Execution-only stockbroking

If your clients would like to benefit from our sophisticated in-house dealing facility, but prefer to take responsibility for their own investment decisions, our execution-only stockbroking service is ideal for them.

How does execution-only stockbroking work?

With our execution-only stockbroking service, we simply take and execute orders. We operate a straight-through processing platform with seamless settlement for both our nominee service and third-party custodians. Our experienced dealers are familiar with the intricacies of trading a wide range of financial assets across many different markets.

Large or sophisticated orders are skilfully supported by our institutional trading desks and we have direct links to a variety of multilateral trading facilities. 

To use this service, investors should be experienced, and understand the risks and potential rewards of the investments they're considering. There is a £400 minimum fee but this is offset against any trading fees incurred operating a stockbroking account with us to buy and sell assets.


How can clients check their investments?

Your clients can choose to receive a clearly laid-out valuation report each quarter by post or online, whichever suits them best.

Clients can also view their accounts online at any time, no matter where they are, through our easy-to-use CG Wealth Online portal and app, including their investments, statements and historical valuations.

Keeping you and your clients informed

What is ESG (environmental, social and governance) investing?

There has been a significant growth and interest in investing on a responsible basis and the area is continually evolving. However, for investors, traditional ‘ethical’ investment solutions have tended to leave a limited choice of companies to invest in, compromising diversification and therefore investment risk/returns. ESG (environmental, social and governance) investing allows investors to take a proactive approach to investing responsibly but not at the expense of their risk/returns.

Investment involves risk. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Our portfolios are designed to work over a typical investment cycle of 7-10 years, so we recommend you stay invested for at least seven years.

The information provided is not to be treated as specific advice. It has no regard for the specific investment objectives, financial situation or needs of any specific person or entity.

David Chapman

Stockbroking Director

I have worked in the finance industry for over twenty years. I am passionate about financial markets and, in particular, direct equity investing. I started my career at Barings Asset Management in the 1990s in the private client discretionary team. After a brief hiatus to learn to fly helicopters in the US, I returned to Guernsey and took up a position on the stockbroking desk in October 2008 - just as the global financial crisis was in full swing.

Whilst a lot of things have changed in my time at the company, such as the way markets are traded and the systems that are in place, the fundamentals to investing remain - and this is where my passion lies. I am a member of our advisory stock selection committee and offer advice to a diverse client base.

Head of Stockbroking, Guernsey

Having been interested in financial markets from an early age (I think my first purchase was British Airports Authority (BAA) at aged 14), I jumped at the chance of joining the company graduate scheme on my return to the island following University and a ski season in Chamonix. After spending time working in various departments, I felt my skills were best suited to stockbroking and joined the desk in 2006.

I have been Head of the Guernsey stockbroking desk since 2012. Certain aspects have changed greatly, such as the systems we use and market infrastructure, however, the general nature of markets, our commitment to client service and the protection of client assets remains the same as ever. I count myself very lucky to be working in a team of committed professionals, using a world-class platform, and with an enviable client base. I have never been more excited about the firm's future than I am today.
