Externally Managed Accounts

Atom8 clients can appoint third-party traders to trade their account on their behalf directly on one of the Atom8 platforms.  Atom8 technology allows its clients to set a stop-loss to limit maximum risk or drawn-down level on the account.  Atom8 clients must exercise extreme caution in their selection of a third-party trader for their account and ensure they monitor the trading activity to check it is being undertaken as anticipated. 

Atom8’s unique Externally Managed Account (“EMA”) technology allows clients to set up their EMA with the following choices/ parameters:  

  • Choice of base currency of the deposit (EUR, USD, GBP & AUD)
  • Immediate Trading De-activation allows Atom8 clients to block trading on their managed accounts at any time, and with immediate effect
  • Equity protection: the Stop Loss Level functionality provides clients with control over their maximum loss. Atom8 clients can, for example, automatically block trader's activity beyond a certain drawdown level
  • Instant 24/7 reporting access to the account statements allows clients to monitor the trading activity on their managed account online
  • With the depositary institution’s consent, client can keep their deposit at their own bank and have it traded on the Atom8 EMA platform


In summary, Atom8 technology offers its clients a sophisticated, controlled and secure environment in which third-party managers may trade accounts of their behalf.
