Borrow, Earn, Spend and Invest Worldwide from a Single Account with
Lower Costs and Higher Revenues

Brokers Group
, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: IBKR), a global electronic brokerage
firm, today unveiled a powerful new integrated financial management
account that lets clients borrow, spend, earn and invest all from a
single account at highly competitive rates. As part of this launch, the
company also rolled out a new Interactive Brokers Debit Mastercard®.

Major benefits of the integrated financial management account include
ability to:

  • Borrow against your brokerage account at ultra-low rates – currently
    1.41% APR to 2.66% APR
  • Earn market rate interest on idle account balances* and
    make extra income by lending fully paid shares
  • Spend and borrow directly against your brokerage account anywhere
    Debit Mastercard® is accepted worldwide with no late fees
    or foreign transaction charges
  • Invest in stocks, bonds, options, futures, and forex on over 120
    markets at low costs
  • Take advantages of any of these benefits from one account, eliminating
    the inconvenience of transferring funds between accounts and avoiding
    late fees

* Interest is paid on balances exceeding USD 10,000.

"Interactive Brokers is lowering the cost of investing for consumers,"
said Thomas Peterffy, chairman, founder and CEO Chief Executive Officer
of Interactive Brokers Group. "If you want to borrow money against the
securities in your account you can withdraw funds or just use your
Interactive Brokers Debit Mastercard® for any expense – from
a cup of coffee to a car."

Mr. Peterffy explains why people should manage their finances on the
Interactive Brokers platform. Major benefits include highly competitive
rates, product breadth, advanced technology and global market access.

Steven Sanders, executive vice president of marketing and product
development at Interactive Brokers, said, "Our integrated financial
account concept provides a level of financial management that's long
been lacking. For years, companies tried to create financial
supermarkets, but failed because they didn't use best of breed products
and burdened customers with the inconvenience of transferring money back
and forth between accounts," he added. "Now everything from buying and
borrowing to earning interest and investing can be done from one account
at great rates."

The Interactive Brokers Debit Mastercard® is currently
available to United States residents and is subject to terms and
conditions and an application review. More information on rates, fees
