The challenging market environment and the ongoing market structure changes in the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives markets associated with increased regulatory scrutiny have been cited as the main reasons for the decline in revenues at the company.
The firm's adjusted revenue from inter-dealer broking business (IDB) was reported down 7.8% in constant currencies, while the firm's Japanese retail Forex business, Meitan Tradition, has shed 37.2%, as the one-off increase in volumes following the unprecedented monetary easing by the Bank of Japan in April last year. The resulting overall Asian business decline can be clearly seen on the table below, which has the revenue streams of the company broken down by regions. [caption id="attachment_52988" align="alignleft" width="640"]tradition_by_region Revenues by Region, Business, Year-on-year comparison[/caption] The company's Swap Execution Facility (SEF) was approved by the CFTC back in September 2013, and it onboarded Lloyds Bank to join its Trad-X Multilateral Trading Facility in the beginning of 2014 as Founder. The platform is used to trade interest rates swaps, bringing record trading volumes for both May and June.
For the second quarter, the company's consolidated revenue has totalled CHF 203.8m, which is lower by 12.8% in constant currencies from Q2 2013. Inter-dealer broking business (IDB) was down 13.0%, while non-IDB shed 48.6%.
