What is a prime broker?
A prime broker is a broad term applied to firms that provide a wide range of services to an asset manager. Prime broker service providers can either be independent or a part of a larger financial institution. They can be considered a manager of brokers, seeking to execute an asset manager’s trades as efficiently as possible.
They streamline reporting and operations by consolidating all your brokerage relationships into one.
Why use a prime broker?
If your strategy calls for global, multi-asset market access and maintaining relationships with individual executing brokers has become too burdensome, a prime broker’s services can help create more bandwidth for the asset manager by shouldering a lot of that relationship management. Using a primer broker consolidates margin financing and securities lending into one service provider.
