New Options Trading Startup Gets Backing from Powerful Banks

A new startup that allows for ordinary people, with a focus on millennials, to trade options has received early backing from some of the top names in banking; Gatsby raised $500K from Radius Bank, Barclays, Techstars, former Goldman Sachs managing director Alex Wohl and more; the idea behind the firm is to take what firms like Stash and Robinhood have done to the next phase; “We thought Gatsby could be the app you use to take some risks and try to move the needle a bit in your portfolio rather than just getting access to the market,” explains Co-Founder Jeff Meyers to American Banker.
