How To Fund Your Account

1.By Bank Wire

You can fund your account via wire transfer. Please make sure the name on the account sending the wire is the same as the name on your brokerage account that you are funding, as tastytrade does not accept third party wire transfers. Contact your bank or brokerage firm to initiate a wire with the following information:

All wire transfers must be made in U.S. Dollars (USD).

Bank Name & Address

BMO Harris Bank

111 West Monroe Street

Chicago, IL 60603



IMPORTANT: for Australian Bank Wires, our banks will require a SWIFT code instead of an ABA number. In the event the Bank Wire form you are using requests an ABA Routing Number, use 071000288

Recipient/Beneficiary Account Number


IMPORTANT: Do not enter your tastytrade account number as the receiving bank account number. Make sure you are wiring into this bank account number: 1619329

Recipient/Beneficiary Name

tastytrade via Apex Clearing

Recipient/Beneficiary Address

For Further Credit to / Memo / Message to Recipient / Description

Some wiring forms will have a dedicated section for the final recipient/beneficiary information (your tastytrade account name and your tastytrade account number), but some might not.

  • If the wiring form you are completing has a dedicated section for this information, this is where you should provide your name (as it appears on your tastytrade account), your tastytrade account number, & any other requested information.
  • If the wiring form you are completing does not have a dedicated section for this information, there should be a “Memo”, “Message to Recipient”, or some other section that allows you to provide additional information to the recipient of the wire. You should be able to successfully transmit your wire if you provide your tastytrade account number in this field.
