Our story begins

back in 2009

Having moved from Australia to Chicago, with Optiver, a high frequency trading firm, Stake’s founder, Matt quickly realised that the U.S. is where the opportunity was – the amount of money moving through Apple stock was more than twice the entire Australian stock market.

When Matt returned home and tried to open a U.S. trading account, he was blown away by how broken the process was – paper forms, excessive fees and poor execution.

So, as they say, Stake was born.
