Response to CESR public consultation on Best Execution under MiFID - On the Importance of Transaction Cost Analysis

Response to the CESR's public consultation on best execution under MiFID, EDHEC strongly defend the idea that the analysis of the total net proceeds of financial transactions represent the most important factor for assessing execution quality. But this analysis also represents the most significant conceptual and technical challenge the industry will face in order to consistently monitor execution quality, and therefore allow best execution to become a tangible and measurable objective for investment firms.
