Despite significantly higher revenues, rising operational costs in 2022 led to a noticeable net loss for the operators of popular brokerage brands, such as XM and Trading.com. Trading Point of Financial Instruments UK Limited (Trading Point) reported a net loss of £1.09 million last year.

Trading Point Sees Higher Revenues but Also a Significant Loss

Trading Point is a company licensed by the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) that manages popular brands in the retail investment market. According to a report recently published in the UK's Companies House, the company's revenues increased over £300,000, rising from £705,077 reported in 2021 to £1,054,038 last year.

During 2022, the company's operational expenses also increased, rising from £1.8 million to £2.27 million. As a result, the total net loss stood at £1.09 million. A small consolation may be that the loss in 2021 was even greater, amounting to £1.17 million. Further analysis of the Trading Point report revealed that the company's total assets significantly decreased over the year from £2.6 million to £1.6 million, as did its total equity from £2.4 million to £1.3 million.

It should also be noted that a significant portion of the company's operations is carried out by an entity registered in Cyprus, Trading Point Of Financial Instruments Ltd. The above financial data pertains only to the UK-based entity.

Finance Magnates previously reported that another UK broker, FxPro, additionally failed to achieve profitability despite a surge in revenue in 2022.

Trading Point Expands into the US Market

Last year, Trading.com announced its entry into the US market, offering over 70 trading pairs to American traders. This move was signaled when the brand received approval from the National Futures Association and registered as a retail forex dealer with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The company stated back then that based on numerous discussions with US retail traders, it identified a gap in what traditional forex dealers offer compared to what clients actually need.

Launched in 2019 by Trading Point, the company behind the forex and CFDs broker XM, Trading.com has been a significant addition to its portfolio. The company even transitioned XM's UK clientele to the new platform after its introduction.
