CLSA provides non-conflicting services to our global client base of institutional investors. Research, sales and trading operate independently of the corporate finance group and are not influenced by proprietary trading, corporate-finance requirements or management interference. You can read an overview of CLSA broking services in a recent issue of The Trade. This makes CLSA unique in the market and is one of the reasons we have been voted the most independent research brokerage in Asia by Asiamoney in the past ten out of eleven years.
Broking in China
CLSA offers clients access to Chinese equities through Fortune CLSA Securities Limited (Fortune CLSA), which was the first Sino-foreign joint-venture investment bank established in 2003 under the new regulations introduced by the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) following China’s accession to the WTO in 2002.
In June 2008, Fortune CLSA was granted a securities-broking licence and a securities-investment consultancy licence by the CSRC. With these two licences, Fortune CLSA offers A-shares brokerage (trading and research) services and underwrites and sponsors domestic equities and bond offerings.
Alternative Equity Products
CLSA offers Listed Derivatives and Synthetic Equity derivatives distribution. Products include Futures and Options broking, price return swap and equity swaps and a certificate programme for fully funded, long-only access to restricted markets.
CLSA is a pioneer of Direct Market Access (DMA) connectivity in Asia. We offer not only DMA access but uncompromised algorithmic trading execution to markets in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. We customise algorithms to our clients’ trading style, benchmark and preference and our execution is designed from the ground up specifically for Asia with the latest state-of-the-art-technology.
