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

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.
