International Investments

Even if you reside outside the U.S., CGF' investment solutions are available to you. Here are two services we offer to you:

Cash Accounts

Your cash account is a central brokerage account in the United States. Its primary purpose is the purchase, sale, and custody of investment products. The principal operations that can be performed with a cash account are:

  • Deposit of funds through electronic transfer
  • Purchase / sale of securities
  • Custody of securities
  • Withdrawal of funds through a payment order
  • Deposits or transfers of securities

Account statements are issued monthly only when there has been account activity; otherwise, they are delivered quarterly with all account activities, operations details, securities positions, updated portfolio assessment, and available balances. The account statements are delivered by courier.

Margin Accounts

Once your cash account has been established, it can be converted into a margin account.2 

  • A margin account allows you to obtain a loan for a percentage of your portfolio value, depending on the type of asset. Your portfolio value will be held in guarantee of payment when the values that comprise it are eligible to do so.7
  • Margin accounts have certain risks that investors must be aware of in order to deal with the consequences in case of market fluctuations.8

Your loss can be greater than the value of your account. This is why the investor must be aware of the risks involved in this type of account.
