Zomojo is an Australian financial markets trading and technology company established
in 2005. The firm is privately owned, with employees accounting for a
significant majority of its ownership structure. The company develops
software and hardware for trading on electronic
markets. Zomojo uses this
technology for its own trading, and also markets this technology to
other clients. Zomojo is primarily active in the Asia-Pacific
region but does not trade on any Australian markets.
Zomojo’s trading styles are very latency sensitive. In order to stay
competitive the firm invests considerable resources into the
development of novel software and hardware technologies.
This has led the firm to accumulate significant expertise in low-latency
network technology in a range of forms, including custom hardware. In
2008 the firm demonstrated a prototype exchange matching engine with
single-digit microsecond latency. Low-latency gateways with pre-trade
risk checking have also been developed for various markets.
Zomojo employs an elite team of scientists, engineers and developers, many
with higher degrees and PhDs. Chief technology
officer Dr Matthew
manages the firms' continuing investment in research and development.
The two (executive) directors of Zomojo, Ian
, and Dr
have extensive backgrounds in finance.
Their collective experience
encompasses funds management, proprietary trading, operations,
stockbroking, algorithmic trading, pre-trade risk, matching technology
as well as the management of several entities with Australian
financial securities licenses.
