Apex Clearing Corporation is an independent clearing joint-venture between Peak6 Investments and Penson Financial Services. The firm plans to acquire Penson's customer accounts and clearing contacts as well as $90 million of its liabilities and net assets to cover regulatory capital requirements. Apex, privately held and functioning as a clearing house, aims to increase stability in the markets by mitigating both firms' risk exposure. [1] Peak6 will provide capital, the management team, day-to-day operational oversight, and risk management discipline necessary to run the business.


Peak6 Investments and Penson Worldwide Inc. announced the creation of Apex in June of 2012. The move by Penson, in conjunction with the sale of its futures division to Knight Capital, signifies the firms desire to exit the futures space. [2]
