SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Maverick Trading (www.mavericktrading.com) is proud to announce that Acquisition International Magazine (AI) (www.acquisition-intl.com) has named Maverick Trading as the Best Proprietary Trading firm in the United States. Maverick Trading was founded in 1997 and started as a small, locally-based proprietary trading firm and while the majority of its traders are US-based, the firm now counts traders on six continents in both its Options and FX Divisions.
Maverick Trading CEO, Robb Reinhold, accepted the honor on behalf of the firm. "We are truly honored that a publication with the international reach and reputation of Acquisition International saw fit to recognize Maverick Trading. Considering the number of quality proprietary trading firms in the industry, we are privileged to receive this award."
Maverick's COO, Jon Frohlich, weighed in with his thoughts on what puts Maverick Trading over the top. "Developing a firm of successful traders seems easy on paper: you need to provide them the education and framework to treat trading as a profession, provide ongoing support once they are trading in the markets, and back them with increasing amounts of capital as they prove themselves. The details are where we make it work. We're constantly updating our curriculum, coordinating with our coaching staff, and listening to input from our support staff to ensure our traders are operating in the best structure possible, both on the Options side and the FX side."
In a firm-wide e-mail to Maverick's staff and traders, Reinhold took a moment to congratulate the efforts of all members of the firm: "A large part of the credit in winning this award goes directly to Maverick's traders. You are where the rubber meets the road. Your efforts, collectively, have contributed to Maverick Trading being named Best Proprietary Trading Firm in the USA."
When asked about Maverick's future plans, Frohlich commented: "We continue to produce great traders who consistently outperform the markets. The firm has more than enough capital to double our number of traders. We're going to continually seek out those people who are committed to trading professionally, train them properly, and support them to the greatest extent possible."
