What should I expect in profit splits...

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by trade4today, Sep 8, 2005.

  1. I have always worked for a prop firm where I did not have to come with upfront capital.

    Recently I began discussing an opportunity with a firm that requires some upfront capital on my part, what I want to know is what type of split should I be looking for in comparison to my previous job with no capital upfront required.

    I only have my past experience to draw from and don't want to negotiate over something I know little about and come away feeling shorted.

    any insight would be appreciated.

    100%. If you are risking your own money, this is the standard.
  3. Thanks for the reply,

    Does it matter how much capital and leverage when it comes to that 100%?

    There is a commission rate that is very low, pass through of ecn fees and rebates, no monthly software charges, and they are wanting a split that is not 100% for me. Programmers are involved on their part and that is taken into consideration.

    Again I appreciate all the insight as I just want to know what the norm is in this type of situation.
