Alpari Launches Collateral Accounts

Alpari Limited, the Russian business of the international group of Forex brokers Alpari, has shown an innovative approach to boosting one's trading powers by launching Collateral Accounts. As the name suggests, this new type of accounts offers some extra financial power against a collateral – in the case of Alpari's offer, structured products are used as such a collateral.
 
As you perhaps know, structured products are an investment opportunity from the Forex broker: each such product allows you to invest a certain amount of money into a certain asset (currency pairs, precious metals, commodities) and take a chance on whether its price will go up or down. Each product has a maturity parameter, which is usually between 60 and 180 days – once the product expires, you may be right or wrong and hence – profit or lose invested money. 
 
Talking about the size of profits/losses, it's about time to mention the most important characteristic of the structured products, which also bears direct relation to the collateral accounts about which we are talking right now. Structured products offer capital protection of various rates – it's usually above 80%.
 
This means that once you buy a structured product, the broker protects at least 80% of your investments and you can lose only the remainder. By the way, you can even purchase a structured product with a capital protection of 100% - that's right – you don't lose but just profit. The catch is that products with such a high capital protection are more expensive and bring less return to investors.
 
So, imagine that you bought a structured product for USD 4,000 with a capital protection of 100% and you want some extra trading power. Alpari will offer you to open a collateral account with a balance of 80% of the protected capital of the structured product. This means that you get a collateral account with a $3,200 balance. You can use this money to fund your Forex accounts or investment accounts. However, once the structured product expires, the respective collateral account is closed. No, the money you've earned is not gone – it will be transferred to your trading account(s) with the broker.
 
As the whole procedure looks rather complicated, let's make a brief recap:
 
- You want to boost your trading power;
- you buy a structured product worth at least $3,000;
- you open a collateral account;
- you transfer the money to the accounts that need extra funding.
 
By the way, fellow traders, Alpari seems to have become an expert in offering ingenious solutions for its clients. Earlier this week it introduced a special promotion that allows traders in binary options to get the money for their loss-making trades back.
