What Flow Traders Asia Does

PRINCIPAL TRADING OF EXCHANGE TRADED PRODUCTS (ETPs)

Don’t worry if you have no clue what Exchange Traded Products mean - we all start somewhere. Flow Traders Asia buys and sells ETPs. ETPs derive their value from an underlying portfolio of assets such as shares, bonds or commodities. The company buys and sells ETPs almost immediately to earn from the difference between the purchase (bid) and sale (ask/offer) price. They trade as a principal which means they do not have clients, nor do they provide any investment services, such as brokerage or investment advice, to people or any third parties.

The Purpose Behind

ENSURING LIQUIDITY
IN THE MARKET

As a principal trading firm, Flow Traders is always prepared to buy and sell ETPs, hence providing a lot of liquidity to the market. We call them a market maker - they literally ‘make’ the market by showing bid and offer prices. Without market makers, people can’t buy and sell as easily which creates extra risks and costs. This contributes to more efficient and transparent securities marketplaces. When you look at global financial markets, you’ll often see how having a liquid market helps keep stock markets more stable or less volatile.
