Dear clients, partners, friends and colleagues,
This is a very special edition of our newsletter as today we celebrate our 10th Birthday – time indeed flies when you’re having fun!
When our CIO Tony Harrop and I co-founded the company – initially called Forum Trading Holdings Limited before renaming to GMEX Group Limited – on 31st May 2012 alongside key members of the team, most of whom are still with us today, we had about 6 months of runway. We did not know how we would get beyond the end of the year, yet believed in what we were doing with our ‘exchange-in-a-box’ trading and post trade solutions model. This became known as GMEX Fusion with the addition of digital assets in January 2018.
Today we look forward to an exciting new chapter in our development, with GMEX Fusion and our MultiHub ‘multi-asset network of networks’ positioned to bridge the gap between TradFi and DeFi and satisfy the market need for Hybrid Finance (HyFi). We are also delighted to be welcoming Burkhan as our lead investor to support us in our growth journey.
This is a very exciting time for the development of digital capital markets, as part of a broader digital transformation agenda, and we thank you for your support over the last decade. We look forward to collaborating with you all for many years to come.
Chairman & CEO, GMEX Group
