Admiral Markets Closes 2018 on Strong Footing

As Finance Magnates reported, during 2018 Admiral Markets disclosed a net operating revenue of $27.5 million, which was up 25 per cent year-over-year from $21.9 million in 2017.

Furthermore, in 2018 the company reported a net profit of $10.8 million, which reflects a 58 per cent advance when compared with the $6.8 million it earned in the year prior.

The company attributed its solid revenues to higher trading volumes, the introduction of new products, and improved marketing efforts.
