Founder Lars Holst, with over 20 years of experience, including co-founder and CEO of CFH, successfully exited in 2017. With a passion for new technologies, Lars decided to create new modern infrastructure for FX and CFD trading as well as bring credibility and institutional-grade processes and technologies to the digital asset space.


“There have been two decades of ‘broker-in-a-box’ services, but not much has changed, GCEX will be more like ‘crypto-in-a-box’, with new technology and institutional infrastructure for digital assets.”


Lars assembled a world-class team to tackle both the digital and traditional aspects of GCEX and provide a bridge for traditional financial services. GCEX utilises many years of technology development from the foreign exchange market and has a strong ethos of being regulated and compliant, automating many aspects to reduce the cost to our clients. Automation, AI and ML being another cornerstone of GCEX to build future market dominance.

GCEX was established in 2018 in response to demand for regulated and compliant exposure to the digital asset market. In 2019, we gained regulatory approval and were authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority(FRN 828730).

GCEX allows clients to automate on-boarding, offer and trade digital assets and currencies with tight spreads and deep liquidity from Tier 1 banks. In addition to our Tier 1 FX and CFD offering, as of January 2020, GCEX offers spot products for cryptoassets and custody with our insured custodians.

At GCEX we set out to disrupt the technology and pricing framework for existing institutional brokerage, while simultaneously integrating all necessary components for leading the growing promise of digital asset trading including security tokens and digital currencies.

Many more exciting innovations to come are we continue to grow.
