Bacall Conniff and Associates Review: History of the Restaurant Industry

Have you been curious on how restaurants began? Or how its birth brought a major impact on anyone's lives? Restaurants have been around in some form for most of the human civilization, the evolution of this type of business brought a revolutionary effect on the family, industrialization and in the economics at a global level.

Back in the days, people who established permanent homes usually make their own food: farming and domesticating animals. When people became knowledgeable and skilled to earn a living, it became inevitable for them to designate the home-based preparation of food to an individual or enterprise. Restaurants were born with that need to simply save a lot of time and to escape the tedious routine of preparing meals all day. Instead of the staple meals we commonly eat, we can now go for a certain food we desire presented in the menu. Also, we can now purchase continental food and have it delivered at our homes.

Numerous food varieties came out with the increase of people going into this line of business. Hamburgers, doughnuts, and even the brewed coffee drink cause the growth of restaurant chains especially in Singapore making it a multi-billion business worldwide. Restaurants changed not just the economic structure of the world but also the lifestyle of people generally. Today, a lot of working people rarely cook at home and simply purchase food outside. Some families on weekends go on food trips to neighboring and foreign cities for gustatory adventures.

However, restaurants particularly fast food outlets brought adverse effect in people’s health. These commercial food establishments cater unhealthy foods just to make money. But with the continuous growth of wellness and fitness industry, more and more restaurants now offer fresh, healthy and delicious options from their menu. This proves that restaurants will certainly stay to provide support to every individuals crave for good and delicious food at any time of the day.

The highly skilled professionals of Bacall Conniff Business Advisors will give entrepreneurs an excellent accounting and financial service to help the restaurant industry strive in the global economy.

ORDER EXECUTION POLICY FOR PROFESSIONAL CLIENTS
1. Introduction
The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) came into force on 1st November 2007. One of its requirements is that BGC implement a ‘Best Execution Policy’. Information on the BGC Best Execution Policy is set out below.

2. Scope
The BGC Best Execution Policy applies when BGC executes orders or receives and transmits orders on your behalf.

BGC will be executing orders on your behalf where you legitimately rely on us to protect your interests in relation to pricing or other aspects of the transaction that may be affected by how BGC executes the order. For example this will be the case when BGC:

executes an order by dealing as agent;
executes an order by dealing as riskless principal on your behalf; and
“works” an order on your behalf.

BGC will not be executing orders on your behalf (and will not therefore owe a duty of best execution) where we publish a quote or provide a “request for quote” service and you transact with us on the basis of that quote.

3. The Quality of Execution
When executing orders on your behalf in relation to financial instruments, we will take all reasonable steps to achieve what is called “Best Execution” of your orders. This means that we will have in place a policy and procedure designed to obtain the best possible execution result for your order.

We will take into consideration a range of different factors such as price, the cost of the transaction, the need for timely execution, the liquidity of the market, the size of the order and the nature of the financial transaction. We will also take into account your understanding and experience of the market in question, your dealing profile, the nature of the dealing service you require of us and the specific and general instructions given to us by you which may prioritise how we are to execute your orders.

In the absence of specific instructions from you, we will exercise our own discretion in determining factors we need to take into account for the purpose of providing you with Best Execution.

Our commitment to provide you with Best Execution does not mean that we owe you any fiduciary responsibilities over and above the specific regulatory obligations placed upon us or as may be otherwise contracted between us.

4. Exemptions from Best Execution
There are certain circumstances where the Best Execution obligation does not apply:

Eligible Counterparties
If you are classified as an Eligible Counterparty the rules relating to Best Execution do not apply.

Market Practices in OTC markets
In the wholesale OTC derivative and fixed income markets in which we operate it is normal practice for our clients to approach a number of different brokers and dealers for quotes. Clients then make their own decision to trade based on these quotes. In these circumstances there is no expectation between the parties that BGC is acting ‘on behalf’ of the client, and therefore Best Execution does not apply.

Name Passing Transactions
When we act in a name passing (or name give-up) capacity we are receiving and transmitting clients’ orders. However, as we are not receiving and transmitting clients’ orders for execution, the requirements in respect of Best Execution do not apply.

Specific Instruction
When you give us a specific instruction in relation to your order, or any particular aspect of your order, including an instruction for your trade to be executed on a particular venue, we will execute the order in accordance with your instructions. In following your instructions we will be deemed to have taken all reasonable steps to have provided you with the best possible result for the aspect of the order to which the specific instruction relates.

Please be aware that any specific instructions from you may prevent BGC from taking steps that it has designed and implemented to obtain the best possible result in respect of the elements covered by those instructions.

In addition when you place an order on a multilateral trading facility (MTF), the best execution provisions of MiFID will not apply to the operator of the MTF as your order will be classified as a specific instruction.

Although the Best Execution rules do not apply in the above circumstances, we will still continue to act in your best interests and provide you with the same high standard of service which we apply to all client orders.

5. Execution Factors
We will have regard to the following factors when taking steps to obtain the best possible result when executing your orders:
• price
• costs
• speed of execution
• likelihood of execution
• speed of settlement
• likelihood of settlement
• size of the order
• nature of the order
• any other consideration relating to the execution of the order

We will take into account the following criteria when determining the relative importance of the above factors:
• the characteristics of the client
• the characteristics of the order
• the characteristics of the financial instrument subject to the order
• the characteristics of the order execution venues to which that order can be directed

When executing orders on your behalf, the relative importance that we assign to the factors in providing you with Best Execution is in most cases price followed by speed and likelihood of execution. The other executing factors will then be determined on the basis of discussions with you and on market conditions which may be subject to sudden change.

6. Execution Venues
Execution venues (sources of liquidity) will be selected on the basis that the venue is likely to provide the best possible result for the order. These will include:
• Regulated markets
• Market makers or other liquidity providers
• Multilateral trading facilities (MTFs)

Some client orders will therefore be executed on venues not deemed to be either Regulated Markets or MTFs, for example when an order is executed through BGC’s client base. You are required to give your express consent to enable us to execute orders on your behalf in this manner. Please ensure that you return the Client Acknowledgment and Consent slip.

BGC will assess on a regular basis the quality of the execution afforded by these venues on which we execute your orders and whether we need to change any execution arrangements.

We will take steps so that we do not structure or charge commissions in a way which will discriminate unfairly between execution venues.

Please also note that, as a regulated market will charge exchange fees which reflect the quality of its execution facilities, we have to price the cost of our own business model and the utilisation of our capital to support our dealing with you (including carrying the risk of those dealings e.g. credit risk) as part of our assessment of the quality of execution offered to you.

7. Monitoring the Best Execution Policy
We will continually monitor the effectiveness of the policy. We will review annually, or whenever a material change occurs, the quality of execution afforded and whether we need to change our execution arrangements. This policy will be posted on our website and you are advised to review the website from time to time for any material changes.

8. General Consent
There is a requirement to obtain your prior consent to this order execution policy. If we receive an order from you on or after 1 November 2007, you will have deemed to have given your consent to this policy.
