London, 09 December, 2015 G. H. Financials (“GHF”), a leading independent clearing provider of exchange-traded derivatives, has been named as Non-Bank Futures Commission Merchant (“FCM”) of the year by Futures and Options World (“FOW”). This will be the second consecutive year the clearing firm has won the award.
The FOW International Awards recognise the best and brightest in a range of industry categories. The winner of the Non-Bank FCM of the Year category had to demonstrate tangible innovations and growth over the past year.
During the period under consideration, GHF cleared close to 270,000,000 contracts, expanded its customer base and launched a number of innovative solutions for its customers. GHF also became one of the few non-bank General Clearing Members of Eurex and a Participant of the Hong Kong Clearing Corporation (“HKCC”) and the Hong Kong Futures Exchange (“HKFE”). In addition, GHF was accepted as the first ever remote clearing member of ASX Clear (Futures), and also as a trading member of ASX 24.
Publisher at FOW, Will Mitting, stated
“G. H. Financials takes home the award for non-bank FCM of the year for the second year running following a very successful year. Judges highlighted the remote clearing agreement with ASX and the clearing membership at Eurex Clearing as particularly notable achievements. As some banks pull away from the market, it is great to see innovative firms like GHF seizing the initiative and providing alternatives to clients.”
Mark Ibbotson, Group CEO of G. H. Financials, said
“GHF are committed to delivering innovative solutions for our growing customer base, as a leading specialist clearer of listed derivatives. We are honoured to be recognized once again by FOW as Non-Bank FCM of the Year.”
