Operating profits were also pointed higher during FY 2017. Looking at the group’s final numbers for the financial year, which factored out interest receivable and other income, AFX Group reported gains of $1.86 million (£1.42 million). This figure is seven times higher year-over-year from $238,000 (£182,803), by far its largest growth segment.
One of the group’s most noteworthy findings was the distribution of its revenues. Out of the aforementioned revenue figure, the firm generated £1.71 million, which is a more than four-fold increase from £410,000 the previous year. On the other end, the Cypriot brokerage earned total proceeds of £2.04 million, relative to £1.24 in 2016 .
AFX Group is the second largest European subsidiary of AFX Markets. The group has maintained an active emphasis on an MT4 offering for foreign exchange, contracts-for-difference (CFDs), and spread betting services.
In 2016, the boutique financial investment firm consolidated a range of its products under two brands including its Quantic and STO offerings, part of its overall brand structure.
