Advisor Account Structure

Advisor Account Structure

Account Information

  • Advisors who manage client accounts in excess of state registration minimums (generally 16 or more accounts and US $25 million in assets) must be registered under local regulatory law (e.g., Registered Investment Advisors (RIA) for US securities and Commodity Trading Advisors (CTA) for US commodities).
  • The account can be white branded with an advisor's corporate identity.
  • Advisor master account holders must be age 21 or older.
  • Professional Registered Investment Advisors can create multiple tier accounts by adding Advisor, Proprietary Trading Group Separate Trading Limit (“STL”) and Multiple Hedge Fund master accounts to their account structure. Each Advisor, Proprietary Trading Group STL and Multiple Hedge Fund master account on the second tier can add client/sub/hedge fund accounts as required. Individual and Joint account holders under an Advisor account structure can add authorized traders to become STL accounts.

Open a Registered Investment Advisor Account

Our Advisor accounts let Professional Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) and Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) execute and allocate trades among multiple clients from a single order management interface.
