Kansas City Trading Group is an Independent Introducing Broker which began operations in August of 2010. Almost all personnel had come from the commodity interests business and had extensive experience in many facets of the industry. That being said, internal experience and knowledge has not been enough to keep up with the constant challenges our firm and others have faced in the past 10 years. Departures of FCM’s, consolidations of the customer base, increasing regulatory requirements, and not to mention a pandemic have increased the need for everyone to stay on top of changes and have resources that assist with that and advocate for us. We have been a member of NIBA since our very beginning days. We are thankful to have an organization that provides educational and networking opportunities for its members through monthly newsletters, special editions, and workshops. In addition, we have reached out to various NIBA contacts in order to be connected with experts and/or to learn more about the most current issues that are affecting all of us, especially with respect to regulatory compliance. The representation and advocacy the IB community receives from NIBA with respect to rules that affect our industry and how we conduct our business is invaluable.
