What it means to be a Leucadia Company

Beginning in January 2015, through a series of transactions, Leucadia has become the majority economic owner of FXCM. FXCM has benefited from the scale and breadth of the Leucadia family of companies – especially Leucadia’s wholly owned subsidiary Jefferies. Firmly committed to FXCM’s success, Leucadia Managing Director, Jimmy Hallac, is the Chairman of FXCM Group, while Rich Handler and Brian Friedman, Leucadia’s CEO and President respectively, both sit on the FXCM Board of Directors. Our customers, employees and stakeholders benefit greatly from the Leucadia affiliation.
