A reader has asked: I’m looking for a medium-sized prime broker?
Finding the right prime broker is hard these days. The Tier 1 primes, don’t like accounts that are too small and small prime brokers may not offer the full scope of services that you require.
You haven’t mentioned what sort of services you need, but if you can compare prime brokers that shows a selection of prime brokers in our prime broker section.
We also have a prime broker finder service where you can enter your details and the type of trading you do and we can connect you with some medium sized prime brokers that may be appropriate for your style of trading.
In reality, prime brokers are found through network, previous relationships, institutional conferences or dedicated websites like Liquidity Finder set up by Sam Low.
