support vessels designed in-house.


Our record-breaking heavy lift and pipelay vessel “Pioneering Spirit” marks a technical breakthrough in installation and clean and safe removal of oil and gas platforms. Equipped with unique motion compensation and single-lift technology, she is a game-changer, boasting lifting and pipelaying capabilities unrivalled anywhere in the offshore industry.


“Pioneering Spirit” redefined heavy lifting with the single-lift removal of Shell’s 24,000 t Brent Delta topsides in 2017. Installation of Equinor’s 22,000 t drilling platform topsides earlier this year was the heaviest and fastest platform installation ever executed. Also built to lay record-weight pipelines in all water depths, “Pioneering Spirit” is now installing 32-inch pipe in the Black Sea at depths of 2200 m. Never before has such big pipe been laid at such great depth.


Are you ready to take the next step?

We are looking for ambitious, creative engineers with a can-do attitude to strengthen our 200-strong Innovations Department. Spread across several locations in the Netherlands, this multi-disciplinary team is responsible for the design, development, testing and integration of complex, cutting-edge systems and equipment that enhance the technical capabilities of the Allseas’ fleet.


The possibilities at Allseas are endless. From designing the biggest construction vessel in the world, to developing fully autonomous pipe transfer cranes, to simulating welding equipment in virtual reality, we want quality-driven team players looking to test and advance their skillset in a dynamic and challenging environment.


Our engineers are involved in the complete product development cycle: from the experimental (failure is an option) proof-of-concept phase, up-to the offshore (failure is no option) commissioning phase on-board one of our vessels.


If you have a healthy sense of adventure, a creative mind, and you are not afraid to step into a helicopter to test your latest creation on-board one of our vessels, then we can offer a wide range of career opportunities across a variety of disciplines.


Do you trust your own vision and have the courage to pursue it? Then join the thinkers, leaders and visionaries at Allseas! Are you ready to take the next step?

Actuarieel Instituut

Altijd al iets leuks willen doen?

Het best bewaarde geheim in Nederland is toch wel dat het beroep van actuaris de afgelopen vijf jaar op nummer 1 staat van het ‘beste banen onderzoek’, dat Elsevier ieder jaar in samenwerking met SEO Economisch Onderzoek uitvoert. Uit dit onderzoek blijkt dat het beroep van actuaris het hoogste scoort op alle facetten waaraan een topbaan voor starters (HBO en WO) moet voldoen. Ben jij handig met cijfers, goed in wiskunde en heb je een economische interesse, dan is een toekomst als actuarieel professional een hele interessante optie voor jou!

Creatieve probleemoplossers

Actuariële professionals, grofweg te verdelen in actuarieel rekenaars, actuarieel analisten en actuarissen, zijn werkzaam in de financiële sector en dan met name bij pensioenfondsen, verzekeraars, toezichthouders en adviesbureaus. Ze houden zich met name bezig met het berekenen van risico’s en wat de consequenties van deze risico’s financieel inhouden. Wat zijn de gevolgen van het feit dat in Nederland een dubbele vergrijzing plaatsvindt? En, hoeveel extra voorziening moet een pensioenfonds aanhouden wanneer de levensverwachting weer toeneemt en hoe gaan we dat financieren wanneer de rente laag staat? Allemaal vraagstukken waar veel aan moet worden gerekend, maar waar ook juist het communicatieve aspect niet mag worden onderschat. Actuariële professionals zijn in essentie creatieve probleemoplossers.

Profi-leren in een veranderende omgeving

Het Actuarieel Instituut (AI) biedt de mogelijkheid om naast het werk te kunnen studeren, via modulair opgebouwd beroepsonderwijs en dat op allerlei niveaus. De diverse actuariële opleidingen zijn zodanig vormgegeven dat je kunt spreken van een doorlopende leerlijn. Met andere woorden, je kunt losse modules volgen, maar je kunt ook de gehele opleiding volgen om eventueel af te sluiten met de Executive Master of Actuarial Science (EMAS).

Vernieuwen is meebewegen met de omgeving

De behoefte aan actuarieel geschoolden zal naar verwachting de komende jaren hoog blijven. Dat de wereld verandert weten we en dat we daarop moeten inspelen is een gegeven. Voor het AI betekent verandering continu bezig zijn met aanpassing en vernieuwing van het onderwijs dat wij aanbieden. Vernieuwing is noodzakelijk omdat het werkveld van actuariële professionals continue verandert en moet je als professional bereidt zijn een leven lang te willen leren.
