Frequently Asked Questions about Trade Platforms

MBA offers introductory answers to frequently asked questions about trade platforms, trade programs and services of MBA.  Should you have any further questions, please email me at

1. What is the minimum level of participation in the trade platform?

Trade Platforms trades at institutional levels in increments of One Hundred Million, Two Hundred Fifty Million, and Five Hundred Million U.S. Dollars.  As principals, MBA can bring in qualified principals to participate in the Trade Platform at levels of no less than Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars.

2. What type of returns can be expected or anticipated for principals who are invited to participate in the trade platform?

MB Assets can document past performance after we’ve determined the client qualifies for participation. The various programs have documented double and triple-digit returns.

3. What does a trade platform trade?

Trade platforms trade in a broad spectrum of markets which include currencies, the energy complex, indices, notes, bonds, precious & industrial metals, and other various commodities.

4. I’ve been told by many other parties offering trade platforms that my money can be traded while remaining in my bank account while blocked, reserved, placed under an administrative hold, or in a non-depletion account; is this true?

No, this is not true.  99.9% of all claims which boast of risk-less Trade Platforms that can allegedly use blocked and reserved funds, administrative holds and non-depletion accounts are fraudulent scams that cannot support their claims with documentation.  Determine which regulatory authority governs their trading then call and ask the regulators if the firm making these representations or, if anyone at all, can trade based upon blocked funds, reserved funds, funds placed under an administrative hold or in a non-depletion account; you will quickly determine the reality of these claims.  Real Trade Platforms require investors to move their money to the Trade Platforms; MBA, the Trade Platform and all real trade platforms can document performance.

5.  I’ve been told by numerous other parties that they could not document performance because it’s proprietary, or that it’s a solicitation; is this correct?

Quite simply, If you cannot secure past performance data from a firm saying they trade, odds are that they do not trade and that they are not principals.  There are no rules or laws prohibiting parties with past performance from sharing the performance data containing adequate disclosures.

6. Are there any upfront fees?

No, MBA does not charge clients upfront fees; unless a client is trying to bring a non-cash asset in for private placement which will require monetization or margin facilities.

7. Can I use an instrument or other assets?

MBA is mainly interested in working with clients that have cash or cash equivalents.  If you have an asset which is able to be used as collateral for a line of credit, you may be able to qualify. 9 times out of 10 there are problems with qualification when clients have attempted to use standby letters of credit, certificates of deposit, bank guarantees and other non-cash assets that were leased or borrowed from a broker or third-party which were not able to be used as collateral.

Clients who have valid assets, which can be used as collateral for a line of credit should move the assets to a third party fiduciary like a major domestic or international bank, an escrow account with a reputable commercial escrow firm or a third-party law firm of their preference and provide MBA with a letter from the escrow firm as well as the escrow agreement for verification.

8. Can investors meet with MBA and or the Platform?

Certainly, MBA and the platform are glad to meet with principals who have passed the qualification process.

Remember that clients use these programs for:

* Investment Only: Qualified and Non-Qualified Funds

* Project, Business Funding as a Self-Funding Tool

* Service, Retire Debt

Trade Platform Escrow Requirements

Once a client has applied and has received a commitment letter from MBA, as part of the qualification process clients are required to move money to a firm of their preference of either a major domestic or international bank, an escrow account with a reputable commercial escrow firm or a third-party law firm.

MBA does not obligate clients to use any specific banks, escrow firms or law firms.  Clients may use a firm of their preference.
