It was time for our name to align with the true scale of our business.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 30, 2016
Veteran Chicago brokerage firm, Index Futures Group, has unveiled a new name, website and logo as part of a corporate rebranding initiative announced today. The new name, Icon Alternatives, better reflects what the company does and the value it provides to clients.
As commodity futures have become a respected asset class of their own, more and more investors are reserving a portion of their portfolio for futures exposure. Having increased from $45 billion under management in 2002 to $327 Billion in 2015, industry wide growth in managed futures has been substantial. And as smart investors continue to recognize the opportunity for true diversification, rapid growth is likely to continue.
“The new brand removes any perceived limitations as to what we can offer our clients. It was time for our name to align with the true scale of our business.” – CEO, Howard Marella
With expectations to expand upon its already impressive product and service line, Icon is well positioned to offer its global customer base an even more comprehensive catalogue of investment opportunities and ongoing education.
Complementing the successful Private Client division, customers now have access to a wide array of Automated Trading Systems, Managed Futures Products and Cutting Edge Trading Platforms.
Partnering with Econoday to expand its educational resources, Icon’s Simply Economics market report is an enjoyable discussion of current events and how they impact the financial markets.
