Publisher of specialist B2B magazines serving the financial services sector.


Best Execution offers an in-depth analysis into the major trends that are shaping the financial services industry as well as providing a more detailed insight into the technology driving new products and services being developed to meet these challenges.


Best Execution reviews the issues that impact the achievement of best execution* throughout the trading lifecycle (from pre-trade to trade execution to post-trade), and reports on the cutting-edge technology solutions and services that are needed to meet these requirements.


Best Execution is read by around 7,000 key decision-makers in both buy-side and sell-side institutions, mainly across the Northern hemisphere, and provides an ideal marketing channel to providers of solutions and services to the sell-side as well as the fund management community that is increasingly developing its own in-house expertise; the investment banks and brokers that service the buy-side; and the trading venues, platforms, systems and market infrastructures that facilitate trading.


*Best Execution coverage is largely driven by the impact of regulation and launched in 2008 on the coat-tails of MiFID I. Article 21's definition of best execution was adopted to frame its focus:- the directive introduces the principle that all financial services firms carrying out transactions on their clients' behalf: "must take all reasonable steps to obtain the best possible result, taking into account price, costs, speed, likelihood of execution and settlement, size, nature or any other consideration relevant to the execution of the order."
