How long does it take to open my brokerage account with BBAE?

Most accounts with BBAE are opened within 1-2 business days. It may take 3 to 5 business days to open your account if we need to request any additional information from you. The exact time will depend on several factors:

  • Completeness of information provided - Submitting all required information in a timely manner will allow us to open your account promptly. Missing or inaccurate information can delay the account opening process.
  • Complexity of account registration - Accounts with joint owners, trustees, or complex business structures may require additional time to set up and approve. Our Compliance team needs to verify all account registrants and authorized individuals.

Once your account has been approved and opened, we will send you a welcome email with your account login details so you can fully access your brokerage account features and begin trading or funding your account right away. Please let us know if you have any questions about the status of your account application or if there are any issues we can help resolve to expedite the opening of your account. We are happy to assist you through each step of the account opening process.
