RTS 28 Annual Best Execution Disclosure 2019
BET and BTL in most cases, transact on an OTC bilateral basis directly as principal rather than executing transactions on a third party venue. The only third party venue used by BET and BTL in 2019 was ICE Futures Europe which is used to execute Block Trades in Commodity derivatives outside the central order book further to specific instructions from clients. Consequently no further detailed qualitative or quantitative analysis is published.
