LONDON, October 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Year-over-year revenues for the same period were also reported to have risen by 110 percent to £11.2 million, up from £5.3 million in H1 2015. LCG's adjusted pre tax losses came in at £3.4 million, another improvement from £8.5 million.

The company shows signs of picking up momentum following a rebranding initiative that commenced in January 2016, as well as a recent technological overhaul and the introduction of a new proprietary trading platform, LCG Trader.

LCG has also announced growth in its customer base, with average newly registered and funded accounts having increased by 15 percent to 325 per month. Engagement among the firm's existing client base is also up, with the total number of monthly active clients having risen by 2% year-over-year to 4,141.

These figures are highly encouraging, especially considering this year's somewhat muted trading landscape, which has been characterised by low volatility and market uncertainty. LCG has demonstrated an ability to register growth in less than ideal trading conditions and is now poised to consolidate these gains by pursuing a greater market share.
