Best Execution Report

Part 1: Top five entities used for the transmission or placing of investment orders

Retail clients are recommended our service “discretionary managed model portfolio solutions” via our own financial intermediaries (Financial Advisers).

Where we send investment applications or orders on our clients’ behalf to third parties (for example, to buy or sell investment holdings), we make every effort to ensure the best possible result for our clients. This is referred to as best execution. We may transmit or place the order via a third party platform (an online investment administration service), directly with a fund manager or with a stockbroker, to execute the order.

We’re obliged to disclose on an annual basis the top five firms that we send our client orders to.  As a Discretionary Management Firm, Tavistock Private Client only sends orders to three firms, therefore there are fewer than five venues to report.

All investment orders are sent to the above platforms who, in turn place the order in compliance with their own Best Execution policies. The platforms best execution policies can be sourced on their public websites.
