Best Execution Policy

Best Execution

This refers to the duty of Anchoria Investment and Securities limited in executing orders on behalf of customers to ensure the best execution possible for their customers’ orders. Some of the factors we broker consider of our customers’ orders include:

  • The opportunity to get a better price than what ls currently quoted,
  • The likelihood and speed of execution.

Financial Instruments To Which Policy Applies

This policy applies to financial instruments and products as defined by the Rules, including Stocks, Bonds, Exchange Traded Funds (“ETFs”), Options and Mutual Funds. Some of these products may to an ex-tent be traded OTC and hence are not covered by this policy.

Objectives

This policy provides an overview of how our firm executes orders on behalf of clients, the factors that can affect the timing of execution and the way in which market volatility plays  part in handling orders when buying or selling a financial instrument.
Where our firm provides a quote to a client or negotiates the terms of an Over the Counter (“OTC”) transaction with our firm as counterparty, our firm will normally not be acting on the client’s behalf. In these situations, our firm will not owe a duty of best execution under the Rules, and this policy will therefore not apply. This policy does not create any obligation on our firm that it does not have under the Rules.
This policy applies to Anchoria Investment and Securities Limited execution of orders on behalf of retail clients and professional clients as defined by the Rules
Upon acceptance of a client order and when there is no specific client instruction regarding the execution method, our firm will execute an order in accordance with this policy.

Anchoria Investment & Securities Limited Approach To Best Execution

When executing orders our firm will take all reasonable steps to obtain the best possible result under the circumstances for the client taking into account price, costs, speed, likelihood of execution and settlement, size, nature or any other consideration relevant to the execution of the order (“Best Execution”).

When considering the best executing factors, our firm takes into account:

  • the characteristics of the client order
  • the characteristics of the financial instruments that are subject to that order (in relation to OTC financial instruments) and
  • the characteristics of the execution venues to which that order can be directed

We execute orders on behalf of retail clients, Best Execution are determined on the basis of the total consideration paid by the client, unless the objective of execution of the order dictates otherwise. 

When executing When ever there is a specific instruction from or on behalf of a client, our firm will- to the extent possible execute the orders in accordance with the specific instruction. A specific instruction from a client may prevent our firm from taking the steps that it described in this policy to obtain the best possible result for the execution orders.

Trading rules for specific markets may prevent us from following certain client’s instructions.In the event that a client instruction is not complete, our firm will will determine any non-specified components of the execution in accordance with this policy.

Elements Of Best Execution

The procedure for routing determinations is mainly based on four criteria and is regularly reviewed by our firm. Hence to determine the best way to execute an order for a client in our firm takes into consideration:

01. Speed and Likelihood of the Execution

Due to the levels of volatility affecting both price and volume, our firm seeks to provide client orders with the fastest execution reasonably possible although delays may occur

04. Overall Execution Quality

When determining how and where to route or execute an order, investment services firm’s traders draw on extensive day-to-day experience with various markets and market makers, focusing on prompt and reliable execution.

02. Price Improvement and Overall Consideration of Costs

Orders are routed to NSE XGen where opportunities for price improvement exist. The criteria to be used by market centers include: 

  • automatically matching incoming market and limit orders to pending limit orders;
  • crossing transactions where price improvement can be offered to one or both sides of the trade.

03.   Size Improvement

In routing orders, we seek markets that provide the greatest liquidity and thus potential for execution of large orders. We also seek opportunities for client orders to benefit from order-size commitments offered by third parties.

Execution Of Client Orders

Anchoria investment and Securities Limited uses automated systems to route and execute client orders. When a client order is received by us, it is routed to the execution venue that our firm considers to generally provide the Best Execution or kept in house for products which we trade against its own proprietary desk (e.g. some OTC products). Our firm may execute orders outside regulated markets and multilateral trading facilities.

For instruments admitted to trading and official listing on a regulated market or stock ex-change (i.e. Bonds, Stocks, Options and ETFs), our firm routes orders to the exchange
For OTC products NASD Platform, our firm will trade (as principal) against its own proprietary desk.
Prices of non-listed units in Mutual Funds (e.g. unit trusts or open-ended investment companies) are set at a future “valuation point” and the exact price of such units are therefore not known in advance. Our firm will seek to execute orders of such units, be it subscriptions or redemptions, at a price closest to the amount in the client’s order as well as in accordance with the fund manager’s rounding rules.
The client’s orders may at the discretion of our firm be aggregated without orders, orders of any of our firm’s associates and/or other clients. Furthermore, we may split the client’s orders as well as aggregate orders before executing such. Orders will only be aggregated or split where our firm reasonably believes it to be unlikely that the aggregation or split generally will be detrimental to any client. Aggregation and split may in single occasions result in the client obtaining a less favorable price than if the client’s orders had been executed separately or together, as applicable. Aggregated orders placed by an Introducing Broker are allocated to clients in accordance with a predetermined allocation key. We settle any partially filled orders pro rata at an average price.

Effects On Order Execution

Clients should be aware of the following risks associated with volatile markets, especially at or near the open or close of the standard trading session:

Execution at a substantially different price from the quoted bid or offer or the last re-ported sale price at the time of order entry, as well as partial executions or execution of large orders in several transactions at different prices.
Opening prices that may differ substantially from the previous day’s close.
Locked (the bid equals the offer) and crossed (the bid is higher than the offer) markets, which prevent the execution of client trades.
