ZERO Markets Pro Trader Account

Stay on top of your trading

Why a Pro Trader Account?

Get ready for the Australian Law Changes which come into effect from 29 March 2021 and become a ZERO Markets Pro Trader.

The changes only apply to ASIC-Regulated RETAIL clients and DO NOT apply to clients who are categorised as Wholesale Investors or Sophisticated Clients (see Eligibility Criteria section below).

If you fall into either of these categories, you can open an Pro Trader Account and leverage restrictions will not apply to you.

What should I be aware of?

As a ZERO Markets Pro Trader Account holder you will waive certain protections:

  • You will not be entitled to the protections afforded to retail clients under the Corporations Act 2001.
  • You will not have access to the protection measures outlined in ASIC's Product Intervention order due to take affect from 29 March 2021.
  • You may also be excluded from access to the external dispute resolution scheme maintained by the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
  • ZERO Markets is not required to provide you with a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) or Financial Services Guide (FSG).
  • If you qualify as a wholesale client because of the Wealth Test outlined above, then your money may be used for hedging or other purposes. Retail client money cannot be used for these purposes.

Alternative options

What if I do not qualify for a ZERO Markets Pro Trader Account?

You can continue to trade as a retail client and take advantage of our tight spreads, unparalleled execution and award-winning multi-lingual customer support.

One of the aims of the new ASIC intervention order is to follow similar measures that have already been introduced in major overseas markets such as the United Kingdom and European Union. As a retail client, you will get the full advantage of all of the new protections.

With a licenced presence in Europe and as part of a global group of companies, we are familiar with the proposed changes, and the operational processes necessary to facilitate the change.

Our dedicated customer support team and personal account managers will be on hand to assist ZERO Markets traders throughout the transitional period.
