Execution-only services

Control your own portfolio and trade without advice

Trade directly on the financial markets, while still benefitting from expert research, real-time market information and trading ideas.

About our execution-only services

Ideally suited for experienced investors who don’t need advice, our execution-only services can help you strengthen your trading capability by providing you with the latest research and market information to inform your decisions. The value of investments can fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.

Complete control

You have complete control of your investments. You can execute simple trades with your Wealth Manager and trade a wide range of securities including bonds, equities and foreign exchange.

Stay connected

With our execution-only services, your Wealth Manager will make the trades for you via a range of brokers and liquidity pools, and provide you with access to expert research.

Trading support

You’ll get direct access to the world’s markets and your trades will be executed in line with your instructions. You’ll benefit from competitive market pricing and seamless settlement, whether you choose a ‘delivery versus payment’ or custody basis.

Things to consider

You must make your own investment decisions. We won’t provide you with personal advice with this service. You need to be aware of the risks and take advice if you’re unsure of an investment’s suitability for you.

Other ways to invest

Always remember that investments can fall in value. You may get back less than you invest.
