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, 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.
