At Hantec Markets we consider the execution factors of price, costs, speed and likelihood of execution when assessing the quality of execution. Dependant on the client’s trading style, the products the client trades and the method of their trading, we may consider using specific liquidity providers which are most suited to the client’s profile. For example, one liquidity provider may not offer a product a client wishes to trade, and therefore we use an alternative provider when offering the client pricing.
Whilst Hantec Markets Ltd is independently managed, we are part of the Hantec Group. As part of this group of companies we are majority owned by Hantec (UK) Incorporated. There is no conflict of interest caused by this majority ownership and this has no impact with respect to any execution venues used to execute orders.
Hantec Markets have no specific arrangement with any execution venues regarding payments made or received, discounts, rebates or non-monetary benefits received. There have been no changes to the list of execution venues listed in the firm’s execution policy. Regardless of how a client is classified with Hantec Markets, should it be retail or professional, the order execution quality see no differential between the classifications. As the statistics show, the quality of execution in terms of speed, cost, price and likelihood of execution is in line with our high expectations.
In line with our Execution Policy, we apply price, cost, speed and likelihood of execution, and quantity as the criteria to which we give precedence above all others when we assess quality of execution. Should a client wish to trade a particular product that requires us to use an alternative provider, we will continue to act in line with our quality of execution assessment.
In order to produce this information we have integrated our price and execution data to an analytical software system that analyses all our trades and execution factors against the underlying market price at that time to ensure our assessment of execution quality is in line with our expectation, client expectation and our Execution Policy.
