Archr is a fully independent rates-focused broker. It was founded in April 2012 originally as Aviate Futures.
With the demise of MF Global at the height of the European crisis in 2011, Ashley Joye, together with other desk heads, decided to differentiate from the vanilla offerings of the big brokerages, and create a truly independent, idea and execution driven broker. Since then, we have dedicated ourselves to navigating markets with our Institutional customers to achieve Alpha returns.
After three wonderful years as a standalone but regulated business within Aviate Global, we had grown to a sufficient size to become fully independent, and Archr was formed.
The Archr team averages over 20 years market experience; our entrepreneurism, professionalism and reputation combine to produce a bespoke broking service that adds tangible value to Institutional client portfolios. We have maintained our expertise as an exchange fixed income broker, aligned with our clients’ interests and are option volatility specialists on exchange traded interest rates and bonds.
Each of the founding partners ran their respective desks at MF Global and all have deep backgrounds in futures and options.
Archr provide “best execution”, through the vast, pooled experience of the team alongside industry-leading trading technology.
Our network, flow and technical analysis identifies market trends and positioning intelligence. This translates into relevant market commentary and bespoke high-conviction trade ideas for clients at the sharp end of responsibility for trading performance at top-tier banks, asset managers and hedge funds.
