FAQs  >  Topic: Funding – Wire

How do I initiate a wire transfer to fund my account?


Incoming Wire Transfer

Use the information below to arrange an incoming wire transfer with your bank or other financial institution. OptionsHouse does not accept incoming third party wire transfer requests. A wire transfer request will be considered third party if the name on the sending account is not titled exactly as the OptionsHouse account. For example wire transfer requests from a trust or business account (with the exception of DBA accounts) to an individual or joint account are considered to be third party and will not be accepted.

Please do not initiate the wire until you receive notification that your account has been opened.

Incoming wire transfers will be credited to your account the next business day after being received.
