Take full control of your investments with C8
How it works
The C8 ecosystem connects asset owners around the world with some of the smartest investment professionals in the financial markets. This is achieved via Tradeable Indices, which allow clients to track the performance in any of our cutting edge investment approaches, both systematic and discretionary, using different assets classes such as Equities, Futures and FX. Our clients implement the actual underlying trades rather than sub-allocating capital to external managers. These Indices can be tracked as closely or as loosely as desired, as our clients have full control.
We provide our clients with C8 Studio, our demo and research platform, and C8X, our execution platform, so that you have all the tools to trade equities, forex, financial and commodity futures directly from your computer.
With no intermediary, you gain perfect transparency of all positions and an ability to customise your portfolio without the costs associated with sub-allocating your capital to external managers.

Making modern investment techniques accessible to more people
Have access to cutting edge investment techniques, without the need to develop them in-house, making it easy to add real diversification to the classic equity/bond portfolio mix.
Cost-efficient trading in our platform C8 Studio
It is straightforward to trade liquid strategies in-house with C8’s state-of-the-art execution engine, so why pay twice for compliance, custody, legal fees etc. It costs less this way because there are less costs.
True global access right from your desktop
Take the best investment ideas from around the world. Increased financial regulation and overseas due diligence makes access to cross-border investment managers difficult and expensive. But liquid strategies can be ported into your own desktop taking away the headaches.
A more ethical and transparent way of investing
Unlike external capital allocation, you know exactly what you own and portfolios can be customized as required. This is very beneficial given the increased emphasis on the Enviromental, Social and Governance (ESG) impact of investing.
