Cash Equities

Exchange Traded Funds ("ETFs”) are open ended investment vehicles that are designed to trade like an individual security on a trading venue.

 

Most ETFs are index funds replicating an equity or bond index and are designated as UCITS ETFs, which means that they can be marketed freely within the EU.

Under the European directive 2009/65 EC ("the Directive”), from 1 July 2012 ETF sponsors will be required to issue Key Investor Information Documents ("KIIDs”) for all UCITS ETFs.

 

The KIID provides summary information in relation to the ETF to assist investors in deciding whether to make an investment in a UCITS ETF.

The Directive requires that these are made available to investors for the relevant UCITS ETF prior to making an investment.  Set out below is a list of ETF providers relating to ETFs that are available through Aura Solution Company Limited together with links to the relevant providers’ websites to assist investors with obtaining the relevant KIID(s).

The information and material on this page is not directed to, or intended for distribution to or use by, any person or entity who is a citizen or resident of or located in any locality, state, country or other jurisdiction where such distribution, publication, availability or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject Aura Solution Company Limited to any registration or licensing requirement within such jurisdiction.

 

Risk Considerations

Investors should note that ETF products are not capital protected or guaranteed in any way and therefore investors should not invest in such products unless they are able to sustain losses up to the full amount of capital invested. The value of ETFs may go down as well as up and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

 

Investment in ETFs involves risks. For fuller details of related risks please view the relevant risk disclosures in each provider’s KIID and other materials.

 

Our industry-leading franchise delivers access to trading liquidity, research and market content on a global scale through an innovative technology platform and a highly experienced team.

High Touch Trading delivers client order execution and market making, providing liquidity to institutional clients through both natural flow and capital commitments, when necessary.

Program Trading provides leading basket order execution for institutional and pension clients, and also engages with our growing passive investor client base and ETF market participants through our differentiated Create/Redeem offering.

Advanced Execution Services AES® is our award-winning suite of algorithmic and direct market access trading strategies, tools and analytics.

Equities Distribution is deeply embedded in the investment and execution processes of our institutional clients to help deliver creative solutions for their financing, capital markets and operational needs.

 

We also partner closely with our leading Equity Capital Markets franchise to help corporate issuers raise capital.

#paymaster.jpeg

Paymaster

A Paymaster is a cash account a business relies on to pay for small, routine expenses. Funds contained in imprests are regularly replenished, in order to maintain a fixed balance.

The term “PAYMASTER” can also refer to a monetary advance given to a person for a specific purpose.

 

Petty cash funds are typically handled by custodians who monitor the account and dispense cash to employees, who in turn furnish business-related receipts.

#auraoffshore

Offshore Banking

The term offshore refers to a location outside of one's national boundaries, whether or not that location is land- or water-based. The term may be used to describe foreign banks, corporations, investments, and deposits.

A company may legitimately move offshore for the purpose of tax avoidance or to enjoy relaxed regulations.

Offshore financial institutions can also be used for illicit purposes such as money laundering and tax evasion.

#auracash.jpeg

Cash fund 

Wire transfer, bank transfer or credit transfer, is a method of electronic funds transfer from one person or entity to another. A wire transfer can be made from one bank account to another bank account, or through a transfer of cash at a cash office. One important way ACH transfers differ from wire transfer is that the recipient can initiate it. 

A fund is a pool of money that is allocated for a specific purpose. A fund can be established for many different purposes: a city government setting aside money to build a new civic center, a college setting aside money to award a scholarship.
