Professional Trade Desk Services


Connected to the Markets

M.S. Howells & Co. has its roots in trade execution. Our veteran traders routinely execute complex equity, fixed income, and option strategies on behalf of our customers. We have long standing relationships on Wall Street and at all the major exchanges. With execution capabilities in both the pre- and post-markets, as well as connections to 37 foreign exchanges, whatever your needs, we can get it done.

Our firm is not a market maker and acts solely as an agent on behalf of its clients when executing orders. M.S. Howells & Co. does not receive payment for order flow from buy side institutions for introducing and executing orders or “showing order flow”. We work orders in an agency capacity, providing anonymity for clients while carefully monitoring market prices to ensure that clients receive the best possible execution prices.


Flexible Trading

It’s after 4 PM Eastern Time do you know where your trader is? Our clients do.

Our Trade Desk is online and ready for your business from 8 AM to 6 PM Eastern Time. Seize opportunities that occur in pre and post market trading. Can you really afford to be without that kind of market access?


Experienced Execution

M.S. Howells & Co. maintains a sophisticated Trade Desk to service the complex execution needs of institutional clients. The personal attention of our seasoned traders, supported by the speed and reliability of our technology infrastructure, makes our desk a perfect fit for Hedge Fund managers and RIAs.

Our traders are highly experienced in equity, options, debt and derivative products. We can facilitate corporate stock buy backs or exercise employee options. Even Restricted Stock transactions that require additional operational support can be handled in house. Using our diverse array of established buy and sell-side relationships, we are able to discreetly execute volume trades while still maintaining the confidentiality and anonymity of our clients. Even if you only need us to supplement your existing capabilities, you will still receive the unparalleled level of service our customers expect. All trades are completed on an agency basis to avoid any conflicts of interest.

Expanded trading hours, access to foreign exchanges, long standing relationships on the street, skilled institutional traders… these are just some of the reasons to move your execution business to M.S. Howells & Co.
