The Risks in Electronic Trading Platforms Agreements

What concessions can you expect from vendors

The electronic trading platforms you use for your fund are like the utilities for your home. Your house needs electricity to run your appliances, and your fund needs electronic trading platforms (ETPs) to execute and settle your trades.
