Our business

Compagnie Financière Tradition is a leading IDB (Inter Dealer Broker) on the international market. Present in 30 countries, the Group employs over 2,400 people worldwide and provides intermediation services for a wide range of financial products (money markets, bond markets, interest rate, currency and credit derivatives, equities, equity derivatives, interest rate and index futures) and non-financial products (energy, environment, precious metals). Compagnie Financière Tradition SA is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange (CFT). The Group provides services to financial institutions and other professional traders in the capital markets. In response to regulatory developments in recent years, and as a logical extension of its voice brokerage services, the Group is stepping up the development of its electronic brokerage services through its proprietary hybrid technology and the launch of various platforms.
In 2023, the Group’s activities are evolving against a backdrop of central bank monetary policy normalization, with interest rates rising over the course of the year, followed by a period of observation in the search for the right balance point to combine inflation control and a soft landing for the economy. These factors, combined with an already complex geopolitical environment, were conducive to the Group’s professional intermediation activities.

Compagnie Financière Tradition reported growth in business for the 2023 financial year, with reported consolidated revenue of CHF 982.4 million, compared with CHF 947.4 million in 2022, an increase of 10.6% at constant exchange rates. At current exchange rates, Compagnie Financière Tradition’s consolidated revenue are up 3.7%.


In 2023, the Group’s operating income rose sharply to CHF 105.5 million from CHF 94.2 million in 2022, representing growth of 19.7% at constant exchange rates. This performance is due in particular to sustained activity across all geographical regions throughout 2023, against a backdrop of revised international monetary policy and rising interest rates.

Profit before tax will amount to CHF 127.2 million, compared with CHF 120.1 million in 2022.

Consolidated net income was CHF 101.1 million, up 13.4%, and net income Group share was CHF 94.4 million versus CHF 89.1 million in 2022, up 15.9% at constant exchange rates.

The Group has maintained its focus on a strong balance sheet, with a high level of shareholders’ equity, a low level of intangible assets and a strong net cash position. Indeed, consolidated shareholders’ equity is CHF 426.0 million, compared with CHF 442.5 million in 2022, with gross available cash rising to CHF 383.0 million at December 31, 2023.
