Today, LMAX Exchange releases its 2015 results that show the company delivered on its core growth objectives despite a small financial loss. The results show continued growth in institutional client acquisition and margined client funds, further global expansion, product diversification and futureproofing of its exchange technology. This was achieved against a backdrop of reduced credit availability, low volatility, low interest rates and gapping markets following removal of the Swiss Franc peg in January 2015.
It was a year of investment and consolidation for the company with expansion in the Asia Pacific region, opening an office in Hong Kong and developing a Tokyo Exchange. LMAX Exchange continued to invest in its core technology to enable further international growth, culminating in the launch of a New York – based matching engine in September 2016.
The first nine months of 2016 have been productive for LMAX Exchange and it is expected to deliver significant profitability for the financial year ending December 2016.
David Mercer, CEO of LMAX Exchange commented, “2015 was a year of growth and investment, as LMAX Exchange went from strength to strength. This was achieved in an unhelpful macro-economic environment. Our performance to date in 2016 has been excellent and we fully expect a multi-million-pound profit this year.”
