IG Group Looks To Reduce Headcount By 10% Worldwide
October 31, 2023 - IG Group has announced today that it is looking to make a 10% reduction in headcount worldwide as it takes steps to “streamline” its business and make cost savings of $50 million per year.
The company says that these steps are big taken to better position the business for further growth, the result of a review of cost-efficiency opportunities.

Alongside other efficiency measures, including expanding the use of its global centres of excellence, the Group expects to deliver full run rate cost savings of £50 million per year. These initiatives are expected to drive operating margin expansion over the medium term.
Non-recurring costs to achieve the savings are expected to be approximately £18 million split across FY24 and FY25.

We will continuously evaluate and pursue cost efficiency opportunities to create a more agile and scalable organisation. Full support will be provided to our people throughout this process, and while these decisions are not easy to take, they will ensure the business is well positioned for continued long-term success."
IG Group will announce H1 FY24 results on 25 January 2024.
