I exchanged emails and talked on phone with Assent representatives. Everything sounds nice but there are couple of things that looked shady to me. One is that on their website it states that there is a one year hold on your capital deposit of $10k, to encourage trading or something like this. But when I spoke to them on the phone they told me there is a law that requires them to hold deposits for one year. I searched for that law and could not find it. Another thing is that according to contract it seems that $10k does not go to my account but it goes toward company assets. So if they go bankrupt or etc, I will not be able to get my money back. Is it the same in all prop firms, I will appreciate any responses.
