Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 2, 2007
NorthPoint Trading Partners LLC, a premier prime brokerage and fund services company, has today announced that it has begun offering its clients the ability to utilize NorthPoint's world class trading and execution services to pay for a wide variety of global research services through Commission Sharing Arrangements (CSA's).
CSA's are a way to unbundle execution costs from research costs. They are seen by many as a more transparent way for asset management companies to pay for 3rd party research while upholding their fiduciary responsibility as far as best execution.
"Having built our reputation as a premier execution desk, we are pleased to be able to offer our clients the ability to utilize our services to pay for 3rd party research. CSA's are a very efficient, inexpensive, and transparent way for managers to pay for independent research while maintaining their comfort level that they are getting the very best execution services available." said Douglas Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of NorthPoint Trading Partners, LLC.
