Implementation Solutions

Execution services

We can help you reclaim some of the lost value paid to a broker for executing a trade through the following services:

Commission Recapture

By directing trades through our commission recapture programme, you receive an explicit fee rebate without doing anything else differently. This lost value can add up easily. In 2012 we were able to save our clients more than $NZ27.5 million.

Commission sharing agreements (CSA)

We use a variety of methods, such as direct CSA or CSA Aggregation, to redirect commissions to pay for services which you directly use or to provide a discount on other services. These methods provide you with an implicit fee rebate and reduce your overall fees.

We help you attain the best execution in trading by making sure that each trade is efficient, transparent and unbiased. We know how important it is to match solid execution with a sound investment strategy. Our seasoned trading team delivers client-centric, flexible solutions while employing the latest advances in technology to find liquidity pools that reduce transaction costs and manage risk.

Our trading services provide you with

  • Integrity of service. Our agency-only approach ensures our executions are completed without the conflict associated with proprietary crossing networks or liquidity pools.
  • Unsurpassed access to liquidity. You gain access to 109 markets spanning every country within a capital market structure.
