Divine Capital Markets provides agency only execution for our clients, and we do not take proprietary trading positions. This keeps our interests aligned with those of our clients, minimizing conflicts while maximizing execution quality. We strive to reduce costs and we select executing market centers or counterparties who consistently meet or exceed certain benchmarks for quality. We act only in the best interests of our clients; seeking liquidity through our electronic network and relationships, maintaining anonymity when directed and focusing on achieving best execution.
