What it means to be a Leucadia Company
Beginning in January 2015, through a series of transactions, Leucadia Investments has become the majority economic owner of FXCM. Leucadia Investments is part of the merchant banking arm of Jefferies Financial Group. FXCM has benefited from the scale and breadth of the Jefferies family of companies. Firmly committed to FXCM's success, Leucadia/Jefferies Managing Director, Jimmy Hallac, is the Chairman of FXCM Group, while Rich Handler and Brian Friedman, Jefferies' CEO and President respectively, both sit on the FXCM Board of Directors. Our customers, employees and stakeholders benefit greatly from the Leucadia/Jefferies affiliation.
Who is Leucadia? Financial Size and Strength
Leucadia is the former name of Jefferies Financial Group Inc. (NYSE: JEF) and part of its merchant banking business. Jefferies operates the only independent full-service global investment banking firm headquartered in the U.S., together with an established merchant banking business with a proven track record. Jefferies engages in investment banking, sales and trading and asset management through Jefferies Group LLC and diverse other businesses in its merchant banking portfolio.
The FXCM and Leucadia/Jefferies Partnership
Providing insight, expertise and execution to investors, companies and government entities, Jefferies provides FXCM with prime brokerage services and liquidity in FX trading. While Jefferies competes equally with all of FXCM's liquidity providers, the FXCM and Jefferies relationship is another way that the Leucadia/Jefferies relationship helps FXCM improve the service we provide our clients.
