SIA launch a software tool for verifying and assessing ‘best execution’ requirements in securities transactions, in line with forthcoming compliance requirements under the MiFID.   SIA says its ‘Execution Policy Monitoring for MiFID’ module, will be made available over the SIA-Eagle market abuse and exeuction surveillance platform .. where users will be able to automatically analyse all the transactions carried out across the European financial markets and provide a full audit for customer evidence. The system will also verify compliance with contractual terms agreed with buy-side clients ex-post, as to the implicit and explicit costs for achieving best price in consideration of market impact and opportunity costs – SIA site
