Providing clients with a professional service calls for a professional organisation. From the CEO and investment expert to the customer service assistant – everybody at LYNX has years of experience and advanced skills in his or her field.

The LYNX story

LYNX was founded in 2006. From that moment on we have developed into a sizeable European online broker. For this, we would like to give special thanks to all of the clients who have joined us over the years.


Foundation of LYNX

“Who is the best online broker to choose?”

As private investors, Jeroen Kramer and Rogier Groen asked themselves the same question in 2006. After an in-depth study they came to the conclusion that there was no Dutch provider able to offer the total package Jeroen and Rogier considered necessary to succeed in the stock market. There had to be a much better way. Therefore, they decided to open up the market for online investment, and founded LYNX on the 18th of August, 2006.
