Paperless, swift and easy onboarding…
Following the issuance of the FINMA circular 2016/7 on Video-identification dated March 2016, Dukascopy Bank was eager to be among the first financial institutions to use an in-house developed video-based on-boarding system, fully integrated to its IT infrastructure.
Dukascopy Bank is delighted to announce that, from now on, opening an account and starting to trade at Dukascopy Bank can be done within 1 hour.
This is a tremendous breakthrough and improvement in client experience. Dukascopy Bank was often criticized on Internet forums because of its long and bureaucratic account opening process requiring 10 days in average and up to 1 month.
What makes the opening so much faster?
Maximum net exposure limits for CFDs and precious metals are being adjusted. Please click here to see full details. At the same time default leverage for BRENT.CMD/IDX and LIGHT.CMD/IDX will be raised from 1:30 to 1:100. These changes will take effect as of 09-Sep-2016 at 14:00 GMT.
Improvements to Dukascopy Group risk management is ongoing. As with changes implemented during the EUR/CHF floor cancellation, Brexit or the Turkey coup attempt, the measures are taken to guarantee the stability of the group and protect its clients. In light of the current market volatility, risks of geopolitical catastrophes and aggressive central bank decisions, steps taken by Dukascopy Group will enhance brokerage business while significantly improve trading conditions for small and medium size traders.
Dukascopy Bank has reached a new record in total income at CHF 17.2 million, 1.6% above the first semester 2015 which already was a record semester.
Due to higher operating expenses (+15.2%) reflecting IT developments and new marketing initiatives, the half year net profit is 25.8% below the same period 2015 but still is very satisfactory at CHF 2.5 million.
At Group level, consolidated total income is 2.4% above the first semester 2015 at CHF 18.1 million. However, the initial losses of our new subsidiary Dukascopy Japan, which is in launching phase, negatively affected the half-year consolidated net profit which amounts to CHF 1.9 million. Dukascopy Japan is showing promising growth and is expected to break-even in 2017.
Those figures reflect a very solid performance and continued stability in Dukascopy Bank and Dukascop Group financial situation.
We thank our clients, employees and counterparties for their trust and loyalty.
Complete individual and consolidated balance sheets and statements of income are available here.
