INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERINGS
WELCOME TO COMPASS GLOBAL MARKETS Compass Global Markets was formed in Sydney, Australia by a group of financial market specialists who wanted to create a business model that would change the face of investing in the foreign exchange and commodity markets. The vision was to found a customer-centric company where our clientsâ€™ success is intrinsically linked to that of our own. The ethos of pursuing profit at all costs - the formula for many financial institutions today - means conflicts of interest often arise, often to the eventual detriment of the client. This is where we are different. Our business model is simple - it has been developed so that we will only succeed if you succeed. Your best interests will always be aligned with our best interests in the spirit of a true partnership. Our directors offer a wealth of experience across the global markets and institutional banking space. We have all had successful institutional markets careers covering positions such as Spot FX Trader, FX Options Broker, Corporate FX Sales and Money Market Sales to name a few. Our experience in the financial markets, combined with our business acumen, is what differentiates us from the competition. We pride ourselves on partnering with our clients to help them reach their goals with reliable advice and support.

RESEARCH AND ADVISORY Today’s information age means that information has never been more freely available. However, access to information is not the same as being well informed. We have well respected market analysts to ensure that our clients have access to the best information and to ensure sound investment decisions. Our analysts appear regularly on CNBC, Bloomberg Television and Sky News Business. The cornerstone of our research & advisory division at Compass Global Markets is the ‘Compass Directions’ report. The report is focused on identifying short-term trade ideas and medium-term trends in the markets. We rely on our strong relationships with the most influential market participants for intelligence and combine that with rigorous analysis to formulate our views.
INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERINGS Compass Global Markets have a strong record of identifying and securing allocations in investment opportunities which we present to our clients for consideration. New IPOs are a relatively common occurrence. Access to high quality IPOs is much more difficult. The Australian mining industry has proven itself over the decades to be a global powerhouse and as the next commodity boom gets underway we see great opportunities for our clients to invest in new, up and coming mining companies. Some of the Key Benefits of investing in IPOs with Compass Global Markets: â€˘
Experience and knowledge that allows us to analyse solid investment opportunities
Extensive network of contacts that allows us to get access to tightly held opportunities
Priority allocations for clients
We have a track record of finding solid investment opportunities in the resource sector and focus mainly on small to mid-tier mining companies. We look for mining companies with resources ranging from gold and silver to coal and bauxite. Wherever the opportunity may be, Compass Global Markets will find it and provide it to our clients via a priority allocation.
FUNDS MANAGEMENT The traditional investment strategies of managed funds that focus largely on the equity markets are no longer showing the strong returns they have in the past. Alternative investments in commodities and foreign exchange now form a core part of any sound funds management strategy. At Compass Global Asset Management, a fully owned subsidiary of Compass Global Markets, we have created a managed account program within the FX, Commodity and Equity Index markets that allows us to capture volatility and follow the trends to provide our clients with consistent returns. These funds demonstrate sound risk management and investment processes and are managed by experts who will bring much added value and return for our client base. In order to achieve our goal we have employed some of the best traders and portfolio managers in the markets that have come from either an inter-bank trading background or hedge fund role. Our experience, combined with stringent risk management practices and proprietary knowledge of the markets allow us to provide our clients with steady returns.
