“The facts show that execution quality for retail investors has never been better,” Tomczyk continued. “Costs are lower than ever, spreads have narrowed significantly, liquidity has increased, and execution speed has improved. But it can be better. Just as we are continually seeking to improve our client experience, we as an industry should continue to examine ways in which we can improve our nation’s market structure – without compromising the many improvements that currently exist. We have long been a part of conversations around market structure, representing one of the largest bases of retail investors in the country, and we will continue to do so.”The Company will be sharing its views on this topic and other market structure-related issues when it appears before the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations on Tuesday, June 17, 2014.
