NEX Group is the new name given to the former ICAP when the company merged with Tullett Prebon and sold off its brokerage business to Tullett. The deal gave the ICAP brand to the brokerage business now owned by Tullet and rebranded the rest of ICAP as NEX Group. The renaming completes the company's shift from voice broking to specializing in electronic markets and post-trade services.[1]

Before the name change, ICAP had already lowered the number of telephone brokers it employed by 8.6 percent from the previous year.

The new Tullet-owned brokerage business was named TP ICAP.

NEX Group incorporates a number of entities into its business, some of which were previously acquired by ICAP. Those include:

  • Abide Financial, a global regulatory reporting specialist that ICAP acquired in October 2016
  • EBS BrokerTec
  • ENSO, a financial technology company NEX acquired in early 2017
  • Euclid Opportunities, NEX Group’s financial technology investment business
  • NEX Data
  • NEX Exchange
  • Reset
  • Traiana
  • TriOptima


See "History" on the ICAP MarketsWiki page.
