MiFID II? Unbundling? Best Ex?
On January 3, 2018, MiFID II will go live. While this is a European rule, it has many U.S. institutional investors thinking about how they pay commissions to their brokers.
We wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that Themis Trading has always been 100% focused on best execution. Our institutional agency trading model revolves around being:
- Independent and conflict-free
- Venue and rebate agnostic
- No proprietary trading, no market making, no dark pool ownership
Our traders not only have more than 20 years of experience each but they all understand what it takes to trade on behalf of the buyside. We use a multitude of trading tools and are constantly customizing and updating these tools to help our clients maximize liquidity while minimizing market impact.
In addition to being on the cutting edge of trading technology, we are also one of the most respected voices when it comes to market structure. Since our inception in 2002, we have been advocates for the buyside and continue to represent their voice. We do this through participation in committees such as NOIP and the IEX QMC. We also accomplish this by speaking at events such as the U.S. House Financial Services Committee Hearing on Equity Market Structure.
While MiFID II may be new, best execution is not. We have been providing unbundled execution since 2002 and continue to refine our trading methods to ensure that we keep getting our clients best execution. Give us a call if you would like to learn more.
