With more than seven years in operational and data analysis roles at GCG, as well as previous experience as a lawyer and a commodities futures principal who held Series 3, 4, 7, 24, 55, and 63 securities licenses, Gerard Hanshe brings a unique perspective to GCG’s Securities and Complex Financial Products Team.  His particular expertise centers upon data intensive settlement administrations, those involving the processing of vast amounts of securities trading information. 

Mr. Hanshe has served as the project lead on several of GCG’s most high-profile, data intensive administrations, including the Bank of America Securities Litigation, the Converium Securities Litigation Settlement, and the Hewlett-Packard Securities Litigation. He has also managed GCG’s East Coast Operations Data Analysis and Graphics teams, overseeing the design and build of GCG’s settlement websites encompassing both claims filing functionality and client web portals.

Mr. Hanshe was a key member on the team that created and launched GCG ICE®, the secure, patent-protected website used by institutional investors, law firms, and claim filing companies to file and monitor claims electronically in securities class action lawsuits.  Drawing upon the experience he gained as a commodities futures principal, he also contributes significantly to GCG’s case reporting and analysis, using his advanced skills in SQL, SSRS, and Excel VBA to build a diverse portfolio of reports and interactive tools used by GCG’s Operations Team to run a broad spectrum of projects and improve upon business processes.

Prior to joining GCG, Mr. Hanshe practiced as an attorney handling case analysis and strategy development for tort and medical malpractice actions, as well as on business contracts and other corporate legal issues for a variety of business clients.  Earlier, he held roles as a registered principal, financial analyst, and equities trader at E*Trade Financial and Tradescape.com in New York, where he managed various operations functions of trading groups within the company and ensured compliance with securities laws, especially those related to options and futures trading.
