What is the difference between a partition and a linked account?

With Account Partitions, you allocate cash and/or positions from your current IB account into a newly created "partition" which is then managed by the professional Advisor or Broker of your choice.

While this partition is traded by a professional, as the primary account holder you can log into your TWS account at any time to keep track of the performance of the partition, see all of its positions, review account activity, and check margin and available balances - just as you currently do with your account. In addition, all activity in the partition is labeled and reflected in your monthly statements, and you retain the ability to trade the non-partitioned segment of your account.
