The Rules are intended to provide investors with certain information regarding order execution and each broker-dealer's order routing practices.

The Reports are not intended to and do not consider all factors relevant to an analysis of a broker’s best execution and order routing practices. As acknowledged by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), other factors may be relevant to evaluating the quality of order execution, including the (1) size of the order, (2) trading characteristics of the security involved, (3) availability of accurate information affecting choices as to the most favorable market center for execution and the availability of technological aids to process such information, and (4) cost and difficulty associated with achieving an execution in a particular market center. Accordingly, the SEC has stated “the statistical information [contained in the Reports] does not create a reliable basis to address whether any particular broker-dealer failed to obtain the most favorable terms reasonably available under the circumstances for customer orders.”

Although the information contained in the Reports is obtained or compiled from sources that we believe reliable, UBS Financial Services does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of the Reports or the validity of their use for any particular purpose.
