We have done everything possible to give maximum freedom to managers and maximum protection and functionality to investors.
The manager trades on a separate account. The manager's trading activity does not differ from his activity on his personal trading account – deposit/withdrawal of investors' funds and auto-adjustment of trades do not affect the manager's work.
There is no auto-adjustment problem, where the manager needs to adjust the volume of new trades when investors' funds are changed manually or to disable auto-adjustment, agreeing with permanent distortion of results, or to limit the flow of new investments when there are open trades.
Due to the existence of a master account, the trade auto-adjustment system does not affect the manager's work as investors deposit or withdraw funds, and the manager does not need to disable the system or adjust the trades manually. Minimizes discrepancy between the performance indicators of the accounts of the manager and investors through automatic reduction of the size of trades based on investors' funds – regardless of whether the investor terminates his investment in the account or invests in it.

Protects against force majeure and frees the manager from psychological stress by ensuring he complies with the risk rules set by himself.
Provides a loss limit for the investor and ability to forecast risks.
Allows the manager to focus on various categories of investors, without burdening himself with the task of monitoring and managing several individual accounts.
In ICE Markets investment system, the equity of any managed account is updated in online mode (once every 5 minutes). This allows you to see all the trading details. In the vast majority of investment systems and third-party monitoring systems, equity is updated discretely – with a frequency of 30 minutes or more. So the equity value within this interval remains hidden. Thus, visible investment risks always reduce: drawdowns will always look smaller, and some high-risk capital management methods (martingale, averaging, overstaying in loss-making trades) can be hidden
Full openness of trading indicators is an advantage to managers who do not use toxic trading methods (martingale, averaging, etc.) and have no reason to hide any of their trade indicators from investors.
The manager cannot conceal a particular trading method (martingale, averaging, overstaying in loss-making trades) or falsify trading results post factum.
The investment result is the change in the account equity from the moment the investor invests in the account till the moment he/she terminates such investment.
Withdrawal/deposit of funds by investors from/to an account when there are open trades does not distort results for both the manager and other investors.
The trades of all investment accounts and master accounts of the manager are aggregated before execution at an external counterparty. This eliminates differences in execution prices caused by a difference in the volume of executed trades or by a delay in copying by various components of the MA system.
