The Trean Group Story

Trean Group provides professional clearing, execution, consulting and brokerage services for individuals, institutions, professional traders, pure hedgers, farmers, electronic traders and floor traders.

The Trean Name

The word Trean is Gaelic for “strength” and that’s what we bring to the futures industry and our clients. Having witnessed the events at Refco, MFG and PFG firsthand we know that in these uncertain times futures customers need security, consistency and transparency while remaining flexible to the ever-changing financial landscape.

Our Story

The Trean Group story begins in the mid-2000’s when Nancy Stubenrauch, co-founder of Trean Group, managed Hammer Trading, a division of the now-defunct Refco. It was during her tenure at Hammer Trading that Nancy met and formed close working relationships with the other future Trean Group co-founders Pete Kosanovich and Stephen French. Following the bankruptcy of Refco and its purchase by Man Financial in 2008, the three of them began talks of branching out.

Talk turned into action in 2010 when Pete, Nancy and Steve left MF Global (formerly Man Financial) to launch the Trean Group, in order to best serve their existing client base.  

Whether it’s brokerage execution, clearing expertise, business relationships, or futures market knowhow each member of Trean Group adds a different personality and distinctive skill set. More than a business, we are a family of industry veterans who provide each client with our expertise and personal touch.
