Best execution refers to the duty of an investment services firm executing orders on behalf of customers to ensure the best execution conditions possible for their customers’ orders.
This applies whether these are orders initiated by the customer or by an investment manager. Under MiFID (the European Markets in Financial Instruments Directive), the criteria for best execution may include price, costs, speed and settlement and delivery procedures.
