How AETOS works
A conflict of interests can arise between AETOS and you as a client.
https://www.aetoscg.com/pdf/customer_agreement_en.pdfYou deal with AETOS Capital Group Pty Ltd (“AETOS” “we” “us” “its”) as a counterparty to every transaction you enter into on our platform. You will have an exposure to us in relation to each transaction if we are not ready, willing or able to meet our obligations. For example, if AETOS were to become insolvent. You are reliant on AETOS’ ability to meet its counterparty obligations to you to settle the relevant contract. AETOS limits this exposure by hedging its exposure to its clients by entering into transactions as principal in the wholesale market in relation to its exposures with clients. AETOS is then exposed to counterparty risks with that hedging party. AETOS’ policy to manage its exposure to market risk from client positions is to offset (hedge) client trades with its parent company or other related entities on a back-to-back basis. Thus, there is limited risk to AETOS. In turn, AETOS’ parent company or related entity centrally manages the exposure it has to AETOS and other entities by aggregating its exposure and internally offsetting client trades with each other. Any net exposure of AETOS is then hedged by AETOS’ parent company or related entity with its liquidity provider. Providers are chosen based on their ability to provide liquidity in the underlying market as well as the strength of their balance sheet.
