Introducing Brokers (IB) act as the middleperson between a broker and a client. The IB’s primary goal is getting new clients to sign up for the broker platform they are promoting. In return, they would be able to earn a commission based on the trades executed by the trader they referred to the broker. Different broker platforms will offer different types of commission payout rates and trading requirements. Prior to joining an IB program, it is important for you to find one that you are interested in and can work to your advantage.
Apart from just referring new traders to join the broker platform, IBs also support their clients (traders/referrals) by providing consultations and answers to their queries. In addition, they can provide trading education or marketing support to their clients, as having them continue to trade for the long-term will work in favour of the IBs.
