Segregated Accounts

In ELX, Segregated Accounts are how we keep your funds safe, secure and accountable at all times.

What are Segregated Accounts?

A client segregated account is an account whose sole purpose is to hold client funds for transactional purposes. Client accounts cannot be accessed by third parties and are separate from the account belonging to the company to whom the funds are transferred.

 

Segregated accounts hold specific equity and fixed income securities for clients who may have particular investment needs that cannot be accommodated by our pooled funds. The advantage of segregated account management is that it can be tailored precisely to the client’s individual circumstance, goals and risk tolerances.

 

The objective of these accounts is to safeguard clients’ deposits in the event that the company incurs financial or liquidity problems, as they provide full assurance that the funds can never be misappropriated.

 

Each segregated portfolio has a primary and backup portfolio manager, who maintain a close working relationship with the client and participate in all face-to-face meetings. Clients receive regular reports from ELX and monthly reports from a third-party custodian. On a quarterly basis, ELX sends each client a report containing their portfolio valuation, a summary of investment and performance.

How ELX ensures they are designed for your funds' safety

Managed Accounts are set up on a PAMM platform. PAMM stands for Percentage Allocation Management Module. The Percent Allocation Management Module (PAMM) is a technical solution provided by brokers which allows clients to have their own secured accounts managed by a professional trader on the basis of a limited trading power of attorney. The PAMM solution allows the trader, through one trading platform, to manage an unlimited quantity of managed accounts. Because the accounts are all held with the same Broker, there is no latency with trade execution.

 

Depending on the size of deposit, each managed account has its own trade ratio within the PAMM. Trader’s activity results (trades, profit and loss) are allocated between managed accounts according to the ratio, without co-mingling of funds.

 

While clients authorize ELX to apply trades to their account on their behalf, ELX never has direct access to the client’s funds when residing within a managed account. Additionally, client funds are held in segregated accounts, and all deposits, transfers, and withdrawals are handled directly by our regulated prime brokerage firm.
