First class execution

At ASW Trading & Sales, we place a strong emphasis on providing a personalised service, with impartiality, independence and discretion aforethought.  Covering a full range of asset classes, and with a strong focus on best execution, your transactions are executed efficiently and effectively, be it 'high touch' (phone/EDA) or through our Direct Market Access (DMA) platform.

Our trading desks cover:

  • Equities

  • Foreign exchange and precious metals

  • Fixed Income

  • Structured Products

  • Derivatives (OTC & Listed)

Bespoke solutions

With our trading background, working up bespoke investment strategies for complex portfolios is part of our mission.  Our teams have extensive experience with both vanilla products and more sophisticated trades, such as transactions on equities from emerging and frontier markets and block trading.

Individual investor access

Our Direct Client Access (DCA) team provides private individuals involved in their trading activities direct access to the markets, as well as consultation services and expertise. Our service offers dedicated support through a single point of contact, and privileged access to products and services across our platforms.

In-custody solutions

Professional investors who are custody clients with ASW have privileged access to our Sales Trading teams, who can put together a comprehensive set of trading services to match your own tools, whether traditional or electronic.

Analysis and ideas

At ASW Trading & Sales, investors have access to investment opportunities across a variety of financial instruments, ranging from tactical positions to efficient financial baskets and bespoke trading strategies.  Depending on their location, investors can also benefit from market analysis and trading ideas from our strategy desk.

Independence and impartiality

As ASW is not an investment bank, our teams are un-conflicted,  both in their ability to act in the best interests of our clients, and in their ability to offer impartial advice. While we draw on a wide range of sources for our market judgements, we rely on our own independent and trading analysis for our trading decisions.

Not everyone can be an expert at following, trading and taking advantage of daily market opportunities. ASW delivers retail investors access to the traders at our execution desk with our managed account programmes. 

With programmes offering Fixed Income and Capital growth combined with commission based only account managers our portfolios deliver a valuable investment option for busy individuals and families
