For information on independent proprietary trading firms, SEE: Proprietary trading firm

Proprietary trading occurs when a financial institution such as an investment bank trades with its own money, deliberately taking risk on its own account, as opposed to trading on behalf of a customer. Proprietary trading can be risky; it can also be very profitable.

Proprietary trading uses complex strategies similar to those used by hedge funds.[1]
