NFA assessment fee increase will become effective on January 1, 2018

Effective January 1, 2018, NFA's assessment fee will increase from $0.01 per side to $0.02 per side, for futures and options contracts. The decision to increase the assessment fee was made after a thorough review of all relevant issues by NFA's Board, Executive Committee and Finance Committee.

In October 2014, NFA reduced the assessment fee to $0.01 per side. When Members were notified of this fee reduction, NFA noted that it may be sustainable for a few years. NFA has been able to maintain the $0.01 per side fee for the past three years. However, in order for NFA to continue to fund its operations without compromising the quality of its regulatory programs, and maintain adequate reserves, an increase in the assessment fee is necessary.

For more information regarding the upcoming fee increase, please contact NFA's Information Center (312-781-1410 or 800-621-3570 or information@nfa.futures.org).
