Following the implementation of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) in the UK, we are required by the FCA to provide terms of business and a best execution and order handling policy. These documents are provided below.
Execution and Order Handling Policy:
This Policy applies to broker services provided to you by the regulated members of the Exotix Group referred to in our standard terms of business, as notified to you from time to time. This Policy should be read in conjunction with the terms of business.
The Policy sets out the arrangements Exotix has put in place to meet its obligations under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) to give best execution to Professional Clients and to comply with client order handling rules. MiFID’s best execution regime requires us to take all reasonable steps to obtain the best overall trading result for Customers, taking into account price, costs, speed, likelihood of execution and settlement, size, nature or any other consideration relevant to order execution whether we are executing orders, on behalf of Customers or placing orders with, or passing orders, to others for execution.
Terms of Business:
Conflicts of Interest Policy:
Under the FCA’s Principles for Businesses, Principle 8 requires a firm to “manage conflicts of interest fairly, both between itself and its customers and between a customer and another client.” Under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (“MiFID”) Exotix is required to maintain and operate effective organisational and administrative arrangements with a view to taking all reasonable steps to identify, monitor and manage such conflicts of interest. The Exotix Group of companies has put in place a policy to meet this obligation and set out below is a summary of that policy and the key information that is needed by clients and counterparties (together “customers”) to understand the measures Exotix is taking to safeguard the interests of its customers.
