Customer Protections

CME Group established the $100 million Family Farmer and Rancher Protection fund to provide further protection of customer segregated funds for U.S. family farmers and ranchers who use CME Group markets to hedge their crops and livestock.

The Fund provides eligible farmers and ranchers up to $25,000 per participant and eligible cooperatives up to $100,000 per cooperative to protect against losses resulting from the future insolvency of a clearing member or market participant.
