International Assets Holding is a commodities, foreign exchange and securities brokerage that aspires to become the global leader in risk management services.

The company revved up its futures operations with the acquisition of commodity risk management and consulting firm FCStone last September. The reported $130 million stock deal widened International Assets' business to include such commodities as crude oil, wheat, and corn. For the first nine months of the year, operating revenues rose 163%, mostly as a result of the FCStone deal. The company also acquired Hanley Group Capital, an agricultural hedging firm, this year.
