Conduit Securities was founded in 2015 in Singapore to provide institutional levels of service and transparent access to liquidity and market pricing to the wealth management industry; solving a problem increasingly encountered - the difficulty of incumbent providers to deliver a best-price execution model. The contrasting product background and experience of the partners provides a unique opportunity to introduce a new concept to meet the needs of those individuals and firms in the business of managing wealth for themselves and their clients. Conduit has partnered with a diverse array of clients, private banks, prime brokers, custodians, wealth managers, hedge funds and technology companies who share our vision and ambition to deliver something unique to our customers and remove the barriers and layers to global capital markets. As Conduit grows we have attracted a team with significant experience in multiple product areas, and we continue to deliver a differentiated service across both primary and secondary global markets.
