This is what creates the collaborative and high-performance environment we work in. Though we're spread across three continents, we’re one global team working towards a common goal.

Why the name: By definition, to have a stake in something is to be a part of it. To own it. To claim it. Our name stands for those who want to stake their claim to the future.
Why did the business start? We created Stake to give everyday investors access to financial opportunities previously only held for the big players. Today we continue to break barriers to global investment opportunities for the new generation by combining a sophisticated user experience with a passion for the markets.
