About the Needham Equity Options Sales & Trading Desk

Needham & Company’s Equity Options Sales and Trading Desk was created in April 2010 to enhance the securities trading capabilities for Needham’s corporate clients. At Needham and Company, LLC we recognize the need for customers to hedge and to leverage their portfolios through options. The recent growth in options volume across the street is remarkable and undeniable. Managing volatility has become the utmost priority for many of our customers.

Our team of veteran professionals with extensive sales/trading experience in the options markets works intimately with our senior research analysts to derive proprietary strategies. In turn, we work hand in hand with portfolio managers, analysts and traders to devise strategies that maximize their risk reward. Our access to ‘hard to find’ liquidity sources enables us to provide superior pricing and depth of market. 

We also realize the need to educate our client base on all facets of option pricing and volatility. We believe that a deep understanding is vital to our customer’s success in trading options. Our team has expertise in every listed options strategy including, but not limited to, hard to borrow names, conversions, reversals, rolls, boxes, condors, flex trades, dividend spreads, synthetics, risk reversals, early exercise risk and butterflies.
