The platform automates trading and settlement of standardised futures and option contracts. Futures are derivative financial contracts that require parties to buy or sell an asset at a future date and price, while options allow investors to speculate on or hedge against stock volatility.
The C-TRADE mobile and web-based platform facilitates the trading and settlement of equity instruments on the Financial Securities Exchange (FINSEC),
Victoria Falls Exchange as well as Zimbabwe Stock Exchange.
Through access to Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), C-TRADE offers investors a diverse selection of investment options. These securities track a basket of assets, such as stocks, bonds, or commodities. ETFs offer diversification, low expenses, and tax efficiency to investors.
C-TRADE provides retail and institutional investors access to Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).
These products are comparable to stocks in that they may be bought and sold, but they offer diversification into real estate. The site also facilitates their trading and settlement.
Unit Trusts are offered by C-TRADE and are ideal for those who want to invest in a professionally managed fund with exposure to a wide range of products.
Based on the amount invested by each individual, that person now owns a piece of the portfolio.
The platform makes it easy to buy and sell fixed income instruments like bonds and settle the trades. Debt instruments are paper or digital contracts that promise to pay back a lender according to the terms of a contract. They are used to raise money by the party that issues them.
