Arcanum Asset Management is a specialist options trading asset management company. The original business was founded by Paul Gleeson in 1997 with the aim of developing option trading strategies based on statistical market analysis. It grew to manage significant assets using these strategies before being sold in 2006. Mr Gleeson continued to manage his own funds and that of ‘friends and family’ while refining the same strategies. AAM received its FCA authorisation in July 2013 and was set up to allow other professional investors to participate in the Equity Index Option Programme.

Paul Gleeson started his career in futures and options more than 25 years ago trading on the London Metal Exchange. From there he held senior positions with a number of UK and International banks and brokerage companies before founding his own fund management business in 1997.

Ben Few Brown started his City career as a meat trader in London's Smithfield market. He joined Inter Commodities Ltd (soon to become GNI Ltd) in 1984 as a commodity broker. He became a full board member of GNI Ltd in the early '90's. GNI Ltd was acquired by Man Financial Ltd in 2002 (floated on the NYSE in 2007 as MF Global Ltd). Ben left MF Global Ltd in Jan 2011 and joined ADM Investor Services Ltd as 'Head of Institutional Sales'.
