Penson Futures, a division of Penson Financial Services, Inc, a registered Futures Commission Merchant providing execution and clearing services on the world’s major exchanges and a member of the Penson Worldwide, Inc. group (NASDAQ: PNSN), announced today that it is actively clearing Futures business on BM&FBOVESPA, Brazil’s leading financial exchange.

The BM&FBOVESPA is the second largest exchange in the Americas in terms of market value, and the largest in Latin America. The BM&FBOVESPA processing engine presents settlement differences from North American exchanges, and Penson Futures simplifies this process, transforming the trading activity at BM&F into easy-to-read statements.

Penson Futures CEO John Streich said, “Penson Futures clients requested access to and clearing of BM&FBOVESPA and we made it happen. Our involvement in Brazil will expand our clearing capabilities, exchange memberships and client services to further empower our valued clients.”

BM&FBOVESPA is based in Sao Paulo and was formed in 2008 through the merger of the Sao Paulo Stock Exchange and the Brazilian Mercantile and Futures Exchange.
