Bank of Valletta is currently offering customers a 25% discount on stockbroking fees for all executed trade instructions sent via the online eBrokerage service. Customers who use BOV internet banking can access the eBrokerage service (my money, my investments, buy or sell securities) and immediately start benefiting from this offer. Discount does not apply to minimum fee, exchange related or out of pocket fees.
“The BOV eBrokerage service is an easy and convenient way to route trade instructions. It provides our customers with access to both foreign and local non-complex securities such as equities, corporate debt, ETFs, government stocks as well as foreign sovereign debt,” said Mark Scicluna, BOV Executive responsible for Capital Markets and Institutions. “We are proud to offer so many different channels through which our customers can have access to stockbroking services, based on their personal preferences.”
The eBrokerage service is backed by a team of skilled BOV traders who can execute customers’ trade instructions from Monday to Friday, 8 am till 5.45 pm, as well as on local public holidays. “Our customers also have the peace of mind in the knowledge that behind each channel there is a strong team of professional traders with years of training and experience to ensure that instructions are executed in the most efficient manner and in accordance with the Bank’s Best Execution practices,” continued Scicluna.
