Our Mission

Level the Playing Field

We are driven by the belief that financial markets work best when many diverse firms are engaged. And low latency telecom is critical infrastructure for these firms.

McKay Brothers was at the forefront of the evolution of low latency telecom from fiber to microwave, which resulted in a dramatic increase in speed. Our firm has a history and continued commitment to innovation and technical excellence.

McKay Brothers is solely a telecom service provider. We do not trade for our own account. We offer equal access to all subscribers for each of our services. And we provide incentives for small, growing firms. 

The core of our mission is to level the playing field by providing access to the fastest telecom to the financial markets.

Our Story:

Co-founders Bob Meade and Stéphane Tyč met as physics PhD candidates. Both enjoyed fruitful careers in fundamental research related to microwave engineering. Each later entered the financial services industry in roles directly related to electronic trading. Bob and Stéphane returned to their microwave roots in when they bootstrapped McKay Brothers. The company is private, independent and committed to providing equal access for all subscribers. McKay Brothers is not affiliated with any exchange or trading firm.
