Trading update

Alpha FX Group plc (AIM:AFX), a founder led, UK-based foreign exchange service provider, today provides a trading update for the six month period ended 30 June 2018.

The Board is pleased to report that revenue for the period is expected to be approximately £9.6 million, representing an increase of over 50% on the corresponding period last year. This performance has been derived from strong growth in our core UK corporate market supplemented by increasing traction in both Europe (with employees based from our London office) and the institutional division which launched in March. The period has seen increased investment across our business, including a number of key hires made in both the corporate and institutional divisions, to support the continuing growth of the business. 

Based on the performance in the period and the outlook for the second half, the Board remains confident that earnings for the full year will be in line with expectations.

Morgan Tillbrook, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Alpha said:

"We are delighted with the continued progress of the business. Our core market continues to go from strength to strength whilst the new business in Europe and the initial success of our institutional division gives us confidence for the future."
