Objectives and Key Deliverables
We are an execution-only financial futures broker, providing execution only broking services to Introducing Brokers with retail clients. In addition to being an execution only broker, we carry client accounts, manage regulatory compliance, maintain relationships with clearing brokers, and report to clients.
We are considering new areas for business development including:
- advisory, voice-broking services targeting a niche who want a full-service (not internet only) broker
- providing principal broking and fund administration services to small funds who do not have direct relationships with a sufficient range of clearing brokers
- providing a broader range of wealth management services to retail customers
- Assess our current resources and capabilities
- Determine the resources and capabilities needed to develop new areas of business, such as those listed in objectives
- Develop a series of market-benchmarked, costed options across a range of business models (commission-based revenues, annual management fees etc) in a limited array of potential areas of business
- Deliver a business plan and a recommendation to move into one adjacent sector
