About Us

McKay Brothers has assembled a team with extensive qualifications to build the lowest latency network.

Together, team members have a combined experience of roughly:

  • a decade of research in Physics (at Harvard and MIT)
  • three decades of experience in Derivatives Research & Trading
  • a dozen years in High Frequency Trading
  • two decades in wireless network implementation, including 4 year in USMC combat communications
  • six decades of business building and management

The McKay approach combines an intimate knowledge of the needs of low latency trading with a deep understanding of the physics of wireless communication.
