IB and Margin Requirements question

Retail Firms | Elite Trader -
Hi everyone,

I have a quick question in regards to IB - is there a possibility to negotiate a "custom" margin requirement for a specific asset (also, non-US customer)?

It currently has 20% requirement for an instrument that I am interested in. I was wondering, if they ever lower MR on a case by case basis...especially, given the fact that it's a 'fixed-income' with annualized vol sub-6%...

I also have offices of 'big-4' in my country, but I'm not sure if they would agree to deal with $1m portfolio...if anyone has any experience/knowledge with them - I would be happy to hear...
