Our objective is to grow slowly and deliberately, taking on additional tutors while expanding our high-quality client base.
What we don’t do!
The financial markets are awash with small groups and individuals seeking to gain commissions from brokers for introducing new (and often inexperienced) clients to their trading platforms. They often entice new entrants to the market with fabricated notions of profitability and success and extract introducing commissions with little future thought for the welfare of the client. TTC DOES NOT have, and has never had, any relationship with a spreadbetter, broker or trading company that provides kick-back commissions to its client’ suppliers. We deplore the practice of ‘churning clients for commissions’ and will not enter into any such arrangement with any organisation now or in the future.
