Introducing Sub-Accounts for Institutions

In this example, there are two sub-accounts under the master account. User 1 has Auditor level access to the master account, which confers Auditor privileges on User 1 for all sub-accounts. User 2 only has Trading access to sub-account A, whereas User 3 has Trading access to both sub-accounts A and B. This means that User 2 may only place trades on behalf of sub-account A, whereas User 3 may place trades on behalf of either sub-account A or sub-account B.
In this example, Alice, Bob, and Eve are members of a single institution. Alice’s API key has Admin and Auditor permissions at the master account level, whereas Bob’s API key only has Trading access to the ‘Stat Arb’ sub-account and Eve’s API key only has Trading access to the ‘Alpha One Strat’ sub-account.
