Management Commentary

"In October, customers were migrated off a legacy GFT trading platform as part of the Company's planned City Index integration activities.  This resulted in decreased trading activity in the month as customers transitioned onto new trading technology. In addition, a number of underperforming partners were terminated in advance of the platform migration, which also contributed to the decline in trading volume during the month," remarked Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer.
