Prime Brokerage Comparison FAQ

The purpose of a prime broker is to act as the consolidated portfolio, risk and services account for a hedge fund. Their primary purpose is to allow hedge funds or large investment clients the ability to borrow securities or cash to trade and invest in order to achieve absolute returns. Often hedge funds trade with many different brokers throughout the day who will then "give up" trades to the price broker where the bulk of a funds assets are held. Whilst the prime broker may handle the majority of a hedge funds execution it is normal for funds to spread business across multiple brokerage accounts to ensure that trades are executed with discretion and finesse. Prime brokers also offer access to their client pool for capital introduction to increase the net asset value of hedge funds. This is also common with competing brokers who will want to add value to win execution business to generate commission.
Prime brokers facilitate investment activity on behalf of a hedge fund very often with capital borrowed against the hedge fund itself. As hedge funds can be active with numerous brokers, a prime broker enables greater visibility on performance as all trades are settled through the prime broker. Their responsibilities can vary depending upon what is right for you and your hedge fund.

Examples of the responsibilities of a prime broker can include;

  • Online and voice trade execution
  • Clearing and give up services
  • Securities lending
  • Client services
  • Risk management and financing
  • Reporting and portfolio technology
  • Capital introduction
  • Hedge fund consulting services
  • Bank credit lines
  • Research and market timing advice
