C2 Gateway or Direct

There are two ways to connect to Interactive Brokers via C2. Either Directly or through C2 Gateway
Are there any benefits to connecting to Interactive Brokers through the C2 Gateway?
Less Slippage? Faster Sync?

Any cons?

Thanks

They are both technologically the same. European people are requested to use “C2 Gateway” which is an EU-registered introducing broker for Interactive Brokers. Both use the same C2 connectivity to Interactive Brokers, and both use Interactive Brokers as the broker of record. In both cases, Interactive Brokers holds your funds and executes your trades.
