Knight Futures was the futures commission merchant subsidiary of Knight Capital Group. Knight acquired the futures commission merchant business of Penson Financial Services, Inc. in 2012, and renamed it Knight Futures. In September 2014, KCG Holdings Inc. agreed to sell its futures commission merchant business to Wedbush Securities Inc.


Knight Futures traces its history back to the founding of Goldenberg Hehmeyer ("GHCO") back in 1985.

GHGO was acquired by Penson Worldwide in 2007. The firm was originally called Penson GHCO. Penson Worldwide had also acquired First Ag Capitol, and Wolcott & Lincoln, LLC, an FCM located at the Kansas City Board of Trade.
