London-listed broker Plus500 has announced this Tuesday that it continues to see a significantly increased level of customer trading activity in a trading update published through the London Stock Exchange (LSE) news service.

Following on from the company’s previous trading update earlier in the month, Plus500 has continued to see heightened levels of market Volatility , driven by the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in the increased trading activity.

“Performance across all financial and operational KPIs remains very strong, with the Group continuing to attract significant numbers of new customers at an attractive cost, and increased levels of activity from existing customers,” the company said today in the statement.

Furthermore, the Israel based broker said that following the strong performance achieved in the first quarter of 2020, it is seeing continuing momentum in the second quarter, with strong gains from customer trading performance, which is expected to be neutral over time.

“Notwithstanding the uncertainty regarding the duration of current levels of volatility or the unquantified potential impact from regulatory changes in Australia, revenue and profitability for the full year is expected to be substantially ahead of current consensus expectations, as revised following the Q1 trading update on 7 April,” Plus500 said.
