Trading update

Alpha FX Group plc (AIM:AFX), a UK-based foreign exchange service provider to the corporate and institutional market, today announces a trading update for the year ended 31 December 2018.

Following the previous trading update of 25 September 2018, the Board is pleased to announce that trading has continued to be strong and it expects earnings for the year ending 31 December 2018 to be ahead of market expectations.

This favourable performance has been achieved across the Group and continues to validate the investments that have been made to date. Both the corporate business (including UK and international clients) and the newly established institutional subsidiary performed strongly. It is expected that the next financial year will see further increases in investment to take full advantage of market opportunities, including ongoing investment in technology and back-office infrastructure as well as increased costs relating to the recently launched operation in Canada.

Alpha intends to publish its final results for the year ending 31 December 2018 in March 2019.
