Interactive Brokers has a Trader Referral Program where anyone* is able to refer customers to Interactive Brokers (affiliate link). In this article, I am going to show you how to apply for their Referral Program.

Firstly, there are two types of programs which you can sign up for – Commission Based account structure and Flat Fee based Referral Partners. The former consists of a master account linked to many client accounts. The referrer can send account invitations to potential clients who are keen to open an account with Interactive Brokers and is able to view the status of its client accounts. As for the latter, the referrer can refer potential clients to Interactive Brokers and earn a flat fee for each successful referral who maintains an active account for one year.

* This referral program is available for anyone who resides in any country except for Spain  – with or without account with Interactive Brokers.

Financial Advisors or Brokers using IBKR platform are not eligible.
