Hanover Securities is a new name in the industry but one of the most experienced teams of government guaranteed loan (GGL) secondary market trading professionals in the nation.
The history of the firm lies with the history of its principals, who have devoted their lengthy careers to the niche, GGL secondary markets. Over the years, the team has expanded to include all of the skill sets vital to any GGL trading operation, including sales, trading, and operations staff – all specially focused on the guaranteed loan markets. The final, unifying factor in the development of the organization came with the addition of John Hanover, who became a partner and general counsel for the group before founding Hanover Securities.
