US FCMs wrap up 2023 with required customer funds toeing record high

Wells Fargo, BNP Paribas marked new peaks in December

A surge in required segregated customer funds at US futures commission merchants’ (FCMs) through December – almost half of which accrued to Wells Fargo alone – brought the total back close to the record levels from seven months earlier, data from the National Futures Association (NFA) shows.

Aggregate funds totalled $161.9 billion on the last trading day of 2023, up 2.8% in four weeks and 5.9% year on year, and just 1% short of May’s record high.
