  • This is a legal contract between BuzzFx LTD, (hereinafter referred to as “BuzzFx” or “Company”) organized under the laws of the republic of Georgia, its successors and assigns, and the party (or parties) executing this document.
  • The PAMM account Terms, jointly with the Account Opening Agreement, Risk Disclaimer, and Terms of Business include all the provisions and conditions provided to the Client by the Company for the use of PAMM accounts. Reading and understanding all of the above documents is a mandatory requirement in order to access the PAMM service. By registering as a Manager or an Investor, the Client acknowledges and confirms that he has read and understood all documents in relation to the PAMM service.
  • All transactions performed by the Manager on the PAMM Accounts are subject to the Terms and Conditions of the aforementioned account opening agreement, Risk Disclosure and Terms of Business.
  • The BuzzFx PAMM Account service is not an asset management tool for Investors. This service provides the opportunity to follow the trading strategies of the Manager, who manages their own personal capital through a specific PAMM Account, with the Investor's own capital. The investor, voluntarily, at their own risk, selects the Manager pursuant to a Public Offer. All decisions of acceptance or rejection of the Offer are a personal matter of each potential investor and are received without any recommendation or solicitation by the Company.
  • The Company has no right to disclose any personal information about the Managers, as any registered Managed PAMM Account is a personal account of the Company's Client and therefore its owner's details are privileged information, which cannot be disclosed to third parties. Based on this, any claims and/or requests that may be brought against the Company on behalf of investors relating to the legal and professional competence level of Managers will be rejected outright.
  • An Investor accepting the Manager Offer confirms that he/she understands and accepts the nature of inherent risks to the transactions in the OTC foreign exchange market.
    The Company therefore states to the investor that it does not and will not guarantee the recurrence of rates of return that have been made by the Manager in the past.
  • All trading on the PAMM Accounts can only be performed by the Manager on the basis of such terms. The Company will reject all claims of the Investor(s) that the Manager failed to comply with their recommendations.
  • All transfers of funds between the Investor’s personal accounts and PAMM trading accounts are carried out only on the basis of requests from Investors or persons authorized to do so by the Investor and acting under the power of attorney. The Manager cannot influence the decision making for the inflow or outflow of Investor funds or prevent them from being executed by the Investor.
  • The Investor has no right to bring a claim against the Company's trading operations conducted in the PAMM Account. Only the Manager, according to procedures set by the Company, may submit a claim for consideration of improper performance of the Company's Trading Terms.
  • The Company reserves the right to terminate the provision of the PAMM service to any manager at any time upon its sole discretion. The company may reject any request of Managers or Investors to provide the motives or reasons for such a decision. Such a decision, in relation to any Manager, cannot be used by Clients as a fact which can harm the Company, its employees or owners, in the media.
  • All records of trading transactions carried out in the Managed Accounts will be placed in the Client Portal area according to the corresponding PAMM Accounts at the time of the trade closing.
  • The transfer of the Client’s PAMM investment account from one referral group to another is not allowed. The Company allows the change of the existing group, on an exceptional basis, only in case there is no trading history in the account.

PAMM Accounts

PAMM accounts are designed to allow the application of strategies as set by the Manager, who manages his/her own capital in trading in the Forex and Financial markets, in relation to the Investor's capital (or part of the capital).

  • Perform non-trading transactions in the Client Portal area -> PAMM Accounts section, within the 'My PAMM Accounts’ section.

    Profit/Loss = the value of the Profit/Loss achieved with the PAMM account during the trading session preceding the current rollover.

    (Allocated Profits – Allocated Losses) * Success Fee %

    *Allocated Profits include profits from closed and open trades. Similarly, Allocated Losses include losses from closed and open trades.
    The formula is based on the investment duration and therefore covers the period starting from the last Success Fee pay-out to the current date.
    Indicative Success Fees to pay may change as the value of open positions rises or falls (High Watermark principle).
    Success Fees are processed during the first weekend of each month and/or at time of withdrawal. If, as a result of technical issues, a Success Fee pay-out does not occur, the pay-out will take place during the next suitable schedule.
