KCG Holdings Inc. (KCG) is the name given to the former Knight Capital Group after it was acquired by GETCO in the summer of 2013 for $1.4 billion. KCG is the merged entity. The company offers trade execution to broker-dealers and institutional investors across all capital markets. It also owns a majority stake in hedge fund manager Deephaven Holdings.

In June 2013, right before the GETCO acquisition, Knight Capital acquired the futures division of Penson Financial Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Penson Worldwide, Inc., and renamed it KCG Futures. Through this acquisition, Knight also assumed Penson's seats and memberships at exchanges including: CBOT, KCBOT, NYSE Euronext and Eurex.
