How much excess capital should the applicant maintain?

NFA encourages independent IB applicants to have at least $5,000 over their minimum net capital requirement and FCMs/RFEDs to be above the applicable early warning requirement. This gives the firm a cushion against falling below its capital requirement if it incurs unexpected liabilities.

NFA is the premier independent provider of efficient and innovative regulatory programs that safeguard the integrity of the derivatives markets.
