FIND YOUR EDGE

Our competitive edge comes in many forms; we often refer to it as our desire to be market leading. It’s not at all costs, our values hold true in all our interactions (unless it is to become the Maven table tennis champion, then it is at all costs). At Maven, you’re encouraged to push the boundaries, experiment with the new or take that non-consensus view. In doing so we might just achieve something remarkable, something market leading.

We’re only as strong as the sum of all parts, and Maven’s real edge is the community and culture we have grown amongst our employees. We look out for each other, support creativity and innovation, and share our challenges as a team.

On joining our community, we work with you to really understand how we can help you succeed. We’ll aim to give you access to the latest technology and equipment you need. We like to think of ourselves as much a Tech firm as we are a Trading firm. We aim to keep you challenged and motivated, taking your direction as your interests change.

We’re very fortunate to be able to offer our employees plenty of opportunities but we don’t want to stop there. We’re working to make a change in our wider community and make sure opportunity isn’t restricted to the few. Visit our blog to see our current charitable initiatives.
