Just last week, GCM Prime added another key hire in Adam Toro, the longtime FXCM and financial services executive that joined the company as its CEO. Speaking at the time on the appointment in an exclusive statement to Finance Magnates, Mr. Toro noted: “As an industry leader, FXCM afforded me tremendous opportunities to grow and to learn all facets of the brokerage business. With GCM Prime poised to take advantage of the highly fragmented market space, the opportunity to build a team of experienced professionals was too enticing to pass up.”
GCM Prime is a UK regulated broker that provides an end-to-end solution for brokers including white label trading platforms, back office solutions, and access to liquidity from a variety of trading venues. The group also has recently unveiled plans for targeting high frequency traders (HFT) that can integrate their aggregated liquidity streams via API – available liquidity is slated to include foreign exchange (FX), contracts-for-difference (CFDs), and metal trading.
