    glitnir-the place to be

    Trader (Current Employee) Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)

    Pros2006, 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.

    Nice employees

    Financial Advisor (Former Employee) Reykjavík (Iceland)

    ProsThere is a free hot meal available at lunch which is a real perk. The general athmosphere at the workplace was quite friendly.

    ConsSomewhat rigid company culture but depended on whom you worked for there. Got an extremely low salary due to recession but heard that was just due to poor talent management of my department. Left due to low salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementCheck your employee's credentials before being too rigid with compensation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
