The Forex broker Instaforex has a PAMM accounts service designed for investors interested in investing in the Forex market through experienced traders whose job is to manage the funds of these investors for a percentage of the profits obtained from their trades as a return for their services. All InstaForex customers can participate in this service, whether as funds manager of other clients who have an account with the broker or as investors interested in taking advantage of the experience of other traders who trade successfully in the market regularly.
Thus, the PAMM system of InstaForex includes two categories of customers:
- Customers enrolled in the PAMM system as investors.
- Customers enrolled in the PAMM system as traders or managers.
These PAMM accounts allow investors to use the system to invest their funds in the account manager (trader) of their choice in order to obtain a share of the profits from the trades carried out by the trader. The process of investment and transfer of funds is under the control of the company, and after this, the investor becomes a kind of co-owner on the manager´s account which allows the investor to share the profits obtained by this account in a proportion that is in accordance with the investment.
At this point it should be noted that the investors can withdraw their funds from the PAMM account whenever they want.
It is also important to note that the system can monitor the performance of all PAMM accounts and account managers so that the investor can select the accounts that in his opinion offer the best chance to earn income. In this case it is important to select the appropriate manager, because these accounts do not offer 100% guarantee of earnings (nothing in Forex trading can offers such thing). For each manager, the data available to the investor consultation are:
- Overall rating.
- Initial capital.
- Current Capital.
- Number of operations performed.
- Number of open positions.
- Percentage of profits.
- Percentage of profits charged by the manager.
The investor has the option of choosing among hundreds of account managers.

Example of a PAMM account with Instaforex
Let´s suppose that a trader opens a PAMM account with an initial capital of $10000. Then 3 clients of Instaforex invest in the account the following amounts:
- Investor A: $ 1000.
- Investor B: $ 2000.
- Investor C: $ 7000.
Thus, we have an account with a total capital of $20000. Therefore, each participant will receive the following percentage of profits:
- Manager: 100% x ($ 10000 / $ 20000) + thecommission for their services = 50% + commission for their services.
- Investor A: 100% x ($ 1000 / $ 20000) = 5%.
- Investor B: 100% x ($ 2000 / $ 20000) = 10%.
- Investor C: 100% x ($ 7000 / $ 20000) = 35%
