What Does an Exchange Accommodator Do?

At Equity Advantage, we are exchange accommodators and we’re paid a fee to take a part in a transaction and turn a sale and purchase into an exchange. We’re not an agent of our clients. We have a business purpose, and that is to structure the exchange. Our industry’s trade organization is the Federation of Exchange Accommodators; see for more information.
