November 27, 2020 – The London-headquartered FCA regulated Prime of Prime IS Prime has reported strong growth numbers for the 6th consecutive year, with a 30% increase in turnover y/e 31 March 2020. Reported figures show a rise from £27.6m y/e 2019 to £36m y/e 2020. In 2019 the firm reported a 60% increase in turnover from 17.2m y/e 2018 to £27.6m y/e 2019.

Perhaps more impressive is the reported operating profit, which almost tripled from £5.9m to £17.6m, which the company says is largely attributed to client growth combined with increased efficiencies from its highly scalable proprietary systems.

In 2019 the company reported that Net assets increased from £7.7m to £10.7m - this year Net assets for y/e 20 have remained steady at £10.7m.
