CTA Intelligence Service Awards

Chicago and Jersey City, NJ, March 12, 2014 - KCG Futures, the futures commission merchant division of KCG Americas LLC, was recently named "Best Boutique FCM" at the inaugural CTA Intelligence Service Awards[1] in New York.

The CTA Intelligence Services Awards recognize companies that have provided outstanding support and services to the North American managed futures industry over the past 12 months. The "Boutique FCM" category recognized the highest quality independent FCM.

"Commodity Trading Advisors are very important to us, we are honored to win this award and very proud of everyone at KCG who has worked hard to make us the best in a competitive field," said Carl Gilmore, Managing Director of KCG Futures. "It's gratifying to see that our model of customized service resonates with the professional futures trading industry."

KCG Futures maintains memberships at the major U.S. and international futures markets including many of those a part of CME Group and InterContinentalExchange Group, Inc. and also facilitates activity at many of the other major futures exchanges through external relationships.

CTA Intelligence is a subscription-only monthly publication focused on the key issues and commercial opportunities for professionals working in the commodity trading advisor (CTA) space. An independent judging panel, comprised of representatives from CTA Intelligence and leading industry experts, assessed the performance of the entrants in the areas of "financial performance and revenue growth," "new product development," "client feedback" and "continued innovation."
