The plumbing of stock brokerages


The plumbing of stock brokerages

In this week’s video insight Andreas discusses the recent news headlines emerging out of the US about retail investors ramping up stock prices in heavily short illiquid companies to create artificial short squeezes driving the share prices even higher and enabling the investors to sell and realise gains. Further news stated that retail brokerages such as Robinhood started to restrict buying of stocks involved in short squeezes. Andreas identifies how these brokerages work.


Andreas is the joint Portfolio Manager of The Montgomery Fund. Andreas joined from Navigo Partners, a M&A advisory firm in Stockholm, Sweden where he was a Director responsible for origination and execution of Scandinavian projects. Before this, he worked for three years in corporate strategy at Alinta Energy in Sydney.
