Why We Run Our Managed Account Business on Interactive Brokers


  • No platform fee for advisors.  We pass these savings onto you in the form of low fees.
  • IB has a robust advisor platform that allows us to log in and manage our clients’ accounts simultaneously.  We can execute ‘block trades’ and allocate down to our clients, lowering transaction costs for everyone.
  • Each client has his/her own client portal to log in at any time and check balances, get statements, and perform administrative functions on the account
  • One integrated trading platform for all securities (stocks, bonds, options, and international).  Fair, transparent, low commissions on trades.
  • Industry-low margin rates when our clients want to take margin loans against their securities.
  • IB pays its customers interest on uninvested cash idly sitting in an account.  Many brokers will simply pay zero or a microscopically low rate and pocket the interest for themselves.
  • IB offers Stock Yield Enhancement, a way for its customers to get paid extra interest on their stock positions when other IB customers to use those shares for short selling.  IB will split the stock loan fee with its customers 50-50, which very few other brokers offer.
