For qualified counterparties, Advanced Markets, in conjunction with Macquarie Bank, offers a secure client funds solution through a custody bank account.
In this structure, a new custody account is opened and maintained by the client. The account is operated under a tripartite agreement among the client, custody bank and Advanced Markets. Under the terms of the agreement, Advanced Markets is permitted to debit or credit the account for trading gains or losses. This is done within 24 hours of the close of the trading day.
All client equity is secure and fully segregated at all times and the client funds are not co-mingled with Advanced Markets’ funds or those of any other client.
Advanced Markets broad range of credit solutions is facilitated, in part, by the firm’s institutional investor base. Institutional owners include Macquarie Americas Corp Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Macquarie Bank, and GFI Group Inc.
