The difference between a Portfolio and an Entity

Each legal entity will need a separate onboarding application for Coinbase Prime. These legal entities are referred to as an "Investment Vehicle" in Coinbase Prime and will be tied together within an organization.

Once your Prime Investment Vehicle is set up, you will have a default Portfolio that will contain your trading and vault balances. If you have additional team members, you can set their roles within the portfolio as well. You will also have the opportunity to create additional portfolios after onboarding, each with their own balances and user roles, all under the same Investment Vehicle.
