Commenting on the unification, Martin Cox, CEO & Founder of GC Partners, said: “The breadth of our offering comes at a time where institution’s budgets are under increasing pressure – smaller and mid-size asset managers need reliable, bespoke and cost-effective services that give a competitive edge.”

Founded in 2003, GCEN primarily serviced the retail market whereas GCS, which was established in 2013, offered its services to institutional and corporate clients.

As part of its core services, GC Partners with facilitate international payments through FX, as well as provide active and passive hedging solutions, to give its clients control on hedge ratios and overall forex exposure, among other services, the statement said.
