Triad Securities Corp. (“Triad”) is a broker-dealer which executes customer orders as agent and receives remuneration for performing these execution services. In an effort to seek best execution, Triad routes client orders to national securities exchanges and other broker-dealers (venues or market centers). Based upon the fee schedule of those venues, certain market centers assess charges/fees for orders that take liquidity from their books and offer credits/rebates on a per share basis for orders that provide liquidity to their books (i.e. the maker/taker model). In some cases, it is possible that the credits/rebates offered by a market center to a broker-dealer to which Triad routes customer orders may exceed the charges/fees assessed over a period to that broker-dealer; such cases constitute payment for order flow. At times these destinations may share a portion of these payments with Triad. This does not affect Triad’s policy to route customer orders to the trading center where it believes clients will receive the best execution, taking into account price, reliability, market depth, quality of service, speed and efficiency. The trading centers that share a portion of their payments may provide the opportunity for execution of orders at prices better than the National Best Bid or National Best Offer.
