Benefits of AvaTrade Pro

Opening an AvaTrade Pro account gives you access to a number of exclusive benefits, at no additional cost and different features such as higher leverage, which are not available to retail clients.
Higher leverage – Continue to access higher trading leverage and reduced margins on major indices, FX pairs and shares.

What should you be Aware of?

Retail clients are afforded additional investor protections compared with wholesale clients. If you are a wholesale client, we will continue to fully segregate your money and assets in the same way as retail clients. While a greater amount of leverage will be available to AvaTrade Pro account holders, there will also be a greater amount of risk. You will not have negative balance protection and the protections afforded under ASIC’s product intervention measures for CFDs, including leverage restrictions. We are not required to provide you with updates to our Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) or Financial Services Guide (FSG) or any other document AvaTrade is ordinarily required to provide a retail client. Our external dispute resolution scheme, the Australian Financial Complaints Authority, has discretion to exclude complaints from wholesale clients. Please also review our Wholesale (Professional) Client Information Statement.

Eligibility criteria

To enjoy all the benefits of Professional status, you will need to meet one of the eligibility criteria below. Even if you meet these requirements, in some circumstances, we may still choose to not grant your request to be treated as a Professional. If you answer yes to both requirements under Criteria 1 OR yes to either requirement under Criteria 2 below, you could be eligible for an AvaTrade Pro account. For more information on how to become a professional client, please do not hesitate to contact your account manager and/or our Customer Services team.
