Mission & Origins

Years working in a foreign exchange brokerage taught our founder, Adam, firsthand about the barriers smaller institutions face in the FX market. To compete in a system built for larger players, they had to piece together rigid, enterprise stand-alone software, build everything themselves from scratch, or make do with emails, spreadsheets and grit.

Believing that capital markets should encourage as much competition and innovation as possible, Adam founded Kooltra in 2014 with a vision of building technology to democratize capital markets.
