Prime Brokerage

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by Szeven, Oct 5, 2011.

  1. Can anyone share information about the specifics of getting a Prime Brokerage account to participate in CDS contracts that are OTC? What companies to contact? Their requirements?

  2. Just call a few of the big primebrokers. Goldman, JPM, MS, C. Most likely you will need to have a hedge fund set up with at least 10MM, just to get in the door.
  3. You got a few hundred grand to spend to work out the ISDA agreement? (just to be able to trade a a biteral cds contract)
