Employment information

Stockbrokers execute financial transactions involving stocks and bonds on behalf of clients. Most stockbrokers work for a brokerage firm, handling transactions for individual and institutional customers. They are often paid on a commission basis although compensation methods vary. Stockbroking Dealers are expected to be performing transactions within a regulated market and normally require a licence or registration.

Roles primarily focused on ongoing processing and transaction support, rather than executing buy and sell orders in the marketplace on behalf of clients, are not considered highly relevant.
