Our mission

We help retail investors find smarter ways to trade, fast.

John Foley, Alex Griffiths and CC Lagator launched Options AI with a mission of giving retail investors simple access to the same strategies used by institutional investors – and in the process, to revolutionize how a modern brokerage platform can look.

Having founded and built an institutional brokerage business over the previous 10 years, John Foley saw a clear disparity between the types of option strategies used by professional traders and those being used by a rapidly growing number of retail investors looking to add options to their toolkit. 

So, together with CC Lagator, an experienced options market maker and retail educator and Alex Griffths, a serial entrepreneur and business operator, John and the Options AI team set about designing a platform to cut through the complexity and chains and bring the options trading experience out of the dark ages.

While others focused on democratizing access to basic trading, the Options AI team set about simplifying access to more advanced strategies that can help reduce capital at risk, improve probability of profit or generate income – to truly level the playing field for everyday investors.

The Options AI solution is a uniquely visual platform with a patented approach to help traders find smarter ways to trade, fast. Setup and compare strategies in seconds using the expected move or customize spreads by dragging and dropping zones on a chart. Then watch the trade play out on a real time stock chart for smarter trade management.

Whatever your personal trading goals, at Options AI, our goal is to help you unlock the smartest way to trade while knowing exactly what’s at risk. That’s why we focus only on defined risk strategies and back it up with expert options support. All combined with a simple flat $5 commission that gives you the freedom to trade the strategy and size that’s right for you.
