Interactive Brokers LLC is an electronic brokerage firm. The Company brokers stocks, options, futures, EFPs, futures options, forex, bonds, funds, and CFDs. Interactive Brokers also services commodity trading advisors. IB's activities are divided into two principal business segments: electronic brokerage and market making. As a direct market access broker, the Company serves the customers of both traditional brokers and prime brokers. The Company provides customers with an advanced order management, trade execution, and portfolio management platform. Its customers can simultaneously access many financial markets worldwide and trade across multiple asset classes (stocks, options, futures, foreign exchange ("forex"), bonds and mutual funds), on one screen, from a single account based in any major currency. As a market maker, Interactive Brokers provides continuous bid and offer quotations on over securities and futures products listed on electronic exchanges around the world. Its quotes are driven by proprietary mathematical models that assimilate market data and reevaluate its quotes many times per second. Unlike firms that trade over-the-counter derivative products, the Company's business creates liquidity and transparency on electronic exchanges.
