FAQs

Reasons for using Swissquote Bank?

First and foremost, Swissquote is based in Switzerland, but also regulated in the UK; which is needed for a large portion of our high-net client distribution.

Swissquote Bank SA offers one of the best-specialised trading environments via its online financial platform and its analysis & selection tools. The bank offers a specific, premium service for high-net clients which is in turn, ideal for our tailor-made, asset management trading model.

In addition, the bank offers one of the best available electronic asset management tools, ePrivate Banking, as well as traditional banking services. These include; mortgages, savings accounts and more specialised transactions, such as currency trading. Not to mention the support, which is one of the best in the industry.

What is the rationale of the Investment – via LPOA (Limited Power of Attorney)?

At Formaltrade we believe that the best asset management is when the client has all the power of their capital.  This is what you get when using our model via the Limited Power of Attorney (LPOA).

The funds remain in the client account at all times. Funds remain protected as segregated bank account and ONLY available for the Asset Manager to manage during trading hours.

Methodology of Investment, how is this to be managed, on a day to day basis?

All trading activity is carried out and settled mainly within the same business day.  The model only looks to trade when the right conditions are met.

Note: We do not attempt to let any position run overnight.  All trades are settled, anticipated end of the day.

Will the same people be involved, as per the past performance figures achieved?

The same structured team are involved in the current methodology (active management) of the trading model. This is the same team system that was responsible for the very high level (of ROI) that the fund performed throughout its history, to date.

What opportunities are currently foreseen?

With the recent disruption ad volatility seen in global markets, we foresee extremely low-interest rates worldwide for a considerable time, especially whilst debt remains so high.

Even though markets have somewhat recovered from the lows in March/April 2020, investor confidence has suffered considerably.

The volatility during the outbreak of Covid19 shows just how fragile the global economy can be. Sentiment will remain ‘shaky’ as no doubt we expect a continuation of the ‘debt bubble’ with several trillion most certainly due to be added in the coming months (updated 2nd Quarter 2020).

Over the coming years, we see a hyper inflationary period setting in, which is not unusual after such a prolonged (central bank induced) artificial money expansion.

We see more people spending less as their savings are reduced (due to low rates) and yields from many other (regulated investment) vehicles dramatically reducing over time, in line with rising global unemployment.

Formaltrade Asset Management remains independent of these (previously noted) market conditions. Our model is based on ALL price movements of one currency pair. Our model selectively sources particular trades in rising, falling and stagnant markets.

The capability of trading on such fine prices, allow us to gain on positions from the slightest of market moves.

Possible risk factors; can the client disconnect their account at any time?

Yes, if the client wishes, he/she can contact the bank (Swissquote) with instructions to immediately pause or disconnect the trading model at any time, for any reason.

Note:  If the client requests this while there are open positions, the client can ask for them to be closed out or allow Formaltrade group to close them at their original discretionary target level, or agree to do so, by the end of days trading or in any other form or time frame.

What internal control processes are in use?

The Formaltrade Group has very well implemented supplementary internal controls of all daily transactions in the company’s business activities.  The internal control measures are based on the company’s introduction of additional yearly transactions reporting, in addition to the annual income reporting to regulatory agencies.

Daily transactions are updated continually prior to the yearly report presented as a percentage table for the authorities. By means of this table, the public can follow all levels of transactions in the form of daily, weekly and monthly increases or decreases expressed as percentages.

At the end of each year, the data is submitted to the accounting firm for review and access to the company’s account, which can be checked around the clock and historically.  The table is then updated at the end of each year based on possible confirmation from the accounting firm.

This method helps ensure regulatory agencies can gain an understanding of the company’s business in advance and prior to the annual report. As a result, the process of compilation of information prior to the annual report is also made easier and more accurate, thereby allowing for mistakes to be corrected before they happen.

What can be informed about Formaltrade Group auditors or auditing systems?
