It offers clients a multi-asset class prime brokerage platform covering a variety of financial and commodity assets and instruments including listed products, equities, fixed income, interest rates, foreign exchange and commodities.

The Capital Introduction team, headed globally by Duncan Crawford, leverages its strong working relationships across a broad range of investors from seed allocators to later-stage investor and works closely with both investors and fund managers to support their objectives and strategies.
