Hantec Global Ltd. is authorized and regulated by the Financial Services Commission (“FSC”) and under the Code of Business Conduct issued by the FSC, we are obliged to act in our clients’ best interests and, other than in certain circumstances described below, where we execute or arrange the execution of orders, we are required to take all reasonable steps to obtain the best possible result for our clients(known as delivering ‘’best execution’’) and to establish and implement an order execution policy and related procedures to allow us to do so.
We have internal policies and procedures governing how we will act when we execute orders for our clients. We continually strive to provide the best possible level of service to all of our clients. Consequently, our policies and procedures are under constant review and may be revised at any time without prior notice.
We deal with clients as principal and not as agent. This means that we are the execution venue and so clients transact directly with us and not on an exchange or another external market. Trades that clients undertake with us are non-transferable, which means that if a client opens a position with us, they must close the position with us.
We apply the following execution factors:
The Price – While we always aim to act in the best interest of our clients we cannot guarantee that the price at which we permit clients to execute a trade will be better than elsewhere. Prices on Currency products are sourced from independent third party providers who supply liquidity to the OTC Currency market.
The Cost – We add a mark-up to the prices from our liquidity providers and publish the ‘’marked-up’’ prices that include our income. We will base the closing price of the relevant currency for the purposes of margin requirements and any balance credits/debits.
Speed and Likelihood of Execution – Trades may be executed on our platform or by telephone or other forms of communication. Screen and telephone trades are subject to liquidity and market conditions and so we cannot guarantee that a client’s trade will be opened or closed instantaneously. The speed and likelihood of execution is also subject to software, hardware and telecom/data line use and we cannot guarantee that this will not be free of interruption of suspension.
Quantity – We set the minimum and maximum quantity that clients may place on a trade. This is influenced by market conditions and firm policy and changes from time to time.
When arranging a transaction or executing a client order, we will take into account the following criteria for determining the relative importance of the execution factors referred to above:
Dealing with Client Orders
Subject to market conditions a client order will be executed at our price or very close to our price. The price clients receive at execution is not guaranteed as the market may widen, become very volatile or even gap. There is no guarantee that a client’s order will be executed.
If clients have any particular requirements as to how we act when dealing with them, then they must let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them. However, clients should be aware that where they give us specific instructions that are incompatible with our normal order execution policies and procedures, their specific instructions will take precedence.
This may result in a different outcome that would have been achieved had our normal policies and procedures been followed and we will not be required to deliver best execution in respect of the aspects of a client order which are covered by their specific instructions.
Our normal policies and procedures take account of the costs that we would incur in transacting business. Transactions may be subject to additional charges. Where this applies, we will notify clients of the applicable charges before their order is executed.
Our Duty of Best Execution
When executing orders for Currency and Bullion or other OTC financial derivative products, we will take all reasonable steps to achieve the best possible outcome taking into account our Execution Policy and specific instructions received from our clients.
Our policy cannot provide a guarantee, however, that the price at which we permit our customers to execute an order will always be better than one which is or might have been available elsewhere.
Achieving ‘Best Execution’
To achieve the best possible result, we will take a number of factors into account, including price, costs, speed of execution, likelihood of execution and settlement, size, nature of the order or any other factors relevant to the execution of that order.
We will use our own commercial experience and judgment in determining the relative importance of these factors, however, we have rated prices as the most important factor for obtaining the best possible result.
We will review this policy at regular intervals and will monitor and review external pricing sources. Any updated policy together with a general notice informing customers of such change will be promptly posted to the website as and when this policy is materially updated. You agree that the posting of a revised policy electronically on the website as constituting actual notice to you.
