    GKFX UK Significantly Narrows Loss in FY20 despite Dip in Revenue

    Abstract:The revenues were reduced as the broker stopped offering retail services.

      GKFX Financial Services Limited, the UK unit of the Global Kapital Group, filed its financials for the fiscal year 2020, ending on December 31, with Companies House reporting a much narrower pre-tax loss at £2.88 million. In the previous year, this figure came in at a loss of £8.68 million.

      The latest results are the first full-year financials released by the UK subsidiary, which operates the GKPro brand, after it migrated all its retail clients to its sister companies and shifted total focus on professional and wholesale clients.

      In addition, the lack of retail traders hit the revenue of the brokerage hard, which slipped from £3.6 million to £2.66 million.

      “Revenues are generated predominantly through a volume rebate with a counterparty that is related to GKFX Financial Services by common ownership. The risk management strategy is based on highly automated flow management which dynamically hedges client exposure and risk,” the filing explained.

      

      Massive Cuts in Expenses

      Despite the decline in yearly revenue, the loss was narrowed by significantly cutting the cost of sales in half and reducing the administrative expenses, which declined from £11.8 million to £5.78 million in a year.

      “Revenues reduced as the retail business was curtailed and expenses decreased primarily as lower staffing levels were required to support the much smaller ongoing client base,” the broker noted.

      While the brokerage group closed its retail operations in the United Kingdom, it is aggressively expanding its reach in other geographical regions. Earlier this year, the group secured an operational license from the regulator in Mauritius for the expansion of its global services. Furthermore, it acquired a FINRA-registered broker-dealer, paving its way into the US market.
