Prime Account

With a Prime Account, you can purchase stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETF’s, or any other marketable security with the professional guidance of a Financial Adviser*. Whether you’re getting married, having a baby, reaching retirement, or going through a major life event, we can help set you on the path towards your future goals. You also get online education courses and seminars, easy account management, and access to thousands of no-load mutual funds and ETFs.

How It Works

You select your own stocks, bonds, ETF’s, or mutual funds, and when you need a little extra help, you can get support from a financial adviser.* For a small fee, you can discuss your investment strategies with a Global Advisers consultant to get a second opinion. This way, you make all the decisions in the account, with the added bonus of professional insight.

Minimum to open: $5,000

What You Can Expect

Our Business Principles

We are guided by a set of values and principles that determine our course of action when dealing with clients and the public in general.

US citizens living anywhere in the world and US resident aliens may open cash or margin Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).

IRA margin accounts allow trading so the account can be fully invested as well as the ability to trade multiple currencies and multiple currency products, but are subject to the following limitations:

  • No cash borrowing (i.e. cannot have a debit balance or short stocks).
  • IRA accounts may be opened in any base currency, but when trading in a non-base currency product, a currency trade must be executed first as you cannot borrow currencies.
  • Withdrawals are permitted only in USD.*
  • No stock or option cross-margining.
  • No currency borrowing.
  • Futures trading in an IRA margin account is subject to substantially higher margin requirements than in a non-IRA margin account. Margin rates in an IRA margin account may meet or exceed three times the overnight futures margin requirement imposed in a non-IRA margin account.

Customers are advised to consult with their adviser and tax specialist for further details on IRA rules and regulations.
Residents of Canada may not open Individual Retirement Accounts.
