Well done. You’ve made a wise choice in electing to follow Gold Star.

They don’t call it the land of the free and home of the brave for nothing, and by taking the step to invest your money with us you’re giving yourself and your family a chance at building sustainable wealth and changing your life for the better.

So what's a managed account?

By participating in the managed account you are effectively allocating capital to Gold Star to trade on your behalf. We then split the profits generated on a 30/70 basis (you keep 70%). There are no entry or exit fees and the funds remain in your name at our regulated executing brokers, FX Choice.

How much does it cost?

We only charge a 30% performance fee on a highwatermark basis. There is no management fee, broker markup, entry or exit fee. You are only charged a fee if you actually make money. The high watermark calculation creates a scenario where you are charged a performance fee once your balance has exceeded the previous highest point. For example:

Date1st of Jan1st of Feb1st of Mar1st of Apr
Net Asset Value (NAV)$100,000$110,000$105,000$117,000
Profit / Loss-$10,000-$2,000$12,000
Performance Fee-$3,000-$3,000
NAV After Performance Fee$100,000$107,000$105,000$114,000
High-water Mark$100,000$107,000$107,000$114,000

The above example uses the accounts equity amount, not the balance.

How does it work?

Once you've made the decision to invest in the managed account all you need to do is fill out the relevant application forms, sign a limited power of attorney (LPOA) allowing us to trade on your behalf and fund your account. You will then receive a daily statement via email with details on your accounts trading activity.

Sound good?

Frequently asked questions from clients:

  • Can I change my risk settings?

    No. Trade sizes on your account are in proportion to the amount you have invested. If you would like to elevate your returns or reduce your exposure then the only way to make this adjustment is to process an account deposit/withdrawal.

  • How can I track my investment?

    The broker will send you a daily email with detailed activity and the performance of your account, you are also given read only access to the trading account for up to 15mins at a time so you can monitor the positions in real time.

  • Are there any upfront fees?

    No, there are no entry or exit fees on our managed accounts.

  • Can I withdraw my funds at any time?

    Yes, you can withdrawal your funds at any time you need.

  • Do I have to install software or run a VPS?

    No, there is nothing to install or monitor. Once the account is opened the process of monitoring your investment is completely passive.

  • Can I trade the account myself as well?

    No, once you assign your sub account to the MAM you won't have access to trade the funds yourself. You would need to open a separate account not tied to the MAM if you wanted to trade manually.
