Is there a single organised prop firm you can buy into in London left?

Just a quick one:

I'm aware there are desks in arcades etc going and they do great work at filling a niche, but is there a single "full" prop firm left that takes on self funded traders without any BS? I note a lot of the old firms who used to do so still operate, but they all seem to be clearing houses now, a la Marex.

Looking online there's a bunch of props wistfully looking for top tier grads for algo development (good luck with that), but I'm failing to see much in the way of old fashioned props where you could rock up with 50k and get a desk in EC.

Cheers

Fill_Or_Kill started this thread Thanks much for your time, but in what way do Xconnect and GHF offer a prop firm environment? I'm sure they would both happily help me set up a prop firm if I was that way inclined mind you as they've both moved into clearing and settlements like Marex!

TTG I heard weren't taking anybody new but I'll give them a call considering I'm decently funded. Could also try Met I suppose, but they're trying to set themselves up as the British Optiver, fair play. Savi I hear are still pushing scam training so won't be going there. What happened to Pyne? Their financials don't look too bad considering.

ABN Amro?? The huge Dutch bank?? "Excuse me lads, you got a FGBL feed in your many offices or what?"

I'm going to end up trading solo as usual aren't I.

Call all of them. They certainly used to offer desk space if you opened an account. Alternatively google coworking space in the area you are interested in getting a desk.

What instruments do you trade and how many RTs do you do every day?
