Marex posted strong gains in 2021. Volatility in metals and agriculture franchises contributed to a +31% increase in 2021 revenue. The net revenue in 2021 reached $543 million.

Officials Remarks

Ian Lowitt, the CEO of Marex, said: “We are proud of these results, which reflect a strong organic performance as we continue to drive forward our growth initiatives, diversifying our business by adding products to our service segments and expanding geographically. These more than offset a headwind from very low-interest rates.

“Although the current macroeconomic environment is volatile, we have successfully navigated the recent geopolitical disruption in the commodities markets, carefully managing risk and maintaining a strong capital and liquidity position throughout.

"We continue to steer our clients through a very challenging period, whilst complying fully with government sanctions.

“We have seen a very strong start to 2022. Looking ahead, I am confident that we will continue to deliver strong growth, both organically and through strategic bolt-on acquisitions, as we continue to build on our strategic growth plans.

"Furthermore, inflation in the real economy will likely translate into rising short-term interest rates, which is also positive for our business.”
