TigerWit Reports Record Revenue of $27.5m in Q1 2020 (YoY)

TigerWit has achieved record revenues of US$27.5m for their financial
year ended 31st March 2020, up 24% from 2018/19, according to an
official statement. The trading platform has also increased its global
network of partnerships and expanded its presence in emerging markets

Although retail brokers have been facing many challenges in recent
times, particularly the more stringent regulatory environment that has
changed significantly over the past 18 months across more mature
jurisdictions, TigerWit has been able to secure solid business growth.
The retail broker has accomplished a number of strategic achievements,
including new product launches, such as the addition of
cryptocurrencies and continued enhancements of the mobile trading app.

Other noticeable developments include the launch of the TigerWit
employment program in conjunction with Liverpool FC and receiving
their Type 3 license from the Securities and Futures Commission in
Hong Kong. The firm plans to push further in its mission towards
improving financial inclusion across several developing economies, in
addition to increasing market share within developed markets.

Tim Hughes, CEO at TigerWit, commented:

“The last financial year has been both successful and transformational
for the Group as we progressed our strategy of broadening our global
footprint and further developing our technology. These investments
position us to offer an innovative suite of trading and fintech
products to retail investors around the world. This strategy is
becoming a reality with our multi-jurisdiction regulation,
establishment of regional partnerships, and product innovation.

“Despite the uncertainty of what the global coronavirus pandemic
presents, we have ensured we do our utmost to protect our employees by
providing them with everything they need to be able to work safely
from home. This financial year has commenced strongly in the face of
today’s uncertain economic climate and we continue to grow, looking
forward to the months and years ahead with great optimism.”
