Terms of Business effective 30 September 2016
Alder Capital DAC, registered office 61 Merrion Square, Dublin 2, is an Investment Firm regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland and is authorised to provide the following investment services:

  • Reception and transmission of orders
  • Execution of orders
  • Investment advice
  • Portfolio Management

Alder Capital provides investments services solely to sophisticated investors who meet the following definitions: ‘PROFESSIONAL CLIENT’ within the meaning of Directive 2004/39/EC,  ‘ELIGIBLE CONTRACT PARTICIPANT’ as defined in Section 1a of the United States Commodity Exchange Act and ‘QUALIFIED ELIGIBLE PERSON’ as defined in CFTC Rule 4.7, and equivalent definitions, where relevant, in other jurisdictions.

 

Conflicts of Interest
We have a conflicts of interest policy in place to ensure that conflicts of interest are identified and avoided or otherwise suitably managed to prevent damage to the clients’ interests. Where we feel that we are unable to ensure, with reasonable confidence, that the risk of damage to a client’s interest can be avoided, we will disclose to the client a description of the conflict in sufficient detail to allow the client to take an informed decision as to whether to proceed with the investment service. In certain circumstances, Alder Capital may refuse to commence, or may terminate, a client relationship, where the conflict cannot be managed effectively. For further details of our conflicts of interest policy, please contact us.

Execution Policy
We have a policy to ensure that we act in accordance with the best interests of our clients when placing orders in financial instruments and we will take all reasonable steps to achieve the best possible result for clients, taking into account the following factors: Price, speed, size, nature, likelihood of execution, likelihood of settlement, costs, the impact on market prices of displaying and placing orders for execution and any other consideration relevant to the execution of the order.

Alder Capital will generally give the highest relative importance to price. However, in some circumstances we may determine that other factors are more important in obtaining the best possible result. Achieving the objective of giving the highest relative importance to price may involve consideration of other factors including, the general direction of the market relative to the order the firm wishes to execute, the likely available liquidity on the different types of execution venues for the particular financial instrument / currency pair in the execution timeframe available, the impact on market prices of the display or execution of an order resulting from a decision to deal and the risks of delayed execution. If, in Alder Capital’s view, there is insufficient liquidity immediately available in the market, Alder Capital may prioritise other factors such as the perceived risk of delayed execution at the time of trading.

A list of the execution venues that we may use is available in our Disclosure Document, which you may obtain by contacting us.

 

Complaints
We have in place a procedure for the handling of complaints which provides that complaints will be appropriately recorded, investigated and resolved. If you have reason to complain about the provision or non provision of a product or service, please contact us using the details on our contacts page, or write to us at our registered address, marking your communication for the attention of the Head of Compliance.
