Without prejudice to this, the following functions will NOT be considered critical or important:
(a)  The provision to the firm of advisory services and other services which do not form part of the Company’s authorised services & activities, including the provision of legal advice to The Company and the training of personnel of the Company
(b)  The purchase of standardised services including market information services and the provision of price feeds
