FA Forex Growth Program | Forex Investment Opportunity
The FA Forex Growth is a managed investment program that allows investors to link their Forex trading account directly to Forex Associates’ master account. As an NFA Commodity Trading Advisor (“CTA”) in good standing, Forex Associates trades the firm’s master account. Each trade and the results are proportionately mirrored in the investor’s account. If the master account makes a profit, so does the investor’s account. Likewise if the master account loses money, so does the investor’s account.
Forex Associates uses Gain Capital Group LLC (Gain Capital dba Forex.com) as the program’s designated Retail Foreign Exchange Dealer (“RFED”). Gain Capital’s parent company is Gain Capital Holdings, Inc (GCAP:NYSE). All trades in the FA Forex Growth program are executed through Gain Capital. Investors must have an account with Gain Capital to participate. Investor funds are placed directly with Gain Capital which provides investors complete control to suspend trading, close accounts or withdraw funds at any time. Forex Associates does not receive investor funds or have any access to investor’s funds. Open a Managed Account – Click Here.
Account and Fee Structure
- Minimum Investment: $25,000
- Performance Fee: 20% based on High Water Mark per month
- Management Fee: 2% per annum
High Water Mark ensures investors do not pay performance fees for bad performance
Gain Capital’s accounting team uses a high water mark methodology to calculate the program’s performance fees. Performance fees, if applicable, use high watermark to ensure that investors do not pay performance fees for bad or mediocre performance. A high water mark makes compulsory that if the net assets value of the account falls in the program’s investment period of one month, the performance fee can only be charged on any performance above the highest the account was reached in the previous investment period of one month. If the account falls 10% to, for example, $22,500 from a high of $25,000 in one month and rises to $25,000 in the next month, hence no performance fee is charged.
Gain Capital’s Money Allocation Manager Tool
Forex Associates uses GAIN Capital’s MAM or Multiple Allocation Manager tool to manage all investor accounts on behalf of the customers. The MAM tool allows the CTA to execute block orders with one click. This automatically allocates trades to each customer’s account in real-time.

Before deciding to participate in the forex market, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose. There is considerable exposure to risk in any off-exchange foreign exchange transaction, including, but not limited to, leverage, creditworthiness, limited regulatory protection and market volatility that may substantially affect the price, or liquidity of a currency or currency pair. Moreover, the leveraged nature of forex trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. The possibility exists that you could sustain a total loss of initial margin funds and be required to deposit additional funds to maintain your position. If you fail to meet any margin requirement, your position may be liquidated and you will be responsible for any resulting losses. There are risks associated with utilizing an Internet-based trading system including, but not limited to, the failure of hardware, software, and Internet connection. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some, all or more than your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose.
