Order Routing and Payment for Order Flow Disclosure
The following statement is provided to you as required by the Securities Exchange Act of 1934:
First and foremost, Public Ventures, LLC’s policy is to provide our customers with the best possible execution available.
Public Ventures does not receive payment for order flow for “held” orders. Such orders are intended to be immediately represented in the market and executed as soon as practicable. For orders that a customer gives to a Public Ventures trader with time and/or price discretion over execution, also known as “not held” orders, PV may receive compensation in the form of liquidity rebates or be charged costs for directing orders to particular broker dealers or market centers for execution.
In deciding where to send an order, PV looks at a number of factors, such as size of order, trading characteristics of the security, favorable execution prices (including the opportunity for price improvement), access to reliable market data, availability of efficient automated transaction processing, and execution cost. Some market centers may execute orders at prices superior to the publicly quoted market in accordance with their rules and practices. Although you can instruct us to send an order to a particular marketplace, our order-routing policies are designed to result in transaction processing that is favorable for you. PV reserves the right to wait for the primary exchange to open before commencing trading in a particular security.
PV makes a reasonable effort to pass through any rebate it receives or cost assessed from order flow activity to the client account. The amount of the compensation depends on the agreement reached with each venue. The source and nature of any compensation received by PV in connection with any transaction is available upon written request of the customer.
For customers introduced by Public Ventures to Interactive Brokers LLC (“IB”) for clearing, Public Ventures directs order flow to IB. Public Ventures does not receive payment for order flow.
IB transmits customer orders for execution to various exchanges or market centers based on a number of factors. These include: size of order, trading characteristics of the security, favorable execution prices (including the opportunity for price improvement), access to reliable market data, availability of efficient automated transaction processing and reduced execution costs through price concessions from the market centers. Certain of the market centers may execute orders at prices superior to the publicly quoted market in accordance with their rules or practices. While a customer may specify that an order be directed to a particular market center for execution, the order-routing policies, taking into consideration all the factors listed above, are designed to result in favorable transaction procession for customers.
For additional information on IB’s order routing and payment for order flow information please see the Interactive Brokers Order Routing and Payment for Order Flow Disclosure.
