Dukascopy Bank published strong half-year financial results 2016

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.

Reduction of leverage on GBP instruments amidst Brexit-related volatility expectations.

Due to the probability of high volatility, periods of low liquidity and risk of significant price gaps that might appear on GBP trading instruments following the Referendum on EU membership held in the United Kingdom on 23 June 2016 (also referred to as "Brexit" vote), Dukascopy plans to temporarily decrease maximum leverage on GBP currency pairs to 1:30 and to 1:10 on GBR.IDX index CFD as of Wednesday, 22 June 2016 18:00 GMT.
