RTS 28, Article 3(3) Reference
An explanation of the relative importance the firm gave to the execution factors of price, costs, speed, likelihood of execution or any other consideration including qualitative factors when assessing the quality of execution.
A description of any close links, conflicts of interests, and common ownerships with respect to any execution venues used to execute orders
There are no close links, conflicts of interests or common ownership with respect to any of the counterparties used to execute orders.
A description of any specific arrangements with any execution venues regarding payments made or received, discounts, rebates or non-monetary benefits received.
Global Shares does not have any arrangements with execution venues other than their standard execution terms and commissions with brokers.
An explanation of the factors that led to a change in the list of execution venues listed in the firm’s execution policy, if such a change occurred.
GSESL does not undertake direct market access. GSESL utilises brokers to access market venues therefore this is inapplicable.
An explanation of how order execution differs according to client categorisation, where the firm treats categories of clients differently and where it may affect the order execution arrangements.
Global Shares does not differentiate on client category when executing client orders.
An explanation of whether other criteria were given precedence over immediate price and cost when executing retail client orders and how these other criteria were instrumental in delivering the best possible result in terms of the total consideration to the client.
In some instances, liquidity of the security is taken into consideration when executing the order and therefore the immediate price and cost may be considered in the context of obtaining the best execution.
An explanation of how the investment firm has used any data or tools relating to the quality of execution, including any data published under Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 201575 [RTS 27]
Global Shares receives and reviews the best execution reports provided by the executing brokers on a monthly basis and through the support of a third-party provider, Steeleye, Global Shares, reviews any Best Execution exceptions, as and when they arise.
Where applicable, an explanation of how the investment firm has used output of a consolidated tape provider established under Article 65 of Directive 2014/65/EU
