Strength and security for online trading.

Financial Strength and Stability

Our strong capital position, conservative balance sheet and automated risk controls protect IB and our clients from large trading losses.

Interactive Brokers Group (IBG LLC) equity capital exceeds $5 billion1. 16.6% of IBG LLC is owned by the publicly traded company, Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. and the remaining 83.4% is owned by our employees and affiliates.

Unlike other firms, where management owns a small share, we participate substantially in the downside just as much as in the upside which makes us run our business conservatively. We hold no material positions in OTC securities or derivatives. We hold no CDOs, MBS or CDS. The gross amount of our portfolio of debt securities, with the exception of US governments debt securities, is less than 10% of our equity capital.
