ASIC OTC Derivative Transaction Rules (Reporting) (“DTR”) and LEI Information


ASIC Over the Counter (“OTC”) derivatives reporting regulations are designed to make the OTC derivatives markets more transparent by requiring counterparties to these transactions to report trades, positions, collateral and valuations to a derivative trade repository (trade repositories). All counterparties with reporting obligations under the DTRs must have a Legal Entity Identifier (“LEI”) in order to report. However, only IB Australia (“IBAU”) clients who have been permitted to trading in these OTC products and are operating as non-individual entities (e.g. corporations, corporate trusts, etc) are required to have an LEI.

An OTC derivative is a derivative that is not traded:

a) on a financial market that is:

subject to ASIC supervision under Pt 7.2A of the Corporations Act (such as ASX 24);

registered by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a ‘designated contract market' under s5h of the Commodity Exchange Act 1936 (US); or

a regulated market’ as defined in Article 4(1)(21) of the Markets in Financial Instrument Directive 2014/65/EU (MIFID 11); or

b) on certain regulated markets (referred to as ‘regulated foreign markets’) that ASIC has determined are subject to sufficiently equivalent requirements and supervision.

For more details please refer to:


An example of an OTC products for IBAU clients are the IBAU issued CFDs (Contracts for Difference).

All IBAU clients who are subject to the DTR regulations and who require an LEI will see the LEI Election form upon logging into Account Management. Note that you will only see the LEI Form once upon logging into Account Management; once you make your election, you will not see the form again upon subsequent Account Management logins.


Who is Subject to the DTR Regulation?

All IBAU clients operating as non-individual accounts (e.g. corporations, corporate trusts, etc.) are required to comply with DTR obligations. In this context, non-individual means any account which is owned by one or two individuals as stated in the account title. Individual accounts in the name of a single person are not subject to DTR and so will not have access to this page.

Original LEI Elections

If you are subject to the DTR regulations and are an entity or corporate client and have not already made your LEI election, when you log into Account Management, you will be prompted to do so.

If you have an IBAU account; you can elect to:

  • Instruct us to apply for LEI on your behalf. You will be prompted to fill out a simple form and sign an agreement. Obtaining an LEI can take up to three days.
  • Provide your LEI, which you have already obtained. You will be prompted to enter your LEI.
  • Do nothing (you do not have an LEI and you are not subject to the DTR regulation).


Que signifie le statut 'En attente du conseiller/gérant' à côté de ma demande de retrait?


Dans la section Historique de transaction de la Gestion de compte, les comptes clients qui sont connectés et ont fait une demande de retrait peuvent voir leur statut indiquer "En attente du conseiller/gérant".



Dans la structure des comptes de gérants, les clients peuvent faire une demande de retrait en se connectant à la Gestion de compte, tout comme n'importe quel compte individuel. Une fois la demande de retrait effectuée par un compte client, le gérant doit consentir à la demande. Si le gérant ne donne pas son accord, le retrait sera tout de même traité mais il faudra compter un délai de trois jours ouvrables.

Étapes de confirmation par le gérant

Une fois la demande de retrait soumise par un compte client, le gérant recevra une notification par e-mail indiquant qu'un client a demandé un retrait. Afin de donner son consentement, le gérant doit se connecter à la Gestion de compte et se rendre dans la section Gérer clients puis sur le Tableau de bord et l'onglet des Éléments en attente. Le gérant cliquera sur le bouton "Consentir" afin qu'il soit procédé au traitement de la demande de retrait en attente.

Remarque concernant les délais de détention

Afin de garantir un traitement aussi rapide que possible des demandes de retrait des clients, la période de détention lorsque le montant de la demande est supérieure à 80% du montant disponible pour un retrait sera celle consentie par le gérant ou une période de 3 jours calendaires, selon le délai le plus court. Pour les montants représentant moins de 80%, la période de détention sera celle consentie par le gérant ou le jour ouvrable suivant.

Ces délais permettent de veiller à ce que votre gérant soit informé de votre demande de retrait et qu'il dispose d'un délai pour mettre les fonds à disposition, le cas échéant.

Forex Execution Statistics


IB clients can now analyze the quality of their forex executions in comparison to forex trades by other IB customers through the FX Browser tool in Account Management. The tool provides transaction data for the 15 forex transactions that occur immediately before and after in the same currency pair of the client's transaction.


The number of transactions may be limited to fewer than the stated 15 as the NFA also has placed a 15 minute window on the query. Meaning, if within a 15 minute window before and after the customer's execution there are fewer than 15 executions the customer's query will return only those executions which occurred within the time window.

Accessing the FX Browser Tool
To Access the FX Browser tool, login to Account Management using the Login button on our website. Click the Support tab followed by Tools. Please note, at this time only data for the live account will be provided.

Active customers may wish to limit the results by further selecting the currency pair, side or time of the execution.

Once the desired query has been entered, click on the Submit button.

The next screen will display the list of executions for the given account on the specified day. From there, you may select the execution you wish to receive the execution statistics on.


Once the execution you wish to view has been selected, click the "Download NFA Report" button.


Reading the Report
The results will be returned in a new tab and will contain the 15 executions before and 15 executions after the trade you selected on the previous screen. Per the note above, if fewer than 15 executions occurred in the 15 minute time frame only those executions will be displayed.
