Vontobel Investment Banking continues to expand platform strategy

3/27/2017 Reading time: 2 minute(s)

As the largest issuer of leverage products, Vontobel – along with UBS, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank – rounds out the group of Swiss DOTS partners, thereby allowing clients to benefit from an even broader range of leverage products with narrow spreads. On Swiss DOTS, Vontobel will supplement the existing range with selected products. In the weeks after launch, it will offer around 10,000 leverage products such as warrants, knock-out warrants and mini-futures, as well as various underlying assets such as international and Swiss equities, currency pairs, indices, and precious metals. These can be traded on an exclusive basis directly with the issuer via Swiss DOTS, from Monday to Friday, 8am to 10pm.


Diversification of distribution channels

With this move, Vontobel expands its long-standing partnership and cooperation with Swissquote, while at the same time integrating its presence on Swiss DOTS in its own platform strategy. Vontobel systematically harnesses distribution potential and leads the way in the development of digital, structured products-related platforms tailored to specific needs. This allows it to diversify its distribution channels and further extend its market leadership.


Vontobel will continue to develop the market going forward in terms of the quality of decision-making information, transparency and efficiency.

“Swissquote’s Swiss DOTS offering is an ideal supplement to our platform strategy. As the largest issuer of leverage products in Switzerland, this will mean that we have tapped into virtually every distribution channel. We rank among the market leaders in Europe, with more than 330,000 issued products, seven million trades and one billion quotes per day. Our market shares and claim to leadership underscore the fact that we understand the dynamics of the challenges involved with leverage products, and that we have the essential expertise to master them. In this competitive international environment, we want to play a key role in shaping the ongoing developments in the market, further enhancing the quality of decision-making information, transparency and efficiency,” stated Roger Studer, Head of Vontobel Investment Banking.
