On the retail front we currently have 23 Dealers which cater to 3,000+ retail clients through our branch offices. Our sales traders provide constant and timely color on market moves and news flow which impact price action. IMS’ sales traders act as the "eyes and ears" of their clients in the equity marketplace by identifying trends in the marketplace and providing market color to clients. Our sales traders work with clients in order to obtain the best and most effective execution for their orders. We ensure best execution through our utmost emphasis on compliance, order security and the highest ethical standards.
IMS provides non-conflicting services to our 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.
Providing the buy-side with anonymous execution and crossing at levels when the opportunity arises, the desk is truly unique. We provide an edge in small- to mid- caps, where on-market liquidity is often lacking. To minimize information leakage and impact on the price while achieving maximum results, IMS ensures trading clients keep complete control of the process from inception to completion.
