We’re revealing what happens when you place a buy or sell order via the share trading app with BlackBull Markets.

Just like all of the mainstream share trading platforms in New Zealand, the team at BlackBull has entered into a relationship with a partner network. BlackBull Markets are working with Interactive Brokers. They are a US-based registered broker-dealer who acts as our execution partner. They have infrastructure and partnerships in place all across the globe to provide access to global markets.

When you fund your account and place your order in New Zealand with BlackBull Markets, the order instantaneously goes to Interactive Brokers (IBKR) to go to market in its respective jurisdiction.

As soon as IBKR takes the order to its respective market, it is now in the open market, ready to be executed. You see all of this in real-time on the BlackBull Markets app.

Why partner with IBKR?

In order for us to gain access to share trading markets all over the globe, we needed a clearing broker in each of those jurisdictions.
