About Us

A world leader in professional brokerage activities

Compagnie Financière Tradition (CFT) is one of the world’s top interdealer broking firms, with a presence in 28 countries. In the last decade, the company has significantly expanded, primarily through organic growth.

Acting as a marketplace and an intermediary, CFT facilitates transactions between financial institutions and other professional traders in the capital markets. These transactions vary in scale and liquidity, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, the most liquid to the most illiquid.

The key to our success has been our ability to understand the evolving needs of our extensive and long-established network of clients, together with our strong capabilities in derivative markets.

A global and diverse product offering
We provide brokerage services in a comprehensive range of financial and commodity-related markets.

The financial markets we cover include money markets, interest rate and currency derivatives, equities and equity derivatives, bonds and repurchase agreements, and credit derivatives.

Our commodity-related markets include derivatives in oil, natural gas, power, coal, weather, emissions, precious metals, pulp and paper, and property.
We are a member of several exchanges, operating in both exchange-traded and over-the-counter markets.

While we are a leading specialist in derivatives, we have also expanded our brokerage offering in cash bonds and equities.

Matching clients across five continents
We have developed a worldwide network of offices spanning 28 countries. We cover all the key financial centres around the globe, where we have close and long-term relationships with a wide range of counterparties. We can therefore provide clients with a liquidity hub, as well as intimate knowledge of local markets and products.
