INTL FCStone Inc. (NASDAQ: INTL) today announced that the Broker-Dealer Division of its wholly owned subsidiary, INTL FCStone Financial Inc. (“the Company”), was ranked as the #1 market maker in 2018 for international securities traded over-the-counter (OTC), and #1 by dollar value traded for approximately 2,700 foreign securities, according to data from FINRA’s Over-the-Counter Reporting Facility and Bloomberg RANK. This is the fourth consecutive year the Company has held these rankings, emphasizing its unique position in trading American depositary receipts (ADRs) and international securities, and its success in the marketplace.

In 2018, INTL FCStone Financial traded over $49 billion in value OTC, which was 60% higher than the closest financial services firm and ~16% of the total OTC value reported. This marks an increase of ~68% year-over-year as compared to the ~$29 billion worth of trades that the Company reported with 2017’s number one rank.

Jacob Rappaport, Head of Equities at INTL FCStone Financial Inc., commented on today’s news, “We are very proud of our team for retaining the rank as #1 market maker in OTC ADRs and foreign securities for the fourth consecutive year. This continued success and the unprecedented volume traded in 2018 was due to the hard work of our talented team and the confidence of our global client base.  We remain committed to providing best-in-class service and liquidity to our clients and helping them grow their businesses. We feel that our rapidly expanding institutional client base further benefits our legacy clients by complementing our firm capital with a greater pool of natural liquidity.  We look forward to continued growth and expansion across our Equites platform alongside our clients in 2019.”
