“This has been a period of outstanding performance with record revenues and profits. Since we launched our new strategy three years ago, the group has transformed from a UK-centric CFD-focused firm to a global financial technology company with a multi-product trading platform. One of the key factors behind the success of this transformation is our ‘global reach, local focus’ which allows us to act with agility to tailor our offerings. Our outstanding growth in Japan is a strong illustration of this approach,” June Felix, the Chief Executive Officer at IG Group, said.
