NIBA was established as a not-for-profit association in 1991. Before NIBA existed, Introducing Brokers (IBs) and Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) had no central organization to ensure that they were represented within the industry. Now, through the efforts of dedicated members and volunteers, NIBA has continued to grow in both size and influence and is well respected throughout the markets.
