Absolutely. File|New Quicken File (may vary by Q edition). Then you get a new register file that you name uniquely.

I have my own account and each of my son's has their own account (all password protected). Each account has numerous brokerage accounts, credit card accounts, etc. Everything is kept separate, even the custom categories each person set up and the automatic entries each created. Quote downloads and downloaded transactions are kept separate as well.

As a treasurer of my Scout troop, I also run that through the same Quicken.

BACKUP regularly. Each account must be backed up separately (either from within each account or just use a small batch file to backup all at once).
