Earlier in June, CMC Markets posted its financial results for the full year to March 31, 2021, with income beating forecasts.

Net operating income increased to £409.8 million, up £157.8 million (63%) from the result recorded in the preceding year. As guided earlier, the result was ahead of forecasts. CFD revenue per active client rose 22% to £4,560, driven by improved CFD client income retention, whereas the number of CFD active clients increased by 19,389 (34%) partially driven by increased levels of interest in the financial markets from a new wave of clients.

Stockbroking net trading revenue jumped 72% to £54.8 million supported by higher client numbers (up 28%) and the increasing appeal of the international shares offering.
