Commission Management


Commission Recapture

Abel Noser has been providing Commission Recapture program (CR) services since 1985. Almost every client that recaptures commissions through us also receives our best-of-breed Trade Cost Analysis product that covers all global equity and FX trading.


Our web-based Commission Recapture accounting system makes it simpler than ever to start up a CR program with us. The platform allows you access to your balances and provides a simple approval process for bill approval. It’s all automated and web-accessible.


Commission recapture can play a large role in reducing costs.  We offer the lowest recapture rates on equities, fixed-income and mutual fund investing, for domestic and international trading.

  • Experience-based pre-trade estimates predict costs that are expected to be incurred
  • Real-time trade monitoring and measurement informing our traders of performance metrics
  • Fill level analysis which assists traders in choosing venues, and helping them avoid toxic venues where high-frequency traders might front-run orders
  • Post-trade analytics that compare pre-trade estimate to the post-trade results
  • Post-trade reports that can be delivered intra-day, end of day, weekly, monthly or quarterly.  Users have web access to the data, or can have reports emailed directly.

  • Access to an experienced client services representative to help evaluate data

Abel Noser has developed a proprietary method for managing commission allocations across all trading counterparties.  The innovative process simplifies our clients’ commission management work flow, allowing an easy way to:


  • Allocate commissions: make multiple payments simultaneously
  • Track commission payments: monitor balances, approve bills and adjust payments
  • Perform T+1 trade reconciliation
  • Generate reports: export as an Excel, PDF or print directly to hard copy
