No Proprietary Products

As an independent broker-dealer, we understand your desire for independence. That's why we don't require RIAs that work with us to allocate to proprietary products.

With MoneyBlock, you choose the products and services to provide and we'll provide tools and support to help you and your clients achieve your objectives.

Group and Complex Options Trading

MoneyBlock's platform includes Group Trading for executing simple or complex strategies across multiple client accounts.

We also support RIAs that use exchange-traded options to generate income or hedge risk on a single position or an entire portfolio.

For non-qualified accounts, we offer non-leveraged, limited margin for trading option spreads or cash-secured puts.

Independence FAQs

How can MoneyBlock benefit my business?

We've invested in our own proprietary platform to provide the necessary tools and flexibility that allows you to better manage the technology expense of running your business. Our goal is provide the features you need to provide value to your clients while also helping you run your business as efficiently as possible.

How can you make my transition painless?

No transition is pain-fee, but our relationship and back office staff has assisted hundreds of RIAs transition their business between broker-dealers. They understand the challenges and risks associated with the process, and work with you to understand your specific needs.

As a small asset manager, how can MoneyBlock help me?
