Maximum Number of Sub-Accounts for Personal Trading

As a broker, we are often asked by clients about the maximum number of sub-accounts they can create to trade with their own money, similar to the structure used by prop firms. This is a common question we receive from traders who are looking to set up multiple accounts for their personal trading activities.

Here are the factors we take into account:

When clients ask about the maximum number of sub-accounts they can create for personal trading, similar to prop firm structures, we consider several key factors in our response:

  1. Trading Method Consistency: We assess whether all the sub-accounts will be trading using the same method and execution approach. If all the accounts follow the same strategy, it may be easier to manage and monitor them effectively.

  2. Deposited Funds per Account: The amount of money deposited in each sub-account is another important consideration. We evaluate the total funds across all sub-accounts to ensure that the client has sufficient capital to support their trading activities.

  3. Divergent Trading Methods: If the client intends to use different trading methods or strategies across the sub-accounts, we take this into account. Having accounts with varying approaches may require additional oversight and risk management measures.

Ultimately, we expect clients to maintain a reasonable number of sub-accounts based on the total amount of funds they have deposited. We assess each client’s situation individually, taking into account the aforementioned factors and any other relevant considerations.

Our goal is to strike a balance between accommodating our clients’ needs for multiple sub-accounts and ensuring that their trading activities remain manageable, compliant, and in line with our brokerage’s policies and risk management practices.
