Humility combined with decisiveness and purpose gives rise to leadership. Yet we never asked to be followed.
Our story simply inspires; attracting principled and talented individuals to our team. And there is no quit. Thalēs continues to exemplify the true meaning of the word driven. Leveraging both technology and the grit bestowed in a hand shake, we remain vigilant, committed to do our part to push the industry forward.

The early pre-Socratic philosopher and mathematician, Thalēs, observed one winter that the upcoming harvest would yield a large crop of olives. As a result, he raised a small sum of money and gave deposits for all the olive presses in Miletus and Chios, which he rented at a discount since there was no demand for them at this time. When it came time to harvest, there came a sudden need for the presses, and by renting them out on terms he preferred, Thalēs realized a large sum of money.
Technically, this was the first options trade made in human history. In recognition of the innovation, creativity, and financial acumen of Thalēs, we saw it fit to bear his name.
It can’t be just about
There has to be some good created from the lack of sleep, long hours, and nervous moments. And this pertains to every aspect of life, family, friends, and the less fortunate.
