E-trading from PostFinance has a new look. The financial service provider now offers its customers a redesigned, intuitive user interface that they can personalize. This makes securities trading even easier for its 60,000 or so e-trading customers. They can trade shares, bonds, funds, ETFs and derivatives themselves on the most important stock markets in Switzerland, Europe and North America in real time. The new e-trading was developed by Swissquote.
In May 2014, PostFinance established a strategic partnership with Swissquote and acquired a 5 percent equity interest in Swissquote Group Holding AG. The pilot project for the new e-trading started in October 2015, and since 17 May 2016, all e-trading customers have been able to carry out their stock market transactions on the new platform. On the basis of its licence to operate as a securities dealer granted at the same time as the banking licence in June 2013, PostFinance now acts as a client dealer and custodian bank. Swissquote is responsible for custody account management on behalf of PostFinance.
