BBS Securities has signed up to offer Aequitas PTF Connect, the fund technology platform from Aequitas Technology Services (Aequitas Connect).

In addition to bolstering BBS Securities' portfolio management business (ICPM), as an early adopter of PTF Connect, this move lays the foundation for Virtual Brokers, the discount brokerage arm of BBS Securities, to ultimately become the first discount brokerage to offer PTFs.

We hope this is recognised as we ultimately work towards making PTFs also available to clients of Virtual Brokers," says Kambiz Vatan-Abadi, chief operating officer of BBS Securities and Virtual Brokers.
