National Futures Association
National Futures Association (NFA)
The NFA is the industrywide, self-regulatory organization for the U.S. futures industry. Its goal is to help protect investors and regulate its members. Disputes occur in any business, and the futures industry is no exception. In 1983, NFA began an arbitration program, providing a convenient, inexpensive and prompt method for investors to resolve futures-related disputes. Since that time, NFA arbitration has become the primary venue for dispute resolution in the futures industry. NFA also offers a mediation program to provide a faster and less expensive alternative to arbitration.
If you are a customer and you believe you've lost money because of unfair or improper treatment by an NFA Member, we can help represent you in your arbitration claim at the NFA. NFA's ability to hear your claim depends on certain factors, such as when you first knew the dispute existed and whether the dispute involves futures transactions
Typical NFA claims involve:
- Unsuitable recommendation of futures contracts
- Failure to execute trades timely
- Failure to fully disclose risk in investing in future
Most NFA clients are represented on a contingency basis.
