    Pros

    2006, the Glitnir Group bought Fischer Partners Fondkommission, which officially became Glitnir AB on the 12th January 2007. In 2008 HQ AB aquired 100 procent av of Glitnir AB and the name changed to HQ Direct AB.

    The company had been in operation since 1984 when it was founded by Tomas Fischer. Tomas Fischer was one of Sweden’s pioneers in the field of active share trading. He was one of the first people to voice dissatisfaction with the system of passively receiving orders. Instead, he actively took the initiative to introduce a different way of doing business. As a result, he made a considerable contribution to modernizing Swedish share trading.

    HQ Direct was amongst the very first companies to start working with electronic trading. The first systems were already in place as early as 1997 and our specific commitment to electronic trading continues to this day.

    In 2007, HQ Direct bought Tamm & Partners, in doing so significantly expanding the Group’s resources in the area of Corporate Finance.

    In 2007, Private Banking operations were also launched in Stockholm, which today embodies three persons.
