Introducing Broker (IB) vs White Label




What is an IB?

An Introducing broker (IB) is a simplest form of partnership between an individual (or a business company) and a Primary broker. The role of the Introducing broker is to solicit clients for the Primary Broker. By doing so an IB earns commission.

- NFA Glossary:
"Introducing Broker (IB) A firm or individual that solicits and accepts futures orders from customers but does not accept money, securities or property from the customer. An IB must be registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and must carry all of its accounts through a futures commission merchant on a fully disclosed basis."

The process of referring clients to the Primary Broker can be done in a variety of ways, but the key component of a successful IB
business is to have the means, contacts and influence on the trading audience. Who can become a successful IB:

- investment companies, brokerage firms with a base of clients
- successful individual traders, money managers, investment advisers
- owners of financial websites, trading rooms, signal services, discussion boards, forums etc with good visitor traffic
- any other individuals or companies that want to start own Forex business and are willing to put in good work and efforts to achieve goals.

The process of applying for an IB is simple and requires filling out an IB application with the Primary broker and receiving a unique Introducing broker ID, reference links and promotional materials to start soliciting clients.




How an IB works?

When a client registers an account with the Primary Broker via a referral link which contains an ID of the Introducing Broker, or when the client purposefully mentions an IB name when opening an account, in both cases the IB receives a commission.
Two common types of commission structures include a choice of:
- a flat fee for every referred client. This fee is can vary from $50 to $400 at times.
- spread sharing, where an IB constantly earns a small portion of the spread as long as his referred client keeps trading with the Primary Broker.

What is a White Label?

A White Label is a step up comparing to the IB. A White Label program will suit qualified and experience individuals (or companies) who want to become Forex brokers and create own brands in the Forex industry.

- NFA Manual / Rules
"White labeling refers to the practice of leasing the right to place the lessee's name on and market another firm's trading platform as its own and then passing the trades through to the lessor. In the typical while labeling arrangement, the lessee's customers do not have a contractual relationship with, and in fact may be unaware of, the firm that owns and operates the platform. For regulatory purposes, the lessee is the counterparty to the customer's trades and the corresponding transactions with the lessor are separate transactions between the lessee and the lessor to hedge the lessee's customer obligations".

The benefits of White Label brokerage programs include:
- fast start of the online business with extensive continuous support from the Primary broker
- avoiding the costs of setting up and running a full dealing business model, which requires licensing
- getting first-hand experience in the business, preparing to run an own independent brokerage
- working with own clients, instead of referring them, and being able to control own business to a larger degree

How a White Label works?

Running a White Label brokerage is pretty much the same as running a regular brokerage business.
You’ll keep a website about your brokerage services, a fully functional trading platform, you set own dealing spreads/commission and work with your clients: open accounts, accept deposits/withdrawals, monitor reports etc (Full White Label), or leave account management functions, including deposit/withdrawals to the Prime Broker (Limited White Label).

The Primary broker is always ready to supply a White Label with everything needed for starting the business, even make a new website if needed.
In addition, the trading platform will be branded with your company name and logo, protecting your privacy with the Primary broker, so that traders may actually never know who is the real owner of the platform.
What a White Label cannot control is:
- currency symbols available for trading
- the opening and closing of the market trading hours
- everything regarding the security of the system, which is controlled by the Primary broker.
The Primary broker will run an extensive back-office support, will handle all end-of-day reports and other trading related and administrative activities.
A White Label earns income from each client’s trade. The higher the trading volume of White Label clients, the higher the income revenues. The revenue & compensation models for the White Labels are more flexible and have a variety of options to choose from, which will be specified in the White Label partnership contract.

I don't disagree with your comments. However, wouldn't it be possible for a white
label broker to offer to its clients the same prices given to him by the primary broker
(no mark-up) and earn revenue only from the primary broker through some form of revenue
sharing arrangement? If that is possible, wouldn't that mean that the WL broker's revenue
is actually sourced from the primary broker and not from the clients?


BrokerGuru

Its clients. A Prime broker provides the technical side of the deal - everything needed to offer trading services (e.g. trading platform, websites etc.) - while without clients a White Label cannot earn anything.

Where does a WL gets its revenues from? The primary broker or its clients?

White Label is expected to be more profitable, since there is usually more business commitment involved, which results in higher number of clients. Also, the % of profit sharing/commission is expected to be higher with WL vs IB.

1. If you want to only run a website as a IB and refer
all clients to the Prime broker, then you don't need any license.
If you want to register a company that's going to be involved in
handling clients' money, then it's advised that you get a license.
(I'm not aware of Malaysian laws and requirements for investment companies, but
in general the practice is that you just need a company registration, while further licensing is
not mandatory).

2. "Investing and finance" would be the industry field for this
business.

3. Correct, as long as you're not handling clients' funds, you don't
need a license. It's a general rule, as I said, and I believe it applies to
Malaysian businesses as well. You can double confirm it with http://www.sc.com.my/

Hope this helps!

Hello Guru,

First of all, thanks for bringing these useful information to public. Really appreciate.

I am from Malaysia, I am planning to become either an IB or WL of one Prime Broker (I already knew which prime broker to deal with), however i still have some doubts/questions and hope you can provide me feedback and answers.

(1) to become an IB, do I need any professional license in Malaysia?
(2) If I just want to become an IB and run a company for my IB business, do you know which field do i need to register to run the company?
(3) I read all the comments above and one of the comment from you was that if the WL do not involve in money depositing/withdrawal, then no local license required. The word "local license" means professional license right? Is it the same in Malaysia? If I become a WL of a prime broker and all the money depositing/withdrawal will be handled by the prime broker, then i do not need to get professional license to run my business, is it?

Hope to hear from you soon Guru, thanks for the information about this.

thanks and Regards

Hi all
I have read all the comments - but did not understand the subject well
We want to open a brokerage firm in the state of Lebanon :
Who can give us license to open our brokerage firm in Lebanon ?
Is the Lebanese government??

Is there a company or organization is doing all the procedures?
Is there a company or institution that these services on our behalf?

Please reply
Thanks


BrokerGuru

Thank you!

1. There is no such list of prime brokerage firms, but there is a good way to find them by checking the "years in business" factor.
Those brokers that have been in business for 7-10 years are the highest potential candidates.

2. As a White Label you would usually want to handle deposit/withdrawals for your clients. But, if you don't want to, your prime broker will gladly take care of it, though in this case it might be more difficult to protect/cover your affiliate/WL relationships with the broker? and your clients might just as well consider dealing with the prime broker directly.

3. They are the same with any type of broker, be it ECN or a market maker.

Hi BrokerGuru,

In advance i want to thank for your help. As an experienced fx trader, I would like to set up a white label business to be able to offer an online financial trading platform to the clients. For this purpose, I am looking for the right primary brokerage firm. I have 3 questions as a start:

1- Is there any list of prime brokerage firms which make partnerships with experienced professionals who hasnt set up a company yet.( Most of the prime brokerage firms looking for "financial institutions" for their white label products)

2- As a white label company, I dont want to handle any client deposit/withdrawals and leave this responsibility to the prime broker. Do I still need to get a licence in UK?

3- What are the main advantages and disadvantages of ECN white labels?

Kind regards

Hi Gogy,

I heard the name TeleTrade quite a few times, but surprisingly each time I wasn't able to find their website, until today (TeleTrade-dj.com)
Needless to say that there is very little known about this broker, even though they operate since 1994 (according to the company website).
The broker is not regulated, and there is very little to no regulation present in Russia, where the company was found.

I haven't heard anything bad or good about them, but hope to hear some reviews as soon as we create a Review page for them here.
Sorry for not being able to help much with this question.


Gogy

August 28, 2012

Hi BrokerGuru,

I plan becoming an IB for TeleTrade - have you heard anything about them? are they serious? I can't find them listed on your website...

Thank you very much!

Thank you Rick,

I'm not familiar with Norway registration requirements though.
At first, please check the regulatory body in Norway:
The Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway - www.finanstilsynet.no
The have their own registry which you might want to start with. I'm sure they'll also provide all necessary guides and references to run a Forex business in Norway.
All the best!

BrokerGuru

June 6, 2012

Yes, it's totally fine. I wouldn't worry about this even for a short moment. In fact, majority of brokers we know today are white labels of some of the largest brokers (e.g. Forex industry leaders).
Since a While label is a fully established separate entity with all the rights and responsibilities, you're equally fine trading with it as with any broker.


trader

hi guru..is that ok trading with a white label company?is that our money guaranteed?

There are risks in any business. From my experience I can say that you sign a contract with a company to become a White Label, and from that moment you're running a full business with all duties and responsibilities.

The cost question is unique for each country and each situation. I don't know if anyone will be able to answer you about the costs besides the company you select to do business with.

hi BrokerGuru,

Do you know about GVF(Global Venture Financing) broker ?
Can i have more information regarding this broker?

Thanks


BrokerGuru

March 2, 2012

Yes, IB brokers can be found in the search:
http://www.100forexbrokers.com/fx/broker_search.php

Search criteria as follows:
Additional information:" Introducing broker"

While the information about While label brokers isn't easy to obtain. Since a White Label dealing belongs to a higher level of partnership between a prime broker and its representatives, the new brand that they create together - a white label - will be looking to develop as a unique entity, and thus its information about the White label ties will be always protected by both parties.


trader
