Building on a firm foundation

PFGBEST is one of the largest and fastest-growing non-clearing FCMs in the U.S. today.  As such, it is our goal and our role as an industry leader to champion sustainable investing opportunities for clients, and to help create complete technology solutions for you.

Through sustainable investing products and programs, PFGBEST encourages customers and prospects to become increasingly educated and experienced participants in the products, strategies and asset classes they choose.

Some examples of sustainable investing practices:

  • Diversification in trading and investing into alternative asset classes like foreign exchange, managed futures, and options;
  • Adding managed futures to an existing 401-K portfolio;
  • Simulated trading on an electronic platform;
  • Creating longer term savings by systematically investing in precious metals;
  • Broker assisted trading in futures or forex in separate or combined accounts, or…
  • Self-directed, online trading in all exchange-listed products.

For institutional clients, PFGBEST has earned an industry-leading reputation for professional forex services, with experienced dealers staffing trading centers in Chicago and New York to execute foreign exchange transactions providing complete anonymity for clients.

PFGBEST achieves its foremost purpose of providing customers the best possible risk management products, technologies, and strategies by continuously capitalizing on the intelligence, experience and creativity of the people who comprise PFGBEST.  Combining in our opinion some of the BEST talent in the business, with resources in a global marketplace, and innovative partnerships, we have established a very firm foundation so that PFGBEST is a trader’s complete technology and risk management solution.
