Risk Warning: Financial trading in a leveraged product may result in losses that exceed your initial deposit. Leveraged trading is not suitable for everyone, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved prior to trading.
Opening an account with Berkeley is a simple process. We require paperwork to be completed and the provision of personal identification. Berkeley accept both Professional and Retail* accounts for corporates, hedge funds, trusts, Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs), individuals, and provide facilities for Introducing Agents (IAs). Accounts can be opened within a few hours, after which the trader can have instant access to futures, options, Contracts for Difference (CFDs), forex, and shares.
To open an account please contact us. Alternatively, please feel free to come to our offices to open an account face-to-face with one of our Account Executives.
We may require additional documentation for certain clients.
*Please note that access to some markets may be restricted to certain clients.
For LME/CME Copper arbitrage we offer margin financing from just 13% of the total initial margin. Berkeley also understands the need for speed of execution across multiple exchanges as well as the ability to immediately hedge any currency risk requirements. This is essential for successful arbitrage trading. For more information Contact us.
As a category 4 member, we can trade freely with any other member which provides clients with access to a deep liquidity pool. This liquidity is sourced across several market makers as opposed to trading solely with a single provider.
Berkeley offer very keen pricing on both buying or writing of options due to our ability to independently source pricing from multiple providers. In addition we can run standardized portfolio analysis of risk (SPAN) margin scenarios to optimize funding requirements. For more information Contact us.
Flexible clearing arrangements are offered across major exchanges whether give-in or give-up services are required
As a firm, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), we segregate all client money held for the purposes of trading LME products and other listed derivatives from company funds.
