Although Floor Broker A places trading, it must abandon the transaction and record as if Broker B had done the trading. The transaction is recorded as if broker B had done the trading, although Floor Broker A did the trading. In the case of a cash equity, the hedge fund looks for a fixed indication from an executive broker of the price of a cash capital, but does not act in the same way: “Okay, sir: Keep this idea” and runs to its first preferred broker, to whom it orders to take a swap at the exact price indicated by the executive broker. Draw the PB`s attention to the profitable broker-executor, sitting on the phone and holding his thoughts, all disguised and walking nowhere. Giving up is no longer a common business practice in financial markets. Giving up was more common before the development of e-commerce. In the age of parquet trading, one broker may not be able to put it on the floor, and another broker would place trading as a kind of proxy. Overall, conducting a trade on behalf of another broker is usually part of a waiver agreement agreed upon in advance. Agreements concluded in advance usually contain provisions on OTC exchange procedures as well as compensation. Give-up trades are not standard practices, so payment is not clearly defined without prior agreement.
Documented under the FIA`s standard Giveup documentation, which is available free of charge worldwide, here. There is a client version and a commercial version of the electronic give up system (EGUS). The ETD-Give-up is the only one to act as a real exchange between the client and the executive broker, then a novation of this trading from the client to the clearing broker, where a back-to-back transaction between the clearing broker and the client comes to life. In practical theory, abandonment is an agreement by which a hedge fund “abandons” an ongoing transaction, whether it is a derivative or a cash trade, that it has executed to its primeur broker (or, coughing, has implied that it is “very interested” in execution) accepting the hedge fund`s contract with the executive broker, whether it makes an economically identical settlement transaction with the hedge fund. The FIA Law and Compliance Division regularly publishes and updates standard agreements governing the eventual icing process. FIA Tech, meanwhile, manages Accelerate DocsTM (former give-up electronics system (EGUS)) which allows brokers, traders and clients to execute standard give up agreements electronically. Companies can use the model agreements either manually on paper or electronically in Accelerate DocsTM. The standard Trader and Customer Give-Up agreements are available for download here.
