The quarterly expanse of the financial group increased despite a yearly decline in revenue. Between July and September, its expenses for the three months came in at 20.3 billion yen.

The pre-tax profit for the quarter came in at 996 million yen, which is lower than 1.07 billion yen in the previous quarter and 7.16 billion yen in Q2 FY22.

Monex Group Expanding Key Divisions

Monex Group’s business can be divided into four key segments: crypto exchange Coincheck, US online broker TradeStation, Japanese online broker Monex and a few other brands in the Asia-Pacific.

Tradestation’s operating income improved by $18.6 million quarter-over-quarter, pulling it from a loss in Q1 to a profit of $3.5 million in Q2. Additionally, the American trading platform changed its strategy to focus on sophisticated and active traders, which resulted in an $8.9 quarterly advertising expense reduction.

Monex’s crypto business, which Coincheck drives, generated a loss of around 400 million yen during the quarter due to the slowdown in trading activities. However, the group continued to expand its services in this division.
