Block trading essentially is a large size of stock traded in a single print.
Advantages of Block trading
The buyer can build a large position at a single price.
Types of Block trades
Typically there are 3 categories of Buyers & Sellers
1. Promoters (Founder of company)
2. Institutions (Mutual funds, Foreign institution)
3. Non promoter & Non institutions (UHNI investors, Trust, Family offices, Bank & Co-operate Treasuries)
Our Role in Block Trading
Typically most large size of shares are held by promoters, Institutions & non promoters. But through our network, we have access to large size of stocks through non promoter category (types mentioned in the slide 1).
One could view us as a sell sides broker, but we do not execute any trades at our end. So from the Buyers side, no fee or commission is to be paid to us. Buyers could use platforms such Goldman Sacs, BoAMF, Citi and the likes to execute the trade (our preferred names is Goldman Sacs).
Con calls with the management, direct one on one meetings with the
CFO, CEO and the promoters can be arranged as needed.
Two ways to work
A. We already have database of stocks in which we have sellers in a non promoter category, which can be offered.
B. If there is any interest in a certain stock, we can help you to source a large size seller in that stock.
