AIMR Issues Proposed Guidelines for Best Execution
By Investment Management Practice Group
The Association for Investment Management and Research's Trade Management Task Force has proposed a series of guidelines of recommended best practices for investment management firms regarding the execution of investment trades and management of the trading function. The AIMR Guidelines are intended to ensure that clients receive the highest degree of care regarding trade execution and oversight of the trading function. Recognizing differences in advisory firms, AIMR intentionally made the vague guidelines flexible and adaptable.
