Plus500 announced it is appointing Jefferies International Limited ('Jefferies') as a Joint Corporate Broker to the firm, effective immediately. Jefferies will operate alongside Plus500's existing corporate broker, Liberum Capital Limited.

Plus500 Q1 revenue increased year-over-year, which is good news for the broker.

David Zruia, the CEO at Plus500, said: "Plus500 has produced excellent results for Q1 2022, continuing our significant operational and financial momentum over recent years, and validating our clear strategic roadmap.

"Our ongoing investments in developing our position as a global multi-asset fintech group will enable future growth. In particular, we continue to make organic investments in technology, marketing and our people, as well as actively targeting additional acquisitions and initiating potential strategic partnerships."

However, the company's new clients' figures are still failing to take off.

In Q1, 33,740 new clients joined the broker compared to 89,406 in Q1 of 2021. This is a -62% drop. The number of active traders between January and March dropped to 176,642. A -32% decline against 269,743 clients over the same quarter in 2021.

The broker recently announced a new share buyback program.
