COMMISSION MANAGEMENT

MKM’s Commission Management Service offers a comprehensive, intelligent and efficient approach to CCA’s, Soft Dollars and CSA’s, leaving more time for our clients to focus on what matters most, fund performance. MKM’s priority is to eliminate the conflict that occurs between obtaining “best execution” and the need to pay for quality research. Our platform streamlines the administrative process, and our “client first” approach is what separates us from our competitors.

Highlights of the MKM Partners Commission Management platform include:

  • Convenience – Generate CCA/CSA commission credits by trading with MKM’s high touch cash equities desk, equity derivatives, international equities, low touch electronic DMA/algorithmic and program trading desk.
  • Best Execution – Obtain high quality research and brokerage related services while conducting trades purely from a “best execution” perspective.
  • Budget Management – Manage your entire Commission Management budget with MKM’s no-cost, state of the art, web-based technology.
  • Pinpoint Control – Clients can access real-time research commission balances, trade detail and monthly statements, and control the payment process all through a single web-interface.
  • Support – Our dedicated client service and support team works with clients, from set up and documentation to everyday maintenance.
  • Compliant Approach – Deep industry experience helps us to manage all aspects of SEC 28(e) compliance and we provide guidance on any 28(e) related matter.
  • Aggregation – Our virtual aggregation, broker-neutral approach empowers clients to manage their Commission Management business across multiple brokers.
  • Core Business – Commission Management is a very meaningful business for MKM Partners and is an important part of our Global firm-wide suite of services. Our goal each day is to provide maximum value for every commission management share traded.
  • Risk Management – As an agency broker, MKM Partners is not distracted nor exposed to the risks of proprietary trading, making MKM an ideal partner for Commission Management business.
