AUSTIN, TEXAS September 13, 2017S3 (“the Company”), a financial services software company providing innovative solutions to monitor and analyze trade execution for options, fixed income securities, and equities, today announced an expanded partnership with BOX Market LLC (“BOX”).  The Company will now provide BOX with additional, proprietary analytics solutions built upon insights garnered during the firms’ three-year-plus engagement.

S3 has created a portal specifically for BOX that enables the exchange to examine its participant’s trading activity and execution quality at a more in-depth level.  The Company has been providing BOX with execution quality reports since 2014, reports that are critical as they provide participants with deeper insight into the execution quality of their options orders transacted with BOX.  Building on the two firms’ trusted partnership, the new portal created by S3 provides BOX with more detailed information that enables it to help customers maximize their trading potential.  S3 will continue to advance its data reporting solutions for BOX in order to further simplify its back office reporting operations, as well as to provide a layer of intuitive monitoring so that BOX can determine its competitive position in the marketplace.

Mark Davies, CEO of S3, commented on today’s news, “We are excited to have expanded our relationship with BOX by providing even more advanced analytics and reporting solutions.  BOX shares our commitment to enhancing transparency in financial markets, and I believe that the unique insights we provide for the firm furthers our mission of improving trust in the securities industry.  These solutions are especially critical as regulatory entities increase their oversight of all market participants, including exchanges.”

Ed Boyle, CEO of BOX Market LLC, commented, “The new portal that S3 created for BOX allows us to quickly and easily create reports that offer critical insights into the execution quality of trading activity taking place on our exchange.  This tool integrates seamlessly into our existing systems and facilitates analysis of participant data at a much more detailed level.  We are very pleased with the portal and use it every day, and have enjoyed deepening our longstanding relationship with S3, which shares our commitment to market efficiency and transparency.”

S3 provides exchanges and other market participants with analytical solutions that offer unmatched insights into execution quality and order flow, facilitate regulatory compliance, streamline operations, and more.  Among other recent and major enhancements to its product offerings, the Company launched its Options Best Execution 2.0 platform in May 2017.  This cutting-edge software offering enables clients to attain more detailed insights on their options orders by analyzing a multitude of different market scenarios, including the ability to compare volume, available liquidity, and spread size.  Additionally, S3 has incorporated midpoint and spread separation analysis into the platform, as well as improved “tweener” reporting, intelligence that is critical for users to more effectively navigate today’s often convoluted market structure and determine the true execution quality of their orders.

S3 Enables Compliance with Recently Amended IIROC Best Execution Regulations in Canada

AUSTIN, TEXAS August 17, 2017S3 (“the Company”), a financial services software company providing innovative solutions to monitor and analyze trade execution for fixed income securities, equities, and options, today released a statement regarding the Company’s data analytics solutions and the recent updates to best execution regulations issued by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC).

IIROC recently amended its Rules Notice 16-0233, Notice 16-0234 and Rule 3300 to consolidate best execution requirements for broker-dealers, including as they pertain to these firms’ obligations to provide clients with fair pricing of over-the-counter (OTC) securities.  The amended regulations explicitly require broker-dealers to establish, maintain, and ensure compliance with written policies and procedures that are reasonably designed to achieve best execution when acting for a client.

Mark Davies, CEO of S3, commented, “The amendments recently issued by IIROC are indicative of the continued push by regulatory entities in all major financial markets to hold firms accountable for attaining optimal execution for client orders, in order to promote a more transparent and fairer marketplace.  At S3 we seek to improve trust in the securities industry, and as such we provide customers with unmatched insight into variables impacting execution quality.  As regulatory oversight increases, our Canadian customers can rest assured knowing that they have the tools in place to remain fully compliant.”

Specific aspects of the amendments, which will become effective in January 2018, include:

  • IIROC will now prohibit the practice of sending client orders in bulk to a foreign intermediary for execution outside of Canada without considering other liquidity sources, including those in Canada.
  • Broker-dealers must regularly review the way in which they manage client orders and order flow, in order to ensure that their best execution policies and procedures remain effective.
  • Firms must take order and trade information from all applicable marketplaces into account when determining routing strategies designed to achieve best execution.
  • With respect to OTC securities, IIROC considers a broker-dealer to have achieved best execution when it obtains a price that is fair and reasonable in relation to prevailing market conditions.
  • In the context of an illiquid security, broker-dealers may be required to canvass various parties to source the availability and the price of the specific security.

S3’s solutions, including its Canadian Best Execution Quality Suite and Fixed Income Execution Quality Suite, enable customers to determine the true execution quality of those orders executed on behalf of their clients, as well as their own orders.  The Company’s software platform enables its Canadian clients to meet all requirements of the amended IIROC regulations by providing them with more detailed insights on their orders.  The Fixed Income Execution Quality Suite incorporates data from a variety of sources, including evaluated prices.  Firms utilizing the platform can measure the value of a given bond one to two days before a given trade, at the time the order is executed and the day after the execution occurs.  S3 recently bolstered its fixed income offering with the addition of contra reporting functionality, which provides customers with greater insight into the trading activity of their counterparties.

Mr. Davies concluded, “Per the amended IIROC regulations, firms are expected to ensure that prices provided to its clients are fair and reasonable.  Determining what constitutes ‘fair and reasonable’ can be especially difficult for OTC bond transactions given the relative opacity of the fixed income market.  Our product suite mitigates this issue by enabling customers to conduct deeper analysis on their orders in order to adapt their trading operations to best suit the needs of their clients, ultimately improving trust in the securities markets and streamlining regulatory compliance for our Canadian customers.”
