Management Commentary

"In Q3 2015, GAIN continued to make strong progress on the integration of City Index, which included a positive response from both legacy GAIN and City Index clients, as well as new customers.  The Q3 2015 retail trading environment was more favorable relative to Q2 2015 with higher volatility in indices and commodities resulting in a quarterly retail revenue capture per million in the mid- to high-$90s, generally in line with GAIN's trailing twelve month average," remarked Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer.
