FINRA study finds performance issues with broker-affiliated ATS routing

first_img Regulators issue new reporting guidance on systems outages Brokerage firms that route a large share of their institutional orders to affiliated alternative trading systems (ATSs) receive lower fill rates and face higher trading costs, according to working paper published Monday from the Office of the Chief Economist of the Washington, D.C.-based Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).The paper analyzes trading activity of 330 million institutional orders in October 2016. Among other things, it finds that brokers that are affiliated with an ATS and send it a large chunk of their orders “tend to receive lower order fill rates and higher execution costs.” Keywords Alternative trading systemsCompanies Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Share this article and your comments with peers on social media CSA seeks easier access to foreign alternative trading systems Facebook LinkedIn Twittercenter_img IOSCO examines market data issues States the paper: “Institutional orders experiencing lower fill rates are associated with higher trading costs when accounting for the lost opportunity costs resulting from unfilled orders.”The study also points out that not all brokers with an affiliated ATS demonstrate a preference for their related trading venues.“The evidence from this study does not support the idea that when a broker sends a high proportion of orders to an affiliated ATS, these venues necessarily offer a lower-cost option that avoids other market participants from learning of an institutional order,” says Jonathan Sokobin, chief economist and senior vice president at FINRA, in a statement.“The difference across brokers in routing decisions, fill rates and trading costs are persistent over time, indicating that past routing behaviour is predictive of future behaviour,” he adds.The study points to the value of better disclosure on broker routing practices in general, the U.S. self-regulatory organization says, and a higher level of scrutiny when brokers show a preference to route orders to affiliated venues.

Oyo-7 Well Results Exceed Pre-Drill Expectations (Nigeria)

first_imgCAMAC Energy, Inc. announced it has been informed by Allied Energy PLC (“Allied”) of preliminary results from the Oyo-7 well in OML 120 offshore Nigeria.The results exceed internal pre-drill expectations. Oyo-7 commenced drilling operations on September 9, 2013. Based on logging while drilling (“LWD”) data, the well encountered gross oil pay of 133 feet (net oil pay of 115 feet) and gross gas pay of 103 feet (net gas pay of 93 feet) in the gas cap from the currently producing Pliocene reservoir, with excellent reservoir quality. The top of the reservoir was penetrated at 5,564 feet. The well is currently drilling to the planned total depth of 8,038 feet and is expected to penetrate the deep Miocene secondary objective.“We are highly encouraged by these preliminary net pay results in the Pliocene reservoir, which is the primary objective of the well,” said Dr. Kase Lawal, Chairman and CEO of CAMAC Energy. “Not only have we confirmed net oil pay results that exceed our internal expectations, but a smaller than expected gas column was also penetrated. As a result, we expect improved oil production from the horizontal section. I am proud of the technical teams at both Allied Energy and CAMAC Energy for our successful drilling operations, and look forward to updating shareholders as we complete drilling and evaluation of the deep Miocene reservoir.”[mappress]Press Release, October 17, 2013last_img read more

Outbound Sourcer – The Most Important HR Hire of 2017

first_imgWhy the most important HR hire of 2017 may be one you haven’t heard of. The birth of the Outbound Sourcer emerged in arguably the most competitive industry for attracting, engaging and hiring talent as tech companies competing aggressively for the best possible engineers and sales professionals.  Since then the role has become essentially across all verticals and I’ve worked closely building strategy for Outbound Sourcers in industries ranging from Energy to Pet Care.  This new breed of talent champion utilizes social media and creates internal talent pools from former silver medalists and key contacts to be proactively filling the next role literally months before it’s available.   Your typical day to day recruiters juggle posting roles to their ATS, screening applicants, working with hiring managers and so on and so on.  What they don’t really do is actually recruit.   That was the entire reason I was hired to build out global sourcing team for a large publicly traded tech company and as you can see from the graph above I never had push back asking for more headcount.  But it all started with my first hire and that’s why hiring and Outbound Sourcer should be your most important hire in 2017. Ask any talent leader at a high-growth company how much of their budget is allocated towards agency spend and you’ll more than likely get a huge groan and then an astounding number.  So how do you put those dollars to better use?  Simple: hire an Outbound Talent Sourcer.  “Attention Talent Leaders:  Define 2017 with one game-changing HR Hire” There’s been a tectonic shift in talent acquisition over the past five years.  Have you felt it? The old days of your best hires coming from applicants ended somewhere around 2012.  Can you still make hires via your ATS, certainly.  Are they the best at their position?  Not really.   Outbound Sourcers sole job is to identify, attract and engage the best passive talent for the company’s hard to fill roles.  If recruiting is classic rock; sourcing is jazz, total skill with a heavy dose of creativity. The best tend to come from recruiters tend to have an agency background but I was able to train a team with several right out of college and hungry to learn.  If you can only make one HR in hire in 2017, hire a…”last_img read more
