The Commission’s Work
The Financial Commission manages trader transaction problems, and gives brokers/dealers and providers the opportunity to bring forward disputes in front of industry practitioners. The Commission’s platform certification is a process that creates a benchmark or standard for understanding trading platforms.
The Financial Commission carries out a lengthy review of the key checkpoints that validate the software which include: platform security, platform capacity, instruments and order types, pricing and execution policy, reporting and record keeping as well as the firm’s business continuity/disaster recovery plan.
The platform’s review enables executives at the Financial Commission to make suitable decisions for reviewing claims.
Brokerage firms and providers can benefit from a streamlined process when applying for membership with the Financial Commission, as the organisation itself certifies the platform.
