Does Markets Invest profit from client losses?

No. Unlike the majority of Forex and CFD providers, we do not profit from client trading losses, nor do we run a B-book. Markets Invest is an ‘A-book’ broker, which means we hedge all market risk and therefore don’t stand to gain from client losses.

We utilize the ‘A-book net’ dealing model for small Forex and Metals trades that are below our prime broker minimum in order to reduce minimum ticket fees. It is possible for Markets Invest to make a profit on these small forex and metals trades, when a client has made a loss, but only in specific scenarios. These scenarios are incidental and the exception rather than the aim of the A-book net model.

Examples of when this can occur are:

Spread earnings on CFDs

Index and Commodity CFD products are ‘synthetic index/market tracking derivatives’.

Frequently Asked Questions

Markets Invest makes money from commissions, spreads, swaps and interest. We do not profit from client losses.

Markets Invest’s LP’s consist of Tier-1 banks, non-bank market makers, ECNs and dark pools. Some of our LP’s include the following: Goldman Sachs, Saxo Bank, Deutsche Bank, BNP PARIBAS, UBS, LMAX, XTX, CREDIT SUISSE, HSBC, Natwest, STANDARD CHARTERED BANK, Vidarr Capital, Citadel Securities.

All FX/Metal trades > 50,000 are executed in the real market directly and will be filled by our LP’s.

FX Trades < 50,000 are executed in the real market once the net position of small trades exceeds the batch hedge size. This is due to the high cost to hedge individual small trades.

All CFD trades go to our non-bank market makers who specialise in indices and commodities trading to ensure the tightest prices and best execution.

B-book brokers take the opposite side of clients positions and assume the role of market maker. What this means is that clients trades are not hedged in the real market. This means the broker profits when the client loses, creating a clear conflict of interest between broker and client. B-book brokers have a vested interest in the client losing money as this becomes their profit.

An A-book broker is a broker that executes all clients trades in the real market. In this model, the broker has no interest in clients losing as client losses are not earned by the broker. There are fewer conflicts of interest between A-book brokers and their clients, and when the clients win, the broker is better off – as they are making the broker commissions.

Markets Invest does not run a B-book. This means that we do not profit from client losses or trade against our clients. We believe the role of a broker is merely to act as the intermediary between the banks.
