sector de inversiones (cuentas) propietarias
Explanation: En finanzas, se suele utilizar la palabra "desk" para indicar a un grupo de personas que trabaja en un tema/sector específico; por ejemplo: Asian Investment Desk como el grupo de personas que trabaja con inversiones en Asia.
Creo que por el contexto "propietary desk" se refiere a sector de inversiones o cuentas propietarias.
Explanation: A proprietory desk is that part of an international bank that deals with buying and selling currencies, bonds, etc.
It says Citigroup breached its obligation to Toll when employees on its proprietary desk, trading the bank's own money and unaware of the bank's involvement in advising Toll, bought Patrick shares amid speculation that a bid was imminent.
