Company History

Founded in 2000 by former SIMEX floor trader Henky Toha, HNK Alpha is one of Singapore’s pioneer proprietary trading firms. Over the years, HNK Alpha has evolved to become one of the early adopters of electronic trading. Embracing the increased market accessibility, our portfolio expanded to wider geographic and asset class coverage. HNK Alpha’s strong emphasis on risk management enabled the firm to weather multiple crises (such as the Dot-com bubble, 9/11 in 2001, the subprime financial meltdown in 2007, Eurozone sovereign debt crisis in 2009, and the Chinese stock market crash in 2015) and expand to cover even more products across multiple asset classes.
