Top Third has unveiled its new brand and service offerings following its acquisition by StoneX Group Inc. (NASDAQ:SNEX)

"Our mission to serve the American farmer guides us every day,'' said Top Third Founder and Managing Director Mark Gold. "In the spirit and continued fulfillment of this mission, our one-on-one broker relationships remain the same, and I will continue to be fully engaged and working closely with our team. I believe this new direction will be an opportunity to enhance marketing opportunities in a positive way, as our clients have access to many more marketing tools and resources through the StoneX brand."

StoneX finalized the acquisition of GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:GCAP) and its subsidiary company, Global Asset Advisors, LLC (GAA), last year. GAA brands Top Third Ag Marketing, Daniels Trading and Futures Online are now part of the StoneX global financial services network.

"This is an exciting time for both StoneX and Top Third," said StoneX CEO Sean O'Connor. "StoneX is furthering its commitment to serving the agricultural commodity trading space and is well positioned to pursue a new customer segment within that space. Top Third, a respected brand among American farmers, has always pursued a relationship-focused, customer-first approach, which aligns with our commitment to providing hands-on client service. Top Third will significantly enhance StoneX's ability to provide risk management expertise to the agricultural industry — from family-owned businesses to large corporations — offering the personalized assistance they need to be successful."

StoneX provides institutional access to 36 derivative exchanges, 175 foreign exchange markets, nearly every global securities marketplace and a number of bilateral liquidity venues. Additionally, StoneX offers retail market access via FOREX.com and City Index, among other platforms.

For Top Third clients, StoneX offers a unique set of capabilities beyond the comprehensive market access described above. These include assistance in developing integrated risk management strategies, a robust and fully digital global market intelligence platform, and access to highly customizable over-the-counter (OTC) swaps and structured products typically available only through large international banks.

Top Third clients will also have access to physical commodity capabilities that include inventory financing, logistics support and margin-free merchandising programs, including the company's flagship managed bushels program, Merchants Plus (M+).

As part of its integration into StoneX, Top Third recently introduced a new company logo that creates a stronger visual connection between the two brands. This new look will be integrated into all Top Third communications going forward. In addition, all Top Third employees and brokers are now using StoneX-branded emails. The new email address style will generally be firstname.lastname@stonex.com, and emails to the current topthird.com addresses will be forwarded. The company website, https://www.topthird.com/, will remain the same for now, but will eventually transition to StoneX.com.
