The Newedge Difference
Newedge is a leader in global brokerage.
We combine a broad, multi-asset product offering and access to global exchanges with a solid balance sheet and the support of a highly rated parent bank. An independent management and regulatory structure allows us to focus solely on the needs of our customers and minimize potential sources of conflict of interest.
Formed in 2008, Newedge is 100% owned and controlled by Société Générale, Newedge acts as an impartial partner to its clients.
A strong governance structure and operating model enables us to minimize conflicts of interest and be the leading independent player in the brokerage world.
In addition to our parent bank, Newedge itself has banking status. For Newedge customers, this provides added strength and stability compared to a traditional brokerage model. As a bank, Newedge must meet strict banking standards pertaining to financial reserves and regulatory procedures.
Our core business is futures and options on listed financial and commodity markets, and we have developed our business to be a world leader in execution and clearing. From this platform, we have worked to extend our offer to include to cash markets and OTC derivatives in fixed income, foreign exchange, equities and indexes, and commodities including agriculturals and softs, energy and emissions and metals.
Our global platform, which comprises more than 85 global exchanges, means clients can trade the world from a single point of contact, as well as benefit from sophisticated prime brokerage and financing services.
