One of the major global forex brokerages IG Group (LON:IGG) issued a trading update ahead of entering its close period for the financial year ending on May 31, saying it expects a higher full year revenue.
To be more precise, the company expects to report around 7% higher revenue than the prior year and full year profit before tax to be modestly ahead.
The operating expenses in the second half of the year are expected to be more or less the same as those of the first half, including a rebate from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme relating to prior years.
The official results for the fourth quarter and the financial year that end on May 31, will be released in mid-July.
