- Alpha FX Group said it expected full-year earnings ahead of expectations as first-half revenues looked set to surge amid growth in the core UK corporate market, as well as an acceleration in European revenue.

The company said it expected revenues in the first half of the year would surge by 60%, offsetting a rise in costs. As a result of the performance at this stage of the year, the 'Board expects full year earnings to be ahead of expectations,' Alpha FX said.

The increase in costs comes as the company is set to move its headquarters to a new office in London at the end of August.

'This is another strong period of trading and we remain excited about the prospects of continuing to deliver our strategy throughout the remainder of the year,' the company said.
