A Strong Year for Pepperstone UK

Pepperstone Limited operates in the United Kingdom with authorization from the Financial Conduct Authority. It offers leveraged contracts for differences and spread betting products to retail and professional clients.

“The Company’s license does not allow it to take on any market risk, and therefore, all market risk is borne by the Company’s affiliate company PepperStone Group Limited,” the latest Companies House filing stated. “As a part of this process, clients deposit monies directly with the Company’s designated client money bank accounts.”

According to the latest income statement, the UK-based company registered massive revenue gains from its other income sources, which jumped to over £10.5 million from merely £366,177 a year before.

The gross profit from the trading revenue came in at almost £11.9 million after considering a sales cost of £2.03 million, which increased from £1.5 million in the previous fiscal year. Interestingly, the company’s employee and legal and professional expenses went down. However, its marketing expenses more than tripled to £1.6 million.

The total expense of the UK subsidiary for the fiscal year came in at £9.8 million, an increase from the previous fiscal year’s £4.9 million. Its pre-tax profit for the period stood at £12.6 million, compared to £4.6 million in the previous year.

The filing revealed that client funds held by the company grew to over £30 million during the closed fiscal year, taking the total funds to £25.16 million. However, the total figure was below the previous year’s figures of £28.9 million.

“Whilst future predictions and trends are difficult to make, the Company is fully committed to developing an offering that appeals to professional traders and retail clients who are generally more experienced and better informed about derivatives and financial markets than the average person,” the filing added.
