Best execution is the achievement to provide clients with the best possible outcome for their transactions. Investment Firms need to take all necessary and sufficient steps to obtain the best possible result for the execution of the client orders, having due regard to the wider market in any relevant instrument.
“When establishing its execution policy in accordance with Article 27(4) of Directive 2014/65/EU, an investment firm should determine the relative importance of the factors mentioned in Article 27(1) of that Directive, or at least establish the process by which it determines the relative importance of these factors, so that it can deliver the best possible result to its clients.” – Recital 99 – DR 2017/565
The execution process must be reflected in an execution policy, which must specify the execution venues, and, where derivatives are concerned, must address and distinguish between Exchange Traded products and Over-The-Counter (OTC) products.
Best Execution as part of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive Recast (MiFID II) aims to strengthen investor protection by making markets more efficient and transparent. In April 2018 the first set of reporting was delivered by firms.
