JFD Invest: mirror trading and portfolio management

JFD Bank

JFD Bank's mirror trading service enables investors to have exclusive access to a pre-selected, high-performing trading strategies whose track record has been verified by the company's portfolio management division.

The broker's clients have the ability to build portfolios of strategies that can be automatically executed through their mirror trading platform: JFD Invest.

JFD Invest currently offers 15 fully automated strategies via expert advisors. JFD Invest therefore opens the door to institutional quality asset management to more people (including less sophisticated traders), as it was previously reserved for a limited number of wealthy individuals.

JFD Invest users must create a special account connected to their JFD Bank trading account. Once they have done so, they can use the company's mirror trading platform to build their own portfolios of investment strategies across multiple asset classes (forex, indices, metals, etc.).

Fund allocation controls and risk management mechanisms are also in place. Orders are executed in bulk through a single hedge account to ensure that all investors following a particular strategy get the same performance and trading conditions. Users can also see the strategy's track record as well as pending orders.

JFD Bank only charges a 25% performance fee (high-water mark), there are no management or start-up fees. The high-water mark (HWM) represents the highest peak of equity at the end of an investment period (ex: one month), so investors don't pay any commissions for poor performance, only if they make money.
