Industry Leading Proprietary Trading Firm Sees Value in Hiring Specialists

Share Article

Kershner Trading, a leading proprietary trading and technology firm, is growing its business by hiring specialists away from the NYSE and AMEX.

Many of these specialists are the consummate traders

    In the last few months, Kershner has interviewed more than a dozen specialists, who are currently on the NYSE or AMEX, or who have been subjected to recent rounds of industry downsizing.

"Many of these specialists are the consummate traders," said Andy Kershner, CEO and founder of the company. "It just so happens that they want more control over their own destiny, a concept that is slowly slipping away from them on the floor. They want to be able to trade any stock that is moving and be able to use specialized technology to leverage their trading ideas and abilities."

Kershner Trading offers an ideal situation since the focus is on short-term proprietary trading, where traders can aggressively grow their career, according to Kershner.

"What makes Kershner different is that we are an integrated firm, where members trade the firm's capital and split profits with the firm," he says. "And yet there's also a team atmosphere, where profitable traders can share ideas and benefit from the team's overall success.

"Another important differentiator at Kershner is that we are a technology company. We have developed and maintained a trading platform that is second to none in the industry. We believe that large technological and operational investments are totally necessary to ensure that their traders are successful."
