Jenny Just

Co-founder and Managing Partner, PEAK6 Investments

In 1997, Jenny pitched a tech-forward business concept to her employer who declined. She left the security of that company to create PEAK6 Capital Management, a trading firm with a progressive use of technology. Her vision of the future of finance resulted in PEAK6 becoming a multi-billion-dollar firm that changed the trading industry. The PEAK6 journey includes the creation of Apex Fintech Solutions, which provides the technology powering the world's leading fintech companies driving digital investing and wealth management. Apex supported 60+ startups including Betterment, Robinhood, and Wealthfront, and currently its technology supports 18 million customers through brokers such as Sofi, Stash, and Webull. Via PEAK6’s Strategic Capital division, Jenny has invested in dozens of fintech companies including eToro, Moneylion, Robinhood, Stash, and Webull. These investments expanded the fintech ecosystem’s offerings to retail customers.
