Our aggregation technology offers you flexibility and potential cost benefits through easy administration.

We aggregate all your underlying orders to create single market orders, while still maintaining the underlying individual order details in the system. This enables seamless reporting back on each order while still gaining all the advantages of consolidated market deals. This can be done once a day or multiple times a day if needed. It can be particularly advantageous for institutions, discretionary managers and large platforms. Your business has the option to aggregate or not as you choose.

Our aggregation technology also enables you to trade fractional ETFs

Execution quality icon

Execution quality

Execution is the core of our business, so you can rely on the robust controls and procedures to achieve demonstrable best execution for your deals.

To do this, we continually monitor and analyse our trading, benchmarking the execution outcomes against our clients' success criteria.

You will receive regular trade cost analysis produced by a third-party service, LiquidMetrix, which independently evaluates and demonstrates the quality of our execution. Your report focuses on KPIs such as price improvement, spread capture, performance by execution, as well as any outliers, making it straightforward to monitor best execution. These reports will be discussed in your regular service meeting as an essential element of our commitment to transparency.

ETF icon

Fractional ETF trading

WBS is an award-winning innovator in trading ETFs.

Our Fractional ETF Trading service arose from our desire to open up access to ETF trading to a wider range of investors allowing model portfolios to be fully invested in ETFs.

WBS partnered with industry leaders in order to deliver this unique proposition to the market.

Our service enables you to trade a defined list of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) on a fractional basis, using our aggregation technology. WBS will buy whole units in the market and manage fractional quantities internally to facilitate multiple client ETF orders up to 4 decimal places. A low touch, seamless integration to the EOS Fractional ETF model ensures clients can differentiate their offering easily and can sell down the fraction if desired.

With gilts and fixed income, you get access to international bonds and other debt products. You can also send orders in major currencies and the system handles foreign transaction taxes too.

With EOS you get the speed and efficiency derived from automation in all markets where this is possible. Our software connects to and price-polls multiple liquidity providers for ‘best price’.

In-house proprietary routing tools offer Smart Order Routing (SOR) to provide intelligent assessments of liquidity pools and fine-tune advanced algorithmic decision making processes in fragmented markets to analyse the best available options as quickly as possible from the different offers available.

You will get access to global pools of liquidity because we work with retail clients and a wide variety of international markets - including both dark and lit regulated markets.

But you also can rely on our long-standing market relationships that can ensure that your dealing requests can be handled personally when required.

Retail client books icon


We understand the intricacies of managing your client’s money and know the real benefits for the client come through the investment decision-making process.

Through the award-winning EOS system, WBS offers investment management modelling tools for discretionary managers to manage clients’ positions through model portfolios. 

The service WBS provides is intuitive and dashboard driven, giving an integrating and easily accessible view of your clients. You can test the impact of portfolio changes by using the software’s ‘What if?’ scenario algorithm to evaluate potential outcomes. Visibility can also be shared with the compliance team to allow for easy oversight of any model weight changes and drift.

The tried and tested solution offers the ability to hold multiple asset classes in multiple models in clients wrappers. You can manage the client relationship from start to finish including a suite of management information.

Transaction icon

Retail client books and records

WBS is authorised and regulated by the FCA to hold client money, as well as safeguarding and administering assets on behalf of our clients.

Our EOS platform holds detailed records that clearly identify the assets held by each individual client. Investments for eligible claimants are covered by the provisions of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

The safeguarding of client assets is paramount to our proposition. We operate strict processes and oversight to ensure we have robust CASS (Client Assets and Money) controls. All client money is held by us in trust, in dedicated bank accounts and is segregated from our own money. Assets belonging to clients are segregated from firm assets in a dedicated nominee company, Winterflood Client Nominees Limited. We do not lend any stock held in our custody service.

From permissions to statements and valuations, we can help you manage the administration and reporting of your retail client accounts.

Wrappers icon

Transaction reporting data service

Our platforms are designed with transparency at their core, helping us and our clients to meet the changes to transaction reporting required under MiFID II.

The WBS transaction reporting data service is designed with your needs in mind, providing your business with the tools to remain compliant under the MiFID II regime. To support this, it provides out-of-the-box reports, to assist you with your regulatory reporting obligations. Clients who opt into our data service are provided with transaction reporting data in a format ready for onward transmission to the regulator via their Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM).
