One Global Markets Ends FY2020 in Loss despite Revenue Gain

The broker significantly reduced the cost of sales last year.

FCA-registered One Global Markets Limited (OGM), a forex and CFDs broker, has published its yearly financials for the financial year 2020, ending on September 30. Though there was an increase in the turnover of the company, it ended the period in losses.

As detailed in the Companies House filing, the revenue of the brokerage came in at £432,491, gaining 5.7 percent from the previous year’s figures. However, the company ended up with a loss of £63,949. Notably, it turned a profit of £1,201 in the previous year.

OGM acts as an agency broker, meaning it offers over-the-counter (OTC) trading services. Additionally, it offers forex and CFDs instruments to both retail and professional clients. 

“As an agency broker, OGM’s business model is predicated exclusively on driving client volumes which have a direct correlation to company revenues. Revenues are thus a function of volumes,” the broker explained.

It derives its revenues from three sources: spread markup, commissions, and swap premiums.
