LCG UK Narrows Losses in 2021 despite 86% Revenue Decline

<p>London Capital Group Limited, owned by Charles Henri Sabet who controlled Swiss firm <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">Flowbank</a>, ended the financial year 2021 ended on 31 December with revenue of more than £1.58 million, which is 86 percent lower than the previous year, the latest Companies House filing revealed.</p><p>LCG Narrows Losses Significantly</p><p>Operating under the trade name LCG, the company generated £1.09 million in gross profits for the year, which declined by 89 percent. However, it narrowed the pre-tax losses to £1.74 million compared to the previous year's £2.13 percent, which is an improvement of 18 percent.</p><p>Following <a href="" class="terms__secondary-term" id="0d53a9a8-2500-4d0e-a2bd-41c7ceaf31d1" target="_blank">Brexit</a>, LCG primarily operates with its <a href="" class="terms__main-term" id="4c85a54d-15e0-4e44-a214-8c55f71cb286" target="_blank">Financial Conduct Authority (FCA</a>) license. Now, the company  focuses only on its UK client base after losing passporting rights for operations in the European Union. However, Its sister entity LCG Capital Markets Limited, Bahamas, operates globally with authorization from the offshore regulator.</p><p>A Decline in Trading Demand</p><p>The company's revenue took a dent as the trading volume for the year decreased by 58 percent to £68 billion. Moreover, the number of monthly active clients declined by 27 percent to 4,461. The client balance on the platform dropped by 9 percent to £14.7 million.</p><p>On the positive side, it managed to reduce administrative costs by 54 percent to £5.6 million.</p><p>LCG generates revenue from the dealing spread, which is the difference between the contracts' buy and sell price for differences (CFDs) and spread betting products, commission income, and exchange gains and interests.</p><p>"A significant structural change to the company, the ongoing<a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow"> impact of Brexit</a>, regulatory changes to the CFD industry, and market volatility have all impacted business performance for the twelve months ended 31 December 2021. Overall, the company has experienced a material fall in revenues, but reduced costs have resulted in a smaller operating loss for the year versus the year prior," the filing stated.</p><p>Previously, LCG was a<a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow"> part of the London Capital Group Holdings</a>, which ran into trouble after delisting from the London Stock Exchange and NEX Exchange in 2018. The same year, Charles Henri Sabet, then heading as the CEO, bought LCG, separating it from the troubled London Capital Group Holdings, which went into liquidation.</p><p>Sabet made some structural changes in the ownership of LCG after he <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">launched Switzerland-based FlowBank</a> in 2020.</p><p>"LCG's transition to a new business arrangement with its parent company (FlowBank SA) required a major adjustment to day-to-day operations, and management expects to continue to devote significant time into making it a success. The structural changes have reduced costs but resulted in an expected reduction in average monthly trading volume and revenues," the filing added.</p>
