Institutional Accounts for Fund Managers & Brokers

If you’re an institutional trader trading an established fund then your needs are specific and well understood by our Institutional Trading team. Alternatively if you’re a broker (or want to become one), then our institutional liquidity solutions can help you take your business to a whole new level.

Institutional Accounts Explained

If you’re a retail trader and have stumbled across this page and wondering what’s institutional trading all about then here’s a quick overview:

Institutional trading, in its most basic sense, differs from retail trading in the price, volumes and trading conditions that come with it. An institutional trader typically trades a fund (other people’s money) and takes a “performance” or “success” fee from the profits generated by the fund.

Depending on the strategies being traded by the institutional trader, the volumes expected are usually not less than 1,000 lots a month (100,000,000) for it to be financially viable for all parties concerned.

Institutional traders are typically required to make much higher deposits to secure the ultra low spreads and commissions charged in exchange of higher volume, thereby making the relationship financially equitable for all parties concerned.

Important things to note

Institutional accounts may not be suitable for everyone. Our institutional Forex trading accounts are designed for Forex fund managers, large scale institutional traders (such as pension funds, ETFs, mixed-instrument funds etc.) and startup brokers seeking to become our white-label/grey-label/private-label partners. Please note, that an appropriate license to operate as a fund manager or broker may be asked for if our compliance regulators require us to do so.

  • Minimum monthly fee of $2,700* applies
  • No Last Look on any trades
  • Co-location in NY4 or LD5 recommended for lowest latency
  • Trial account available for $500 trial deposit
  • Only USD as account base currency is available
  • Deposit/Withdrawal via bank wire transfer only

* The minimum monthly fee is not an extra commission but rather a minimum amount that we require institutional trading accounts to generate each month. If your monthly commissions are less than this minimum, then you are charged the difference.
