Cantor Fitzgerald was founded as a bond brokerage firm in 1945 by Bernard Gerald Cantor. By 1972 it had become the world's first electronic marketplace for the U.S. Government Securities. In 1996, Cantor launched a fully electronic trading platform called eSpeed. In 2004, Cantor separated this business to form BGC Partners, named for Bernard Gerald Cantor.
Cantor Fitzgerald is privately owned as opposed to BGC Partners, which is publically traded on NASDAQ. Cantor Fitzgerald controls about 20% of BGC's economic ownership.
