Soft Dollar Commission Program


Interactive Brokers' Soft Dollar Commission Program gives hedge funds and Professional Advisors the flexibility to offset the costs of purchasing approved research products and services using soft dollars.

As defined under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 section 28(e), a portion of commission dollars can be set aside to pay research-related costs incurred by advisors and fund managers. Eligible IBKR Clients can specify amounts that can be added to IBKR commissions and set aside as a pool of available money (Soft Dollars), which can be used to pay for market data and research.

IBKR Clients can then pay allowed expenses for market data and research subscriptions to external vendors. Allowed categories of expenses include fundamental, technical and/or quantitative analysis; portfolio management, valuation and asset allocation services; and economic forecasting.

A Broker You Can Trust

When placing your money with a broker, you need to make sure your broker is secure and can endure through good and bad times. Our strong capital position, conservative balance sheet and automated risk controls are designed to protect IBKR and our clients from large trading losses.
