Chimera Securities


Overall Ranking (80%)

The Overall Ranking is a score from 1 star (very bad) to 5 stars (excellent) generated based on the Company Reviews of current and former employees at this company, taking everything into account.

The number you see in the middle of the donut pie chart is the simple average of these scores. If you hover over the various sections of the donut, you will see the % breakdown of each score given.

The percentile score in the title is calculated across the entire Company Database and uses an adjusted score based on Bayesian Estimates (to account for companies that have few reviews). Simply put, as a company gets more reviews, the confidence of a "true score" increases so it is pulled closer to its simple average and away from the average of the entire dataset.

The Overall Ranking is generated based on the Company Reviews.

Company Details

Chimera Securities is a NYC-based broker-dealer specializing in discretionary and automated trading across multiple asset classes, including equities, options, futures, fx, and commodities.

We develop and support hundreds of professional traders and emerging fund managers through a sophisticated platform offering capital allocations, advanced technology, and robust infrastructure. We have expanded steadily since our launch in 2000, driven by a commitment to investment in the long-term success of our traders.

Chimera is a principal trading firm, meaning that we trade only the firm's capital and have no customers, clients or outside investors. We are registered as a broker-dealer with the SEC and overseen by the CBOE Stock Exchange (CBSX). We think this structure is ideal for entrepreneurial professional traders, as it offers autonomy, ownership (of trading earnings and IP), and the security of regulatory oversight.

We are headquartered in the Union Square neighborhood of New York City, where we feature a modern 17,000 square foot trading floor. Chimera also has offices in Boston, Chicago, and Westchester and permits remote trading for experienced professionals.
