The company known as SwissDirekt is a swiss asset manager and online broker for futures, forex, stocks and CFD trading. It was created as an independent financial institution. It describes its geographical location as “the important financial centre of Switzerland.” You can view its web pages in German (the default) or English. As a member of a self regulated organization (SRO - PolyReg) SwissDirekt is regulated by the Federal Department of Finance in Switzerland. SwissDirekt provides online trading services in stocks, forex, futures and CFD’s. The company promotes asset management and provides managed accounts to it clients. Clients can choose the program that suits them best according to “a reward/risk profile.” Presumably swissDirekt assists clients in creating such a profile using a needs assessment procedure of some kind. According to the company a managed futures account provides the advantage of transparency via daily statements and liquidity through the possibility of daily redemption. SwissDirekt suggests that their services are ideally suite for individuals who cannot spend sufficient time to manage their assets, those who need the advice of a professional trader or people looking to diversify their traditional investments. The company’s online trading platform appears to be proprietary and web-centric, although a technical note regarding cookies mentions “Windows SP2” – presumably Windows XP.

One can test a demo version of the platform for 20 days for no charge or obligation. SwissDirekt cites the following platform features as advantageous: • Direct access to the leading electronic futures markets • The ability to trade various products and markets all on one screen • Live Prices, Live Charts, Live News • Order recording, processing and confirmation in seconds • Real-time position reports • Real-time profit and loss calculation The exact nature of client support options could not be found at the SwissDirekt web site.
