We have some exciting news we’d like to share with you about our Interactive Brokers offering.

  1. We’ve added EUR and GBP to the available account currencies eliminating the restriction to deposit to your Interactive Brokers account in USD only.
  2. We’ve enabled two new account types: Classic and Darwin.

Classic accounts currently offer all USD-denominated US Stocks. More assets (ETFs, Futures) are coming soon.

Darwin accounts offer a restricted subset of assets available for trading + the soon-to-be-available ability to list your strategy on the DARWIN Exchange.

Listing your trading strategy on the Exchange will enable you to:

  1. Attract investor capital to back your strategy
  2. Legally charge 15% performance fees on investor profits on a High-Water Mark (HWM) basis.

Already open IBKR accounts are now considered Darwin accounts. Please contact us if you have such an account and would like to change it to a Classic account. Kindly note that it’s not possible to change the currency of the account.

We hope you’re just as excited as we are, and look forward to receiving your account application soon. Sign up here to receive information about how to apply and notifications about future releases.
