The Broker’s role in financial markets

The broker is a completely independent player in over-the-counter (OTC) financial and non financial markets. Its role primarily consists of providing a point of contact for institutional clients seeking to buy or sell financial or non financial products. Regulatory restraints require the broker to act as a pure intermediary, taking no positions or dealing risks in the financial markets. Working at the very heart of the markets, the broker is in continual contact with leading players in the major financial centers (banks, insurance companies, large private companies, etc.), enabling it a unique, comprehensive knowledge of financial markets. Its chief functions are therefore:
  • To ensure market liquidity and respond rapidly to its clients' needs,
  • To respect the confidential nature of its clients' transactions.
Our expertise entails:
  • Perfect knowledge of financial markets,
  • A good understanding of its clients' needs and objectives,
  • Providing superior quality, high value added service.
  • Quick execution at the best market price
