CLS Group Notches Staunch Reversal in June Volumes

An unexpected swath of volatility triggered a strong uptick in trading and settlement at CLS Group in June.

CLS Group, a provider of risk mitigation and operational services, has reported its latest tranche of volumes and aggregation services statistics for June 2016 – the figures highlight an abrupt reversal off of the past few months, which had been in the middle of an unabated downward trajectory, according to a recent CLS statement.

While the 2016 calendar year has largely seen a downward trend in its settlement figures, June 2016 allayed any such path, sharply rebounding across the board after being sparked by the Brexit vote. The unexpected decision of the vote, coupled with a tsunami of volatility in the aftermath helped kindle CLS’s latest figures, which has been the case for all other institutional venues during the month.
