Cantor Fitzgerald, which launched a prime brokerage business three years ago, is expanding its suite of services for financial firms.
Cantor is planning Cantor Clearing. The new business will offer clearing services, of course, as well as settlement and technology solutions, the firm said, using SunGard's clearing and settlement solutions system.
