Custody and execution

Manage your investments and trade without advice

Barclays investment platform offers an execution and custody-only service to investors without the need for advice.

Our execution-only service is there to strengthen your global trading capability. It's a ‘best execution’ service that allows you to place orders via the Barclays network. It offers a wide range of securities across multiple markets, asset classes, and currencies for a truly integrated investment service.

Our open architecture approach

Our open architecture approach means we have access to a wide range of global institutional broker dealers, consolidated into one single relationship. We actively select counterparties who we believe will add the most value to you at the point of trade.

Why choose Barclays

Our service is convenient, flexible and secure. It allows you to view your portfolio in real time, providing you with the visibility and transparency you need. Our platform gives you access to the following asset classes:

  • Equities
  • Fixed income
  • ETFs
  • Funds
  • FX.


Please remember the value of investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you original invested.
