Equity Sales & Trading

Equity sales and trading has been a core area of expertise since GMP Securities' inception.  Our reputation is founded on our superior execution of transactions and the ability to get the job done. With highly-experienced and dedicated professionals located in Canada and the United Kingdom, the scale of our operations ensures that we are optimally positioned to help our clients identify opportunities and to execute transactions across the globe. Our clients also benefit from strong institutional and retail networks for new product distribution that are based on long-standing and extensive industry relationships.

In today’s competitive marketplace, there is no substitute for leadership. GMP is consistently recognized as a leader in the origination, distribution and trading of equity and equity-related securities. We strive to lead in all aspects of the Canadian capital markets and to deliver strong after-market trading support synonymous with the GMP franchise. 

In the oil and gas sector, these services are provided through GMP FirstEnergy.

We primarily buy and sell securities as an agent, and do so understanding that the interests of our clients must always come first.  Our success is measured by GMP's trading market-share in our core franchise names, and we strive to lead trading in each of these securities. As a result, GMP Securities is positioned to provide its corporate clients with timely, institutional-market insight and strong, trade-flow intelligence.

Our highly-experienced team of professionals turns market insights and value-added research coverage into actionable ideas.

In 2018, GMP Securities was named Top Gun Canadian Sales Teams by Brendan Wood International.
