Best for electronic warrants services: Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs’s warrants site has one property that clearly places it ahead of competitors: the fact that it allows a comparison of warrants from any bank - not just its own.
The site covers warrants in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and the UK and enables users to trade with live prices.
As well as providing a sophisticated suite of analytical tools that helps clients to compare and sort warrants by several criteria, the site’s interactive warrant analyzer enables them to drill down and adjust assumptions to see the effects on sensitivity measures and prices graphically.
Additionally, a powerful screening and scenario analysis tool enables users to identify suitable warrants out of the entire available universe by specifying key criteria.
Clients can even use the site to create their own capital guarantee products. By simply specifying a percentage of capital protection and a time frame, the site finds the most suitable warrants that the user could buy.
The site is well designed, providing easy access to historical data, which can be easily examined in greater depth. It also has useful boxes such as one that shows the top gainers and losers.
