PEAK6 Capital Management

PEAK6 Capital Management LLC is a proprietary trading (e.g., prop trading) business and was the first business to be launched in PEAK6.   As a prop trading firm, our goal is to generate returns on our own capital (we don’t trade external capital).

Our Capital Management business specializes in equity derivatives trading and became one of the first firms to develop electronic proprietary technology, which more efficiently manages risk in the options market.

Our disciplined focus on risk management, and technology, has helped us achieve significant success in managing risk, providing liquidity, and making markets. We have a proven track record of success, providing significant liquidity throughout U.S. financial markets.

PEAK6 Capital Management is currently located in Chicago, with offices in the Board of Trade.


Launched in 2006, OptionsHouse was created with the vision of delivering a compelling combination of value and technology direct to the active, online trader.

OptionsHouse leveraged the insights from the technology-driven approach that originally made PEAK6 successful, and translated that into a successful, direct-to-consumer business.

The result is a top-rated, online brokerage that has won multiple Barron’s awards. OptionsHouse offers professional-level tools, innovative technology and fast execution—all at incredibly competitive prices. We’re committed to providing active traders with the rates and tools they need to gain a competitive edge in the market.

OptionsHouse currently has offices in Chicago and Seattle.
