A micro cap or small cap trade program is just a much bigger program e.g. $100M or $500M program, which has been opened up to new applications with a smaller minimum entry. The combined sum of the funds being traded will equal or surpass the larger trade programs minimum entry level but in the case of micro or small cap there may be a number of separate applications adding to the size of the amount being traded or simply topping up the total amount. It is for the trade platform in Switzerland to choose if they can be hassled with the stress of taking on numbers of unique principals to execute the same trades as they would with one or two clients. For this reason numerous trade platforms don’t offer micro or small cap programs, and if they do, they may not be available to new applications as frequently as the new applicants would like e.g. evergreen or all year round.
Small cap trade programs do not offer the returns the larger programs offer, in fact they can offer a tiny portion of the returns. The returns can range from 5% upwards but it is totally reliant on what the trade platform is presenting at any given time. The trade platform sees it as a take it or leave it approach, knowing that micro cap programs can be hard to enter and are not commonly accessible.
With lower starting point programs it is a case of knowing the right contacts and being ready to submit your application at a moments notice, because there’ll be a lot of other submissions being handled at the very same time.
