PRIME BROKERAGE - AN INTRODUCTION
Prime brokerage grew from a need to process and control more efficiently the trades of institutions such as hedge funds, money managers, and investment advisers. These institutions are advised on different strategies and, to pay for this advice, they place trades through prime brokerage facilities. The commission charged for the trade pays for the research and other services provided.
This course explains prime brokerage and the benefits it provides to different institutions. The course also discusses the prime brokerage trade process, the participants in the process, and the roles of these participants.

As explained in the course ‘Prime Brokerage – An Introduction’, there are several reasons why a bank or broker/dealer might want to become a ‘prime broker’. Among the reasons given were revenue enhancement and inventory supplementation. This course explores the prime broker as it functions in a wider arena, and looks at the ancillary benefits derived from a prime brokerage operation.
