Pros
  • Swissquote is well positioned to leverage its high quality multi asset class trading platform at an international level and remain a market leader in its domestic market
  • Swissquote is progressively diversifying its revenue source not only through product offering (cryptos, staking, white-label partnerships) but also structurally (asset-based) which will benefit from the increasing rates environment
  • Swissquote’s strong balance sheet (a high CET1 ratio and no debt) gives it appreciated flexibility in terms of acquisition or organic growth (R&D remains key to the company’s DNA)
Cons
  • Swissquote’s top-line remains strongly correlated to the health of the financial markets (low level of recurring revenues)
  • Competition has pressured trading fees in recent years at a time when central banks’ low/negative rates have put pressure on net interest income
