BGC’s origins date back to 1945 when B. Gerald Cantor founded what became Cantor Fitzgerald. Cantor, a true pioneer, envisioned a new way of trading: a world-class brokerage service for inter-dealer fixed income markets. This service would be based on careful attention to customer service and innovation in business and technology, principles which are fundamental to BGC today.
