Last year, GCM Prime was joined by Levy Bennaroch as Chief Operating Officer. He will be joining the company’s Board and succeeding Mr Long.

Throughout the year, the former directors of GCM, Salvatore Buccellato and Glenn Ward, left the company’s board in September and June respectively. The recent bankruptcy of Gallant Capital Markets prompted the company to clarify that it doesn’t share a similar management structure with the BVI-regulated broker, where Buccellato is a senior executive.

The London-based prime of prime brokerage recently reported its financial results for 2016. The company’s revenues amounted to £1.5 million between April and December last year. GCM Prime posted a gross profit of £171,514, with an operating loss of £227,174.

The firm raised additional capital last year, totaling over £4.2 million, with the total share capital of the company as of the end of last year amounting to £7.27 million. The figure is more than double the previous amount reported at the end of March 2016.
