The Benleumi introduces you to a world of investments

 Trading shares in stock markets in Europe and U.S

  • The trading room maintains direct computer communication contact with several brokers abroad, so that customer orders reach the appropriate destination in real time.
  • Leading databases provide updated quotes and financial news – any information that can support real time investment decision making.

Trading foreign debentures

  • Trading international debentures traded OTC in Europe and the U.S., issued by private companies or governmental entities.
  • Daily online contact with "market makers" and leading issuing companies, providing customers with access to the debenture inventory and market liquidity.
  • Seeking debentures for investors while relating to specific criteria (return, redemption, rating, currency, investment amount, interest rate) with the aim of obtaining competitive pricing.

Information and Consulting Services

  • Information relating to public companies, including financial reports, graphs for technical analyses, company news and developments, analyst recommendations and recent studies published by leading international investment banks.

Clearing and Stock Custody

  • The Benleumi maintains several agreements with brokerages and clearing houses, enabling it to provide its customers with global custody services – receiving dividends, interests, payment distribution, transfers and stock holding.
  • The First International Bank provides foreign securities clearing services – "Settlement Actual" – Future clearing based on an actual credit/debit in a stock exchange abroad.

    Fore example:  In the U.S., stock is cleared in the U.S. after three business days.  Options in the U.S. are cleared after only one business day in the U.S.  In Europe, stock is cleared within up to 7 business days in Europe 9based on the actual clearing policy of the relevant exchange abroad).  Thus, the customer shall be charged for purchases on the actual clearing date and not beforehand
