Money Manager

I read an article in Forex Magnates today that NFA goes after PAMMs and money managers.

link : http://forexmagnates.com/nfa-now-goe...oney-managers/

Does any one know that is it illegal to be a money manager to trade for clients in Interactive Broker - Friend & Family program and oanda fxTrade Manager (less than 15 clients) without register with any regulated body ?

Is there any way to be a Money manager without register with regulated body ?

Re: Money Manager

As far as I know, signing the limited power of attorney is enough to make you a money manager

Hi Obsidian,
Thx for the input. I think POA is not enough because it just authorised us to trade for clients. Correct me if am wrong.

Re: Money Manager

If they needed any extra documents, wouldn't they let you know?

I remember that oanda has forex managed account available for u.s. division but it is only available to u.s. citizens.
