The Kansas City Board of Trade Clearing Corp. clears and guarantees all futures and options trades for the Kansas City Board of Trade (KCBOT).


History[edit]

The Kansas City Board of Trade Clearing Corp. was founded in 1913.

Products and Services[edit]

The Kansas City Board of Trade Clearing Corp. is the financial arm of the exchange and acts as a third party to all futures and options transactions - so there is a buyer to every seller and a seller to every buyer. In this way, buyers and sellers do not have financial obligations to each other but instead to the Clearing Corp.

The Clearing Corp. ensures market integrity and is responsible for managing the exchange's investments. These investments provide protection against the financial insolvency of a clearing member. Since the Clearing Corp. was established in 1913, no KCBT customer has suffered a financial loss because of a clearing-member default.[1]
