GFI Group downtown NYC office inaccessible due to effects of Hurricane Sandy

All customers expected to be covered from back-up facilities while GFI's hybrid trading platforms continue to operate without interruption. The company is temporarily unable to use its New York City office, located at 55 Water Street, due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. While the company's offices are located on higher floors of the building and were not damaged by the storm, the company has been advised that the basement floors of 55 Water Street have been flooded by the storm surge and the power supply to the building has been interrupted.
