Steven co-founded the Met Group in 2002 and is a Managing Partner. He oversees the operation of Met Traders, the proprietary trading arm of the Group, and in particular all its market making activities. As a start-up Steven’s trading strategies and the relationships he built with exchanges were central to its growth. In 2003 he set up Met Traders’ graduate training programme, which he continues to lead today. He is still an active trader, specialising in STIRS and energy products. Before the launch of the Met Group, Steven worked for the Kyte Group where he traded on the LIFFE floor from 1994 to 1999. When trading migrated to screens, Steven became one of the leading STIR traders and featured regularly in LIFFE’s highest global volumes tables. Steven has a BA in Economics from Manchester University.
