In order to transfer your account from another financial institution to OptionsHouse, you must complete an ACAT form and send it to OptionsHouse with a copy of your most recent statement. Account types must match in order to complete a transfer (i.e. Individual account to Individual account is an example of similar account types. An example of a change in account type is Joint Rights of Survivorship to Joint Tenants in Common). If your account types do not match, make sure to include a Change of Ownership form with your ACAT form and statement. Transfers normally take 5-10 business days to complete. You can download an ACAT form here and a Change of Ownership form here.
Note: International accounts are only eligible to fund via Electronic Funds Transfer (ACH) or incoming wire transfer. For more information, please visit our International Funding page.
