Governing Law and Jurisdiction – This Agreement shall be governed by the law applicable in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
GLE Markets doesn’t condone money laundering and endorses the fight against money launderers. GLE Markets follows the guidelines set by MONEYVAL (Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures). MONEYVAL is a permanent monitoring mechanism of the Council of Europe, a pan-European organisation with 47 member states, reporting directly to its principal organ, the Committee of Ministers. MONEYVAL is entrusted with the task of assessing compliance with the principal international standards to counter money laundering and the financing of terrorism and the effectiveness of their implementation, as well as with the task of making recommendations to national authorities in respect of necessary improvements to their systems. MONEYVAL also conducts thematic typologies research of money laundering and terrorist financing methods, trends and techniques. MONEYVAL was originally an observer to the FATF and from June 2006 became an associate member.
GLE Markets now has policies in place to dissuade people from laundering money. These policies include:
- Guarantee clients have valid proof of identification.
- Maintain records of identification information.
- Determine that clients aren’t known or suspected terrorists by vetting their names against lists of known or suspected terrorists.
- Inform clients that the information they disclose may be used to verify their identity.
- Closely following clients’ money transactions.
- No cash is accepted, money orders, third-party transactions, exchange houses transfers or the Western Union transfers. Money laundering occurs when funds from an illegal/criminal activity are moved through the financial system in such a way as to make it appear that the funds have come from legitimate sources.
Money Laundering usually follows three stages:
A. Firstly, cash or cash equivalents are put into the financial system. Secondly, money is transferred or moved to other accounts (e.g. futures accounts) through a series of financial transactions made to obscure the source of the money (e.g. executing trades with little or no financial risk or transferring account balances to other accounts). And finally, the funds are re-introduced into the economy so that the funds appear to have come from legal sources (e.g. closing a futures account and transferring the funds to a bank account).
B. Trading accounts are one vehicle that can be used to launder illicit funds or to hide the true owner of the funds. In particular, a trading account can be used to execute financial transactions that help complicate tracing the sources of the funds. GLE Markets directs fund withdrawals back to the original source of remittance, as a preventative measure. International Anti-Money Laundering demands financial services institutions to be aware of potential money laundering abuses that could happen in a customer account and implement a compliance program to dissuade, detect and report potentially suspicious activity. These guidelines have been enacted to protect GLE Markets and its clients.

GLE Markets Premium Trading Accounts Fees and Charges
- Management Fee: To ensure we keep providing the highest quality of services to our traders, we charge an annual fee. This fee is there to fully cover the functional and operating costs of your account. The fee is typically 2% of your fund’s net asset value (NAV) over a 12-month period.
- Performance Fee: This fee is considered as the incentive fee, which is regarded as a reward for the positive returns. As a performance fee, we usually charge 20% of your fund’s profits. Setting this fee is realised when your fund ranges above a level of profit that’s previously specified.
For further clarification about our fees, feel free to contact our customer care team.
How our Performance Fee is calculated:
In this example, let’s say an investor has invested $100 in a hedge fund in which they’ve allocated this capital to a hedge fund manager.
Automatically, the hedge fund manager collects a 2% fee, leaving $98 dollars to be invested in any asset class, such as stocks, bonds, and/ or commodities. In this example specifically, the investment was profitable and it brought in a return of $110 dollars. A 20% fee is taken out of the hedge fund as an incentive fee, which comes out of any profits generated. Therefore, we have a total of $12, at $2.4. This leaves $107.6 dollars, rounded up to $108 in this example, and this is to be returned to the investor.
For a while now, the 2/20 structure has been considered to be the more traditional model used. Even so, hedge fund managers are facing high levels of pressure to reduce these fees. Back in 2019, Preqin observed marginal decreases in the industry’s fee structure, which reduced the average management fee to 1.50% and the performance fee to 19%. To ensure performance fees are not preemptively taken, which could trigger investors to exercise a claw-back provision, a hurdle rate and/or high-water mark can be set in place.
- Discounts for Capital Lockup
A lock-up period is the period of time where investors cannot make any selling decisions on a specific investment. These investors are expected not to redeem or sell shares of these particular investments. Lock-up periods are used for 2 main reasons;
- hedge funds
Why lock-up periods are important is because they give the fund managers time to exit investments that they don’t want to proceed in, whether it’s because of illiquidity or having an unbalanced portfolio of investments.
To ensure that a hedge fund lock-up gives the investor enough time to exit an investment without driving the prices against their overall portfolio, this kind of lock-up typically lasts 30-90 days and it varies according to the underlying investment of each fund.
Usually, for long/short funds that are invested in any liquid stock, the lock-up period is 1 month. On the other hand, hedge funds are more thinly traded securities, such as distressed loans or other forms of debt, and their lock-up period is longer. Some hedge funds may have no lockup period at all depending on the structure of the fund’s investments.
Investors have the freedom to redeem their shares after the lock-up period ends in accordance with the previously set schedule, which usually happens to be quarterly. As mentioned above, we may give a period between 30 to 90 days notice so that the fund manager has enough time to liquidate their underlying securities and allow the payment to go smoothly to the investors.
A hedge fund has the freedom to offer a substantial discount to investors who are willing to lock up their investments with the company for a specified time period, such as 6 months, or 1 year. To generate a significant ROI, hedge funds try to apply this method, to allow the investments that require a long period of time to get the time they need. In return for the client’s longer lock-up period, the hedge fund grants them a reduced fee structure. With GLE Markets, we give up to 5% as a fee.
- Additional Fees
There are several forms of fees, and depending on your trading activity on your GLE Markets account, one or more of the fees below could be applied to your account.
- Overnight Funding Fee
The Overnight Funding Fee is charged or added to your account if you’re holding a trading position open overnight (based on our trading platform time). Therefore, if you keep your trade open after a certain hour, we refer to this as the “Overnight Funding Time.”
- Currency Conversion Fee
Whenever you make a trade that is dominated with a currency that isn’t identical to the one you have specified for your GLE Markets trading account, we charge you a Currency Conversion Fee. Automatically, the Currency Conversion Fee will be reflected in real time into the unrealised profit and loss of your open position on your GLE Markets account.
- Guaranteed Stop Order
The Guaranteed Stop Order is a type of order used to help you manage risks by the Stop Loss level. Please take into account that activating this feature ensures your position closes at a specific requested rate, therefore it is subject to a wider spread.
- Inactivity Fee
The Inactivity Fee is only charged if you do not log into your account for a period that is longer than 3 months. If there are 3 months of inactivity, a fee of up to $10 per month will be levied from your GLE Markets trading account. If you don’t login into your GLE Markets trading account after that time, this fee will continue to be charged from your balance as long as no login is made.
- Deposits and Withdrawals Fees
Rarely do we add fees when you’re transferring money to and from your GLE Markets trading account. If any fees are charged, they normally stem from your payment issuer or bank, and not from GLE Markets.
On rare occasions, we may charge a fee for exceeding the maximum number of monthly withdrawals. For example, it may happen with international credit card transactions, incoming/outgoing bank transfers, and/ or transactions using a currency that is not supported (Forex conversion).
