In the interest of transparency, we quantify our clients’ all-in cost of trade execution below.

In July, clients’ total cost of executing and clearing U.S. Reg.-NMS stocks through IB was a net rebate, 0.8 basis points of trade money 2, as measured against a daily VWAP 3 benchmark (0.9 basis points net cost for the rolling twelve months).

The above illustrates that the rolling twelve months’ average all-in cost of a client U.S. Reg.-NMS stock trade was 0.9 basis points.

_________________ Note 1: In connection with our currency diversification strategy, we have determined to base our net worth in GLOBALs, a basket of 14 major currencies in which we hold our equity. The total effect of the currency diversification strategy is reported in Comprehensive Income; the components are reported in (1) Other Income in the corporate segment and (2) Other Comprehensive Income (“OCI”) on the balance sheet. The effect of the GLOBAL on our comprehensive income can be estimated by multiplying the total equity for the period by the change in the U.S. dollar value of the GLOBAL during the same period.

Note 2: Trade money is the total amount of money clients spent or received, including all commissions and fees.

Note 3: Consistent with the clients’ trading activity, the computed VWAP benchmark includes extended trading hours.
