c.        What is the job of a Market Maker?

                                                               i.      Their shareholders.

                                                              ii.      Their clients.

                                                            iv.      Whilst not strictly “responsible to” the regulator the Market Maker has to be able to demonstrate that the obvious conflict of interests arising from this list are dealt with in an appropriate manner, and that no one is especially advantaged or disadvantaged.
