Margins at Infinox Capital appear to have increased at a critical time for the industry, just before the introduction of new regulatory restrictions for retail clients in the EU.

Highlighting the rapid pace of growth for the firm since it launched in 2009, Berkeley elaborated that the company was recognized for the second year running in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 league table ranking of Britain’s fastest-growing private tech (TMT) companies. Infinox placed 14th in 2017 and 15th in 2018.
“Our commitment to innovation and technology will help us meet the challenges that lie ahead with the ever-changing regulatory landscape. New products releases are due in the Q4 2018 which will enhance our drive to deliver ‘Trading Power’ to our retail and institutional clients worldwide,” Berkeley shared.
Infinox Capital managed to attract enough customers to cushion the introduction of new leverage restrictions in Europe. Companies with a significant capital buffer into the new era for the brokerage industry in the EU have a higher chance of successfully adapting to the new operating environment.
The company rebranded from GO Markets UK back in 2016. The commitment to building up a new brand has paid off well for the firm over the past couple of years. Last year the revenues of Infinox doubled from the year of the rebranding.
