NEW YORK, March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INTL FCStone Inc. (NASDAQ: INTL) today announced that the FCM Division of its wholly owned subsidiary, INTL FCStone Financial Inc. ("the Company"), was named as the Best Independent FCM (futures commission merchant) at the 2018 CTA Intelligence U.S. Performance Awards.
INTL FCStone Financial provides full-service, 24-hour futures and options brokerage, advisory, clearing and execution services on all major commodity exchanges worldwide. The Company is one of the largest FCMs in the U.S. but is not affiliated with a major financial institution or commodity intermediary, end-user, or producer, enabling it to maintain flexibility and the ability to pivot to meet changing client demands.

By naming the Company as Best Independent FCM, CTA Intelligence recognizes INTL FCStone Financial's comprehensive and unique combination of execution, clearing, and advisory services.
