UK-based Hantec Markets, a foreign exchange (FX) and contracts-for-difference (CFD) broker, has unveiled its financial statement for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018. The FCA-regulated firm’s latest report was characterized by improved metrics in areas ranging from operating income to revenues, according to its latest filing with the UK’s Companies House.
In terms of the aggregated financial results, by the end of June 2018, Hantec Markets put together a strong year-over-year performance relative to 2017 figures.
Specifically, Hantec Markets witnessed a notable advance in its operating revenues, which came in at $6.97 million (£5.3 million) – this figure shows an uptick from the $5.41 million (£3.84 million) reported back in the same period a year ago, namely higher 38 percent year-over-year.
In terms of its operating income, the figure was even stronger, having yielded a profit of $1.48 million (£1.12 million) compared to an operating loss of $305,000 (£216,666) for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017.
