Research and third party non-monetary benefits
The company receives some analysis / research material from a few selected counterparties. The costs for this is covered by the Company's own funds. There may also be minor non-monetary benefits such as shorter market updates, market price data and trading volumes, general non-substantial macro analysis, and third-party conferences and seminars. However, such minor non-monetary benefits do not entail any additional cost to investors, nor do they restrict the Company's ability to act in the interests of investors.
