Other financial product providers and fees and commissions

Admiral may have arrangements with financial intermediaries whereby the intermediary introduces clients to Admiral. In those circumstances, a payment may be paid by Admiral or a related entity to the financial intermediary. This payment is usually based on spread and / or commission revenue that Admiral generates from financial product that has been provided to you. In addition to or instead of the above, Admiral may pay a fixed one-time (‘CPA’) fee to intermediary introducers and referrers for each real account customer they refer to Admiral. This fixed referral fee will typically be in the range 200-600 USD, whereas the revenue share remuneration typically remains within the range of 25-40% of revenue generated by Admiral. CPA is a one-off reward to the introducer or referrer paid per each qualifying referred client of Admiral, whereas revenue share assumes periodic payouts based on monthly revenue. Both CPA and revenue share rewards to introducers are paid on a monthly basis. Regardless of the type of Admiral's partnership with intermediary introducers, it has no material effect on the fees charged by Admiral for trading in its derivatives or equities products. Admiral applies the same product pricing and fees schedules to both introduced clients and direct clients.

The payment may be paid in the form of an upfront selling fee or periodic trail fees or both.


If you owe an amount to Admiral and you have not paid that amount, Admiral may charge interest on that outstanding amount at the rate set out or described in any agreements with you or, if not specified or described, at the rate equal to Admiral's prevailing debit interest rate determined by it from time to time.
