Future outlook for Finotec Trading
Finotec Trading is a subsidiary of Israel-based firm Yedidya Capital Markets Limited. Since going live in May of this year, the broker has managed to raise more than $2.2 million assets under management. Taking a look to the future, the firm has set its soft target as reaching an income of $5 million by the beginning of 2019 and a hard target of hitting $50 million by the end of next year.
In addition, the firm is currently exploring the possibility of a corporate transaction with its parent company. The purpose of this is to integrate the revenues generated from management and performance fees with Finotec Trading.
