Our strategies span high frequency trading, market making, arbitrage trading and quantitative trading. We are active in stocks, options, futures, ETF’s, FX, crypto and more.
Ebon Bokody and his wife Jinah founded Exponential Trading (EXP) in March 2013. Ebon saw an opportunity to improve on his trading as an options market maker, and to challenge himself set up a trading company of his own.
At 17 years old he obtained the University Medal in his Bachelor of Business (Mathematical Finance) Honours degree. This love of mathematics transferred into a love of trading. With a background in computer programming, Ebon was able to build the initial automated trading systems within a few months and start trading from home through Interactive Brokers.
Despite having no prior trading experience, Jinah who was then studying to be a teacher, became EXP's first trainee trader and trusted Ebon enough to drop out of her career path to build EXP. Jinah's hard-working attitude and aptitude allowed her to become an exceptional trader, and in the first couple of years, she generated most of the revenue for the business.
In late 2014 Ebon started the search for a full-time Head of Development to improve the original in house trading systems. EXP was very fortunate to acquire Joseph Lee, an old friend and colleague as our Head of Sofware Development, he remains in that role til this day. Through Joseph's guidance, the development team has produced dozens of trading strategies, market connections and infrastructure solutions that have powered EXP to where it is today.
In 2015 Jinah stepped away from trading to focus on family life. Ebon became more focused on trading again, recruiting new trading members to the team while Joseph took the lead with software development. Ebon and Joseph continue to work very closely together today, driving things forward.
From the beginning EXP has been fortunate to acquire amazingly talented traders and developers who have become a part of our story and driven our success. EXP has tremendous breadth and talent in its team. We have carefully handpicked the best senior traders, graduate traders and developers in the market to join us on our journey.
