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.

Violent movements in the price of foreign exchange or bullion rates may result in action by the market. As a result you may be unable to settle adverse trades. Our staff are unable to guarantee the accuracy of any market predictions (should they offer such predictions) and cannot guarantee a maximum loss that you may suffer.

Conflicts Policy – Introduction

As a financial institution, Hantec Markets Limited (hereafter “HML”) faces actual and potential conflicts of interest from time to time. By identifying the existing and potential conflicts of interest, HML endorses all reasonable steps to establish, implement and maintain an effective conflict of interest policy to prevent any risk that may damage the interests of our customers.

This statement discloses the conflicts of interest you, as an existing or potential customer, might face when engaging in business dealings with HML; the laws and regulations subject to conflicts of interest that HML is required to comply with; and the policy HML adopts for the aim of preventing and managing the conflicts of interest.

Laws and Regulations

Conflicts of interests exist in the financial services industry and the Code of Business Conduct issued by the Mauritius Financial Services Commission recognises that whilst situations of conflict of interests must be avoided, in case a conflict arises, customers should be treated fairly. Furthermore, as a licensee of the Mauritius Financial Services Commission under the Securities Act 2005, HML is required to manage the conflicts so that they do not damage the customers’ interest.

Identification and Examples of Conflicts that might arise

In general, conflicts of interest may be caused by the superior knowledge of employees and the variety of products on offer and may arise between a firm and a customer, or between a customer and another customer.

When a firm provides service to a customer, conflicts of interest may arise in one or more of the following situations when a firm or a relevant person:

  • is likely to make a financial gain, or avoid a financial loss, at the expense of the customer;
  • has an interest in the outcome of a service provided to or a transaction carried out on behalf of the customer, which is different from the customer’s interest in that outcome;
  • has financial or other incentives to favour the interest of another customer(s) over the interests of the customer;
  • carries on the same business as the customer; or
  • receives or will receive from a person other than the customer an inducement, other than standard commission or fee in relation to a service provided to the customer.
  • In respect to HML, the following is the main conflict of interest that may occur when providing services to our customers.

HML’s conflicts of interest policy adopts procedures and measures to manage and control the conflicts of interest identified, including segregation of duties and responsibilities; separate supervision of relevant persons; Personal Account Trading policy, Gifts and Inducement policy, prevention and control of the exchange of information; acting on the best interest of the customers; and in some cases declining to act for a customer or potential customer.
