Divisions are a vital component of FIA, giving members the opportunity to discuss common issues, exchange ideas, give input to the FIA board, exchanges and other regulatory and self-regulatory bodies, and network with peers. Division initiatives bring industry professionals together to find solutions for common problems. Any employee of an FIA member firm, regardless of the firm's membership category, is eligible to join a division for a small annual membership fee.
FIA Market Technology Division studies how technological solutions can be used to enhance efficiency in member operations and provides a forum for discussion and knowledge-sharing.
FIA Operations Americas promotes industry cooperation and the exchange of ideas among FIA members throughout the Americas. Five active committees meet on on a regular basis: brokerage, clearing & trade management, deliveries, financial management and education & events.
The Law & Compliance Division monitors legal and regulatory developments affecting the futures and derivatives industry, assisting FIA in providing information to help relevant regulators and courts make decisions that affect the cleared derivatives industry.
