The company’s institutional division, which was led for quite some time by prominent industry figure Francois Nembrini during his twelve years at FXCM, was initially established in 2004 and had offices in New York.

The relaunch of FXCMPro will involve the division providing high and medium frequency funds access to prime brokerage via FXCM Prime.

In April 2015, FXCM announced that as a separate matter from the institutional non-core assets the firm has announced planned to sell, FXCM will continue various institutional services.

At that time, FXCM’s Institutional department, FXCM Pro, was set to focus heavily on its wholesale business, which would continue catering to retail brokers, small hedge funds and emerging market banks while FXCM’s Prime of Prime business, FXCM Prime, was set to focus on high frequency trading customers (HFTs).

Later that year FXCM looked at selling FXCMPro, however the relaunch now encompasses FXCM’s return to strength as a leading corporate entity.

Brandon Mulvihill, Global Head of Sales at FXCM Pro stated, “We are thrilled to unveil our clearing solution within our new website. FXCM Prime provides clients access to multiple trading venues, allowing for direct relationships between traders and liquidity management experts at each ECN provider. FXCM Prime fills the void of settling trades done across all platforms, with over 15 platforms available to clients. This agnostic approach is exactly what tier one prime brokers provide, and this is a rare service found in the secondary prime market.”

Mr. Mulvihill added, “Onboarding timelines for new customers can be as swift as two weeks. We do not deploy a minimum asset requirement, and our balance requirement to start is $250,000.”

FinanceFeeds’ FX industry figure of 2016: Drew Niv, CEO, FXCM

“We believe that we need to bring the data transparency into FX. In other asset classes this is normal, and there is real market depth, and a volume indicator displayed on the platform. Even in short term equities, nobody would trade without a volume indicator but in FX they do trade without it. HFT traders do have the means of looking at volume and market depth, but they pay a fortune to get it.” – Drew Niv, CEO FXCM

FastMatch: Leucadia’s sensible, profitable and institutional savior. The rest of FXCM is fire-sale material Op Ed

If it is to save itself from shareholder litigation and massive corporate embarrassment, Leucadia could pick up FXCM’s 32% share in FastMatch for pretty much nothing. Bearing in mind ICE tried to buy FastMatch just over a year ago for $200-$250 million, this would put Leucadia in a good position and remove any whiff of association with FXCM from the ECN’s copybook.
