Equity & Derivatives Markets : Institutional Equity Sales &

Equity Market

One of the most important corporate objectives of Phatra Securities is the continuation and enhancement of unrivalled services provided to institutional investors. Since its origins in the 1970s, Phatra has distinguished itself by focusing its resources to provide superior services to institutional investors both local and foreign. 

In this respect, the company was the first among Thai companies to tie up with top global financial services companies such as SG Warburg and Goldman Sachs. A complete integration was undertaken in 1998 when Merrill Lynch held a majority stake in Phatra. This meant that Merrill Lynch Phatra was, for the first time, able to offer full equity market services for Thai equities to institutional investors throughout the globe.

The establishment of Phatra Securities did not alter the relationship with Merrill Lynch which has continued on as a strategic business alliance in regards to Securities Brokerage, research and investment banking. This ensures continuity and enhancement of the high standards of service offered to all institutional clients.

Indeed, Phatra Securities retains in full its equity sales and execution team, known for their professional integrity, expertise and long experience in the Thai market, to provides a high level of service to foreign and local institutional clients. The Thai team has continued to work closely with their Merrill Lynch (Now Changed new brand name to “BofA Securities”)colleagues in various parts of the world in order to provide the professionalism and high level of service that foreign institutional clients have come to expect from Phatra Securities.
