This includes sharing our due diligence reports, personal experience with the CTAs, and statistical performance evaluations. aiSource currently works with investors of all sizes, ranging from individual investors to large institutions.

Commodity Trading Advisors

pie-sampleCTAs can thrive using our successful and proven marketing and execution team to turn a one person CTA into a business with incredible breadth and depth. Operating a CTA business is complex, and it is a  business that we 100% understand. While your goal as a CTA is to provide profits for both you and your customers, several components (in addition to successful trading) must work together. To succeed as a CTA, you need an experienced team behind you to provide these components:

  • Marketing
  • Allocation
  • Back office attention to detail
  • Clean and Correct Statement Generation
  • Low commission Rates
  • Breakdown Services including APS orders, partial allocations, Give Up and Give In Setups and Executions
  • A platform on which you can successfully trade
