Best execution has always been a part of UBS's best practice. On 3rd January 2018, the new EU Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) has come into force. We have therefore reviewed our execution service to ensure that it meets the MiFID II standards on best execution (EU) 2017/576, WpHG §82.

In accordance with the WpHG §82 (9) and "Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/576"RTS 28 we are publishing the top 5 execution venue reports for executed orders and for orders placed for execution with other entities under Art. 65 (6) "Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/565" we are publishing the top 5 firm reports for transmitted orders.
Furthermore you will find a summary of the analysis and conclusions we draw from our detailed monitoring of the quality of execution obtained on the execution venues where we executed and transmitted client orders in the previous year.
Any questions? please contact your UBS client advisor.
UBS would like to notify RTS 27 Quality of Execution report users that, given the complexity and immaturity of the reporting process and the very high volumes of data involved, there are a number of data quality issues in the reports. In particular the data sets for FX are not fully complete and certain data attributes may not be accurate in all cases (e.g. cost data for some FX products) or may have been omitted where they are potentially misleading (e.g. inconsistent timestamps). UBS is working to improve the quality of subsequent reports.
Note that some of the files are very large and have been compressed with GZIP software. We would recommend uncompressing/extracting them using GZIP on a Linux/Unix platform.
