Sales trading services
We provide superior sales trading skills and seamless execution services.
As one of Australia’s largest brokers by volume traded and top ten brokers by number of trades, CommSec can offer significant and distinct trading advantages to clients trading in the Australian share market. A team of experienced traders focus on providing trade monitoring and execution to ensure optimal coverage for all types of trading activity, especially those trades requiring anonymity.
Electronic execution services
We provide Direct Market Access to institutional investors.
CommSec is one of the largest Direct Market Access (DMA) brokers in Australia. The direct access order routing solutions are tailored to conform to institutional in-house requirements and meet the high standards and demands of professional investors.
The large through-put of orders and broad spread of client types ensures no individual client or client type dominates trading volumes. This diversity provides anonymity – essential to low impact execution.
The CommSec DMA framework can accept order flow over numerous international order routing platforms or via FIX connections to proprietary order management systems. A range of technology partners are specifically engaged to suit individual investor requirements, and include Australian domiciled organisation IRESS Market Technology Limited which designs, develops, markets and supports trades.
Offshore partners include GL Trade, Bloomberg, ORC Technology, Reuters and Radianz Transaction Network Services.
CommSec offers its own clearing services.
