How does a PAMM account work


One opens a PAMM-account and invests in it a certain amount (manager’s capital), which they use in trading on a par with their investors. The manager creates an offer where they indicate the terms of cooperation, including the percentage of profit, which is their remuneration for managing accounts.


One studies the effectiveness of managers using an independent rating and invests funds in the selected PAMM account. If the trading result is positive, the investor makes a profit, part of which is paid the manager for successful work.

The manager’s funds 300 USD 60%
The investor's funds 200 USD 40%

Interested in trading foreign currency exchange markets but don't have the time or know-how to trade forex? Forex PAMM accounts may be a good choice for you.

What is a PAMM account?

Percentage allocation management module, also known as percentage allocation money management or PAMM, is a form of pooled money forex trading. An investor gets to allocate his or her money in desired proportion to the qualified trader(s)/money manager(s) of his or her choice. These traders/managers may manage multiple forex trading accounts using their own capital and such pooled moneys, with an aim to generate profits.

To demonstrate PAMM accounts further, let’s look at an example:

The participants in the PAMM Account setup:

  • • forex broker/ forex brokerage firm

  • • trader(s)/ money manager(s)

  • • investor(s)

The investors (say Peter, Paul, and Phil) are interested in reaping profits from forex trading, but they either don't have time to devote to trading activities or don’t have sufficient knowledge to trade forex. Enter the professional money managers (Marcus and Mathew), who have expertise in trading and managing other people’s money (like a mutual fund manager), along with their individual trading capital. The forex trading firm signs up Marcus and Mathew as money managers for managing other investors’ money. The investors (Peter, Paul and Phil) also signup with Limited Power of Attorney (LPOA). The crux of the signed agreement is that investors agree to take the risk for the forex trades, by giving their capital to their chosen money manager who will use the pooled money to trade forex per his trading style and strategy. It also states how much the money (or percentage) the manager will charge as his take for offering this service.

For simplicity of example, let’s assume that all three investors chose Marcus to manage their share of money for forex trading and Marcus charges 10% of the profit. Here is what the share from each investor and the manager's own trading capital in the total pool looks like:

In terms of percentage contribution to the total pooled PAMM fund of $ 15,000, each investor has the following share:

Paul = $4,000 / $15,000 = 26.67% and similarly,

Peter = 23.33%

Phil = 16.67%

Marcus = 33.33%

(The sum total of all shares in the pool always remains 1 or 100%.)

Suppose one trading term passes (e.g., a month) and Marcus manages to make a cool 30% profit on his pool, which now stands at $19,500 ($15,000 + 30% profit or $4,500).

He takes away his 10% charge on profit or $450. The remaining profit of $4,050 is distributed to all investors based on what percent they each have in the total pool:

Paul = $4,050 * 26.67% = $1,080

Peter =$4,050 * 23.33% = $945

Phil = $4,050 * 16.67% = $675

Marcus = $4,050 * 33.33% = $1,350

total = $19,050

Assume that because of the first term stellar performance of 30% returns, all three investors decide to continue with Marcus for another term. Paul and Peter stay invested with their (original + returns) amount, while Phil cashes out the profit, leaving only his original investment of $2,500. Peter also refers a friend, Pike, to join the pool, and Pike brings $2,625. Another new investor, Pam, signs up and selects Marcus to manage her $1,000. The total trading pool for Marcus is now = $22,000.

Percentage share for each investor:

Paul = $5,080/22,000 = 23.09%

Peter = 20.20%

Phil = 11.36%

Marcus = 28.86%

Pike = 11.93%

Pam = 4.55%

Marcus manages a 15% return during this term (15% * $22,000 = $3,300) and takes his 10% ($330). The remaining profit of $2,970 will be available to individual investors per their respective share:

Paul = 23.09% * $2,970 = $685.80

Peter = $600.08

Phil = $337.50

Marcus = $857.25

Pike = $354.38

Pam = $135.00

Total pooled money in the fund = $24,970.

Next, let's assume all the investors continue with the above investments for another month with Marcus, who unfortunately loses 20%. This means no 10% profit share for Marcus and each investor will see their share of the pooled investment drop by 20%, bringing the pooled money down $4994 to $19,976.

Paul = $5,765.8 - 20% = $4,612.64

Peter = $4,036.06

Phil = $2,270.00

Marcus = $5,765.80

Pike = $2,383.50

Pam = $908.00

Total pooled PAMM fund for Marcus = $19,976

At the end of each term, investor has the choice to continue with the money manager, switch to another money manager partially or fully, or cash out the capital.

  • • Provide a secure, reliable platform that allows money managers and investors to interact.

  • • Facilitate the trading activities of money managers within the realms of allowed regulations.

  • • Facilitate the account keeping, deposits, withdrawal, and related activities.

  • • Apart from a usual trading business platform, allow transparent review, feedback, rating, and related mechanisms for investors and money managers to select and interact with each other.

Here are a few things to bear in mind:


  • • Usually, the investors have no choice of forex trading assets, except for those offered by the money manager.

  • • They carry the risk of losing their capital due to trading activities of money managers, but also enjoy the potential of returns if the manager performs well.

Money Managers

  • • Have access to the money only in their pool. They cannot pull money from investor’s trading accounts. For example, Paul may have a total of $9,000 in his forex trading account, but since he has allocated only $4,000 to Marcus, Marcus cannot trade beyond that $4,000.

  • • Can set a minimum and a maximum amount criteria for investors.

  • • Can accept or deny new investors as they wish.

The Bottom Line

PAMM accounts are a simple hassle-free method for individuals to pick and choose their money managers for forex trading. With these accounts, investors benefit from profits with minimal involvement. However, PAMM accounts also carry the risks of capital loss, based on a money manager's performance. After understanding their desired profit potential and risk aversion, individuals should perform due diligence in selecting a PAMM account broker and money manager.

This information will be available for your investment contractors. When you accept an investment request, this information becomes visible for you and vice versa. It establishes the communication between the system users as the company is only a technical intermediary giving the guarantee of money refund and trader's share calculation without interference in other issues between a trader and investor.

VIPTRADE PAMM system does not guarantee that the managing trader will take profit. It is meant for ensuring the technical coordination between traders and investors, which includes monitoring of PAMM accounts, money acceptance and refund. Therefore, the system guarantees your funds protection, so they will not be withdrawn by the PAMM trader. Moreover, the system ensures that you can withdraw your investment from the PAMM trader's account at a short notice within 30-60 minutes after requesting (depending on the synchronization).

VIPTRADE PAMM system protects investors against the risk of funds withdrawal by a PAMM trader. A PAMM trader can withdraw only his share of PAMM account not involved in trading.

If the investors share in the account is over 90% and there are a few of them or only one investor, then it is possible. But the PAMM system allows accepting investments from hundreds of PAMM traders and keep funds from hundreds of investors on one trading account, so the possibility of simultaneous withdrawal is very low and inversely proportionate to the number of investors.

Before even getting started in the branded FX space, you need to make sure that your business name, logos, images, and any other visual representation of your brand instills a sense of trust and confidence in your clients.

Why risk a rejection due to a poor looking logo? It’s just not worth it.

Frequently asked questions
Why do I have to answer suitability questions to use Copy Trading?
The suitability test allows us to assess your risk acceptance level. This product may not be suitable for some customers who don`t tolerate trading risk. CFD trading is a high-risk product, even if you are subscribing to a top trader!
I have signed up and the investment period is for 30 days. Can I unsubscribe afterward?
Yes. The investment period is a recommended amount of time for a trader who understands their strategy and how much time it takes to achieve their desired results.
Can I subscribe to multiple strategies at the same time?
Yes, you can. And you can set the investment amount per strategy.
Which account are subscription fees collected from?
Fees will be taken from your trading account.
How can I see the trades a Signal Provider is sharing?
You will be able to see all of a Signal Provider’s trades when you subscribe to them.
What happens if a client subscribes to a Signal Provider for 100 USD per month and unsubscribes after two days?
Funds are withdrawn when the period ends, and are calculated from only those two days.
How does a Stop Loss (SL) work?
When a subscriber subscribes to a Signal Provider, they do not inherit the same Stop Loss. They need to set those limits themself. The limits are set on the full strategy. The subscriber can adjust their SL later as well. The subscriber can also decide what happens when the SL is reached: All positions are closed. The strategy is paused, but active in the portfolio. The user can remove the pause themself. All positions are closed. The strategy is unsubscribed.
How is a Stop Loss (SL) calculated?
A Stop Loss is calculated as a percentage of maximum profit. Example 1: A Subscriber has allocated 1000 eur to a strategy. A Stop Loss is set to 50%. When the strategy portfolio value reaches 500 eur, the SL will be triggered and the position will be closed. Example 2: A Subscriber has allocated 1000 eur to a strategy. The strategy was profitable and grew to 1600 eur. After that, the decline begins and when the strategy portfolio value reaches 800 eur, the SL will be triggered and the positions closed.
If a Signal Provider changes the subscription fee for their signal, will it change the cost only for those who become subscribers after the change, or even for those who were subscribed before?
The Subscription fee will apply to new subscribers. The previous one will still apply to previous subscribers on the same terms.
