Plum is committed to treating customers honestly, transparently and in the best interest of our customers.
This Order Handling and Best Interest Policy (“Policy”) provides information to customers of Plum (references to "Plum", "us", "our" and/or "we" means Plum Money CY Limited) on when, where and how we will treat your orders when received and transmitted for execution.
The purpose of this Policy is to set out Plum’s approach to meeting our customer best interest and order handling obligations by setting the methods by which we take all sufficient steps to obtain the best possible results when acting on their behalf.
This Policy sets out our execution model and our overarching approach to overseeing execution, including the execution factors considered. In addition, the Policy sets out the key risks to best execution and the governance relevant to the monitoring and oversight of this Policy.
Through the Plum App, Plum offers its customers execution access to US stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) and the Nasdaq Stock Market (“NASDAQ”). Plum receives the order from the customer through the Plum App and transmits the order to our third-party broker for execution.
Plum utilises a third-party broker, Alpaca Securities LLC (“Alpaca”), a US broker dealer registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) and the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (”SIPC”). Alpaca has relationships with multiple third party brokers that it can access for the purpose of directing orders in securities to particular market centres for execution and as such has the capacity to achieve best execution.
Under no circumstances will we act in any other capacity and a transaction will arise between you and Alpaca.
Details on how the Alpaca executes its orders can be obtained in the Alpaca Customer Agreement , https://files.alpaca.markets/disclosures/library/AcctAppMarginAndCustAgmt.pdf.
Through the Plum App, Plum offers its customers execution access to Money Market Fund (MMF) which is the BlackRock ICS Euro Government Liquidity Fund issued by BlackRock (Netherlands) B.V. which is authorised and regulated by the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (trade register no. 17068311 and license no. 12014230).
Plum receives the order from the customer through the Plum App and transmits the order to the MMF Manager for execution. The MMF Manager is BlackRock (Luxembourg) S.A. which is responsible for the day-to-day management of the MMF, either directly or by way of delegation.
Details of the MMF Managers and the executing broker’s Execution and Order Placement Policy is available here.
We will not execute any orders (either stock or MMF) that you submit via the Plum App, but rather will transmit orders for stocks to our third party broker Alpaca for execution or onward transmission by Alpaca to market centres or other third party brokers, or for MMFs to the MMF Manager BlackRock.
Whilst we are not ultimately responsible for execution of orders, we do have an obligation to take all sufficient steps to obtain the best result for our customers in transmitting orders to our third party broker.
Our primary obligation is to ensure that our customers’ orders are received and transmitted to Alpaca and/or the MMF Manager promptly and fairly. Unless instructed otherwise by the customer or where prevailing market conditions prevent us from doing so, all orders will be transmitted to Alpaca and/or the MMF Manager sequentially and promptly in accordance with our order handling process.
Plum cannot guarantee that the best execution is achieved for each and every trade. Plum’s best execution approach is focused on achieving the best possible results on a consistent basis, and not merely best execution for an individual order.
Orders for execution in US-listed securities on NYSE or NASDAQ are transmitted to Alpaca. Orders for full shares of a security will be executed by Alpaca, as agent, through any of their third party execution brokers or venues they interact with. Orders for fractions of a security will be executed by Alpaca, as principal. Where your order includes both a whole share and fraction of a share, it will be executed in a mixed capacity by Alpaca. Alpaca has a system in place with regards to its fractional shares and listed securities arrangements that aims to ensure that its customers obtain best execution and/or benefits from price improvements.
In all cases, Alpaca commits to execute at the National Best Bid or Offer (“NBBO”) as of the time of your order, for all whole share and fractional share components of a transaction, in line with its best execution objective.
Orders for execution in MMF will take place directly with the MMF Manager.
Under normal market conditions you should expect a market order to be fully executed. Partial order execution may occur in the event there are not enough shares to fill your order or due to unexpected technical reasons in which case the unexecuted part of your stock order will be cancelled.
For stock orders we do not aggregate a customer’s orders with those of any other customers. Although, Alpaca may, when it considers it necessary and in our customers’ best interests, aggregate (i.e. combine together) multiple orders. You should be aware that aggregating orders in this way may be to your disadvantage. Because your investment may be bought or sold alongside the shares of other customers, the price obtained may not be the same as if it had been an individual order.
For MMF orders we will be routinely aggregating all client buy orders and all client sell orders, respectively for submission before the cut-off time. The orders to the MMF Manager will be submitted in Plum’s name.
We will carry out transmission of orders as promptly as possible, or as otherwise set out in the relevant terms and conditions, unless the characteristics of the order or prevailing market conditions make this impracticable. In accordance with our processes we will inform customers about any material difficulty relevant to the proper carrying out of orders promptly upon becoming aware of the difficulty.
Plum has various arrangements in place to review, monitor and oversee the standards of execution received by Alpaca or the MMF Manager and their counterparties.
In seeking the best possible result for the customers, Plum applies an order handling process that is structured around order initiation, order decision, execution to final settlement.
Plum takes all sufficient steps to achieve the best possible results for its customer by verifying that Plum’s order handling arrangements work well throughout the different stages of the order routing and execution by its selected third party broker and MMF Manager.
Taking all sufficient steps” includes order execution arrangements to ensure intended outcomes can be successfully achieved on an ongoing basis. It includes taking sufficient steps in overseeing that the third-party broker and MMF Manager that Plum uses for onward routing has the necessary arrangements in place to allow Plum to comply with its Policy, taking into account the execution criteria and execution factors.
Plum has identified a three step process for designing and maintaining an infrastructure design to achieve best execution for its customers.
Design: The design process is an ongoing process involving the continual review of execution arrangements made by Plum to deliver the best possible outcome for its customers and making enhancing arrangements as necessary. Matters relating to the design process are discussed within Plum’s governance arrangements relevant to best execution.
Implementation: The approved execution arrangements are implemented using routing technology and execution partnerships with third-party brokers, MMF managers and direct execution venue connection, as may be relevant. The execution arrangements are then subject to an ongoing review process which is done by ongoing monitoring of execution performance.
Updating: Any issues arising from the ongoing review process and/or monitoring of market structure developments are escalated, discussed and reviewed within Plum’s governance arrangements relevant to best execution.
Best execution is the duty that Plum owes the customer to take all sufficient steps to obtain the best possible result when receiving and transmitting orders for execution on the customer's behalf. In doing this we take into consideration the following execution factors:
The execution factors are considered in light of the execution criteria by assessing their relative weighting in light of elements that could influence the outcome of the execution and therefore the outcome for the customer.
In determining importance given to execution factors Plum will take into account relevant execution criteria and market conditions including (but not limited to):
In assessing the execution factors and the weighting of the criteria it is considered that in most instances priority should be given to the execution factor ‘price’ and ‘cost’. In certain circumstances Plum may determine that the speed and likelihood of execution may take precedence over immediate price and cost factors if these other factors are instrumental in delivering the best possible result. This may be the case for example for large customer orders in illiquid shares.
Customer fees and commissions are pre-agreed as per Plum’s fee model. As such, customers are not directly exposed to additional costs during the order handling and execution process. Both ex-ante and ex-post costs are made available to customers, and incidental costs and charges to customers such as implicit transaction costs are made available to customers in confirms and statements, including incidental costs and charges to customers such as implicit transaction.
Plum monitors on a regular basis the effectiveness and application of this Policy.
The monitoring of executions and oversight is focused on an overall assessment to determine if the best result was achieved in accordance with this Policy.
Plum will correct any deficiencies identified as part of its monitoring. Plum evaluates the trading execution quality obtained on a periodic ex-ante basis and considers alternative methods designed to improve the execution process.
Generally, Plum's monitoring process will focus on the outcomes that have been achieved for customers and whether these are overall consistently giving customers the best outcome they could have had, given the relevant assessment criteria.
In order to analyse and draw conclusions from monitoring of quality of execution obtained by Alpaca and the MMF Manager, Plum’s monitoring is focused on the overall execution process as well as including identifying executions where trade is executed outside the best bit or offer at the time of the trade or where delays have occurred during the execution process.
The review occurs within Plum's governance arrangements relevant to best execution and includes an overall assessment of whether the execution policies and the arrangements include all sufficient steps that Plum could be taking to achieve best execution of customers' orders.
Once we have transmitted your orders to Alpaca and/or the MMF Manager, we cannot control when and how the Alpaca and/or the MMF Manager will execute your orders. By opening a Stock Investing Account and/or a Plum MMF Investment Account you are deemed to consent to our Order Handling and Best Interests Policy.
These Recurring Buy Transactions Terms & Conditions, along with our General Terms & Conditions, Stock Investing Terms & Conditions and any other documents we provide in relation to our services form a legal agreement between you and Plum.
These Recurring Buy Transactions Terms & Conditions will remain in effect after the initial Recurring Buy Transaction is executed in full and until you cancel your Recurring Buy Transaction using app settings in your Plum Stock Investing Account.
You can easily cancel any scheduled buy orders by tapping the Recurring Buy Order card on the instrument selection screen. This will open up the Order Details Screen. Here you can tap the red button that says “Cancel”.
By setting up a Recurring Buy Transaction, you authorise us to automatically create a Buy Order for you under the Stock Investing Terms & Conditions without any other consultation, consent or approval.
You can set up a Recurring Buy Transaction to purchase the company stocks you select, at regular intervals in the future, for the market price at the time your order is executed. Once you click “Confirm”, you authorise your Recurring Buy Transaction to repeat indefinitely and as such it’s important that you regularly review your recurring orders. Plum is not obliged to verify the information and details of the Recurring Buy Transactions provided by you, which shall be assumed accurate and complete.
Plum is not responsible for any losses incurred by you as a result of unauthorised, incorrect or failed transactions due to incomplete or outdated information (including having insufficient funds in your Plum Wallet to complete the transaction).

Plum will reverse any transaction where there is suspicion that the order is erroneous or involving (or has a high risk of involvement in) market abuse, money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud or any other type of financial crime. In this instance, Plum will remain under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a buy order at the same price or under the same terms as the canceled transaction and cannot be held liable for any damages or losses caused due to the actions taken by Plum under these terms.
Plum does not provide personalised investment recommendations, investment advice, tax related advice or other financial related advice of any kind.
