Certain Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) programs are available to qualified eligible persons (including Non-United States persons) as defined by CFTC Regulation 4.7 (QEPs). By signing this certification, you certify that you are a Qualified Eligible Person.
A Qualified Eligible Person must meet the following two requirements:
First, the investor must be an accredited investor. The most common ways for this are to either have a net worth of $1,000,000 or more OR an annual income of $200,000 or more for the last two years OR, combined with a spouse, $300,000 per year for two years.
Second, the investor must meet an additional portfolio requirement, which is having $2,000,000 in securities holdings OR $200,000 in margin on deposit with a Futures Commission Merchant OR a combination of the two (for example, $1,000,000 in securities and $100,000 in margin).
