OANDA Europe has just filed its annual accounts with the UK Companies House, reporting a profit of £1.27 million for the full year 2016. The number contrasts with a loss of £1.54 million in 2015. The figure is a result of changes to OANDA’s internal hedging models with the flow from certain instruments from the Australian subsidiary of the firm being transferred into the UK unit.
Total active accounts increased 22 percent from 10,959 to 13,404, while turnover rose 81 percent to £16.6 million. Among those figures £5.68 million were allocated from its parent company OANDA Corporation and £9.89 million were from OANDA Australia Pty.
Due to the corporate restructuring of flows, the results are not indicative of the company’s performance. OANDA’s parent company is a private entity headquartered in San Francisco.
