Marex has announced its plans to acquire Volcap Trading. The new addition will further expand the group’s offering in structured products and commodities.

Volcap will add to our softs offering and will be a good fit with our fast-growing structured products business, Marex Solutions, which has been an important success for the firm. This addition will not only diversify our earnings but will expand Marex into several new and interesting markets. It is a good example of acquiring an innovative, fast-growing, business that is straightforward to integrate and strengthens our overall client product offering.
