StoneX reported a jump of 20% in operating revenue from securities transactions. Global payments revenue reached $32.8 million in the last quarter, which is up by 14% compared to the same period in 2020.
StoneX highlighted a significant spike in operating revenues from FX/CFD contracts, which is mainly due to the recent acquisition of Gain Capital Holdings.
“Operating revenues from FX/CFD contracts increased $65.8 million, to $74.7 million in the three months ended March 31, 2021, as a result of an incremental $71.2 million in retail FX/CFD contracts operating revenues resulting from the acquisition of Gain Capital Holdings, Inc. (‘Gain’) which was partially offset by lower FX operating revenues in our legacy FX prime brokerage business,” the company mentioned in the official press release.
The financial services provider saw a jump of 108% in operating revenues from physical contracts due to strong customer demand for precious metals.
