In 2013 Optiver saw an opportunity to extend our reach into new markets. Naturally, we had to explore it. A small team made up of Optiverians from all regions worked together to build something great in Shanghai.

    The vision of Optiver Shanghai is to become a long-term trusted partner to Chinese exchanges, providing competitive pricing and ultimately achieving the mutually-beneficial goal of improving the market.

    We are very proud to have been voted one of Asia’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces in the 2015 BRW Best Places to Work survey.


    Like all Optiver offices around the world, we nurture a collaborative and open culture. The foundations of Optiver Shanghai are like no other: A start-up company with 30 years of experience backing us up. Everyone who joins us will help to shape the future of our company and our culture. We offer advanced learning and growth opportunities to set you up to make a real difference to Optiver.

Shanghai Quote

“Fast-paced, exhilarating working environment in the dynamic and rapidly evolving markets of China.”

“New Shanghai offices are quite literally one of the nicest working environments on offer in Shanghai.”


Shanghai is a lively city that is rich in history, architectural grandeur and cultural diversity with over 23 million residents. Shanghai is the most developed district in China and it has become the undisputed financial capital. The city life is fast-paced and supports a culture of work hard, play hard. A life experience not to be missed.

Optiver Shanghai is located in the financial hub of Pudong New District, close to Century park, within 5 mins walk from two major metro stations and 40 minutes to the airport by high speed train.
