This clearing model allows a CM to permission a Non-Member Broker Intermediary to create and manage their customers in CME ClearPort.
Setting up a Non-Member Broker Intermediary account is the same process as creating a standard ClearPort account. Just check the box on the Account Setup page next to ‘NCM Account’ as highlighted below.
