Quoting Management: “Following our successful acquisition of GFT’s U.S. business in December of 2012, we recognized that combining GAIN’s operations with GFT was a significant opportunity to grow our business across the spectrum of retail and institutional products. The combined company will have a deeper global footprint, a robust offering of more than 12,500 financial products, and industry-leading trading platforms and tools. Our larger scale will also enhance GAIN’s ability to take advantage of improved market conditions, while providing greater resilience at times of weak volatility,” said Glenn Stevens, CEO of GAIN Capital. “This combination builds upon GAIN’s strong track record as a successful industry consolidator and creates an even more robust platform for future consolidation and growth.”
