Trading Update

 

Alpha FX Group plc (AIM: AFX), a leading provider of high-tech, high-touch FX risk management and alternative banking solutions to corporates and institutions globally, today announces a trading update for the financial year ending 31 December 2021.

 

Following our interim results announcement on 1 September 2021, the Board is pleased to announce that trading has remained strong. Growth continues to be derived from the Group's core Corporate & Institutional FX Risk Management divisions in London, alongside record half year performances, already achieved in H2 to date, from all three of the Group's newer divisions: Alpha Netherlands, Alpha Canada and Alpha Platform Solutions.

 

We anticipated in our interim report that as part of our strategy to invest for future growth, costs would accelerate in the second half of the year as the restrictions posed by COVID eased further. This has indeed been the case, in particular from increased hiring in both Front and Back Office across all divisions.

 

Despite this increase in costs, as a result of the continued strong trading since 1 September 2021, the Board now expects that revenue and earnings for the year will be ahead of most recent expectations.

 

A more detailed trading update will be provided as usual in January 2022.
