The Broker Ranking Service is a web-based tool which allows Main Market-listed or AIM companies to identify the brokers providing liquidity in their securities. The service is based upon trade reports made directly to the London Stock Exchange and published to the market.
Customers who subscribe to the service will receive a username and password allowing them to log on to the service. Having logged in, several reports are available, including choices of:
- broker rankings by volume traded over the past week, month, or three months
- broker rankings by Customer Business and Total Business
Data is updated on a daily basis, three days after the trade publication date.
In addition to the simple web page presentation, two further options are available for working with the information provided by the service.
For tasks requiring the copying and pasting of the data, such as for historical comparison purposes or to incorporate the information into another document, an option is available to open the report in Excel.
For tasks requiring the presentation in a more formal hard copy form, an option is available to create a PDF document containing the information.
