About the Foundation

Our history

The Foundation was originally founded by a working partnership of Saen Options directors and the trading software company AtomPro over ten years ago, in cooperation with the Financial Engineering Lab of the University of Twente and New Trade (now Flow Traders).

The same founding Directors from 2000 now lead True Partner Capital, a trading company in Hong Kong and China mainland. Supporting the Foundation in its role and objectives, True Partner Capital provides logistical support, shared resources, and financial support.

Over the years the Foundation has organised many successful activities, including eight annual symposiums, sponsored research projects, sponsored a Chair in Financial Engineering at the University of Twente, and helped place numerous master's students in research internships.
