AETOS Capital Group UK Limited (AETOS UK), the wholly owned subsidiary of Australian broker AETOS Capital Group, has published its annual report and financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2018.
Looking at the results, the firm experienced a strong financial year, bouncing back from disappointing financial results experienced in the 2017 fiscal year. According to the report, this was thanks to an increase in its client base numbers following the upgrade of its Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) license.
AETOS UK highlights its key performance areas as turnover and net assets. During the 12 months ended March 31, 2018, the firm had a total turnover of £2.1 million ($2.8 million). When compared to the same period last year, which record a turnover of £30,268, this is an increase of 98 percent.
