BCS Global Markets is the new kid on the block and a fast growing broker/dealer. Having founded a successful business in Russia it is now diversifying into western markets.
It recently became the first Russian investment bank to get access to the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and has a big office in London. Non-Russian business already makes up some 60% of its revenues and with a tie up with Tigress Partners in the US it hopes to continue to build up this new business.
