PFGBEST Discusses Global Services and Turnkey IB


PFGBEST is one of the largest non-clearing futures brokerage firms in the United States. The PFGBEST Global Services Division specializes in international clients, offering solutions from how to become a Turnkey IB to how an individual, corporation or institution can open an online account.

At the helm of the Global Services for PFGBEST is Scott Slutsky. Having circled the globe for 30 years, Slutsky is widely considered an expert in market education and helping people better understand how they can access today’s trading industry. Slutsky is the author of three books: Masters of the Futures, The Complete Guide to Electronic Futures Trading, and The Promises and Pitfalls of FX.

According to Slutsky, with PFGBEST Global Services, clients can harness the power of technology. The PFGBEST Turnkey IB product is an innovative and comprehensive program that utilizes the BESTDirect online trading solution to get started in trading, or to manage a single or multiple accounts.

Turnkey IB offers PFGBEST clients many features including fully-integrated online order entry, real-time risk management, premium benefits for customers, integrated market quotes, news and charts, contact and lead management, and online research. In this article, we will examine just a few of these features of the PFGBEST Turnkey IB program.

As head of Global Services, Slutsky says that risk management is a major objective: “Anything and everything management can do to detect and then defray immediate and potential risk is a benefit.” The PFGBEST Turnkey IB can track your own or clients’ positions at your IB on every tic. This tracking, along with the ability to access information in a flexible format to suit your business, is an extremely comprehensive and valuable risk management feature, Slutsky says.

In addition to risk management, the PFGBEST Turnkey IB can provide contact and lead management tools. “The single most important factor to the growth of an IB is to have an organized approach to sales and marketing,” Slutsky points out. PFGBEST, through Turnkey IB, offers an organized approach to information management with tracking and updating of an IB’s contact and message database.

By examining just two of its many features it becomes clear that Turnkey• IB, with the powerful backing of PFGBEST, and the BESTDirect trading system, can deliver the entire package. PFGBEST technicians will install online order entry and software. If computers are needed at the outset,” adds Slutsky, “we can even help the client buy or lease and install the needed hardware and software technology.”
