“We believe establishing a local presence in Paris will enable us to serve our clients better, expand our regional reach, and continue our rapid growth trajectory.”

Options Technology has announced the opening of its new Paris office which will serve as a hub for the company’s operations in European markets, as part of its expansion strategy.

From the Paris office, the firm will provide localized client support and strengthen relationships with key industry partners. The office is located in the city’s 8th Arrondissement.

To serve clients better, expand regional reach, and continue rapid growth

Danny Moore, President and CEO at Options, commented: “We are delighted to be opening our new office in Paris, which represents an exciting step forward for Options in Europe. We believe establishing a local presence in Paris will enable us to serve our clients better, expand our regional reach, and continue our rapid growth trajectory.

“We are equally excited to announce Emma Sharkey as the Paris office team lead. Her experience and dedication have been invaluable throughout this project and will enable our continued success, expansion of services, and team development in the region.”

The company has experienced significant growth in recent years, establishing a strong presence in Toronto, Chicago, and Auckland to complement its strong foothold in New York, London, Singapore, Tokyo, and Hong Kong.

Options deepens ties with Microsoft Azure

Options Technology is actively testing OpenAI for real-time market data analysis in Microsoft Azure in a move that is expected to offer clients unparalleled market insight and analysis. The testing and integration of OpenAI’s technology into Options Technology’s extensive global market data platform and backbone will continue throughout the coming months.

The firm has recently achieved the Microsoft Solutions Partner designation for Infrastructure. Such status differentiates partners with broad technical capabilities, a dedication to skilling and training, and a proven ability to successfully deliver solutions for customers in a specific Microsoft Cloud solution area.

This follows a change in the Microsoft Partner Program, consolidating its previous Gold Competencies to a smaller number of solution partner designations and a broader set of requirements for attainment. The Infrastructure Solutions Partner designation showcases expertise in helping customers accelerate the migration of key infrastructure workloads to Microsoft Azure, architecting cloud environments and managing these environments at scale.

The provider of cloud-enabled managed services to the global capital markets has recently partnered with KX and deployed OPRA in Frankfurt FR2.
