The IFM provides quality information and education related to futures, options and other derivatives in order to increase public understanding of the importance of financial markets and financial service industry to the global economy and improve the technical competence of those in the industry who deal with the public.
The IFM is an affiliate of the Futures Industry Association, but operates autonomously as an independent foundation. It is governed by a Board of Trustees, separate and apart from the FIA Board of Directors. The Institute does not engage in any lobbying or political activities.
The IFM is qualified as a nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code. The Institute funds its activities and development of new services from two principal sources: the sale of its products and services and the generous contributions from a broad range of financial institutions, exchanges, brokerage firms, and participants from a variety of market sectors.
