Revenue performance (in constant currency, unless in brackets, which denotes reported currency)

TP ICAP Group plc (the "Group") announces its results for the Period today. 

Total Group revenue of £606m up 2% (+9% in reported currency). Global Broking revenue up 3% (+9%). All asset classes generated low to mid-single digit growth. In Energy & Commodities (E&C), revenue increased by 3% (+10%), in line with exchange volumes. Market conditions, and liquidity, in European Gas & Power continued to improve, leading to an increase in revenue. Revenue in Oil was unchanged. There was a strong comparative   period last year for Global Broking and E&C.

Parameta Solutions revenue grew by 7% (+15%). The division continues to target double-digit constant currency growth in Adjusted EBIT. Liquidnet division revenue was down 3% (+3%). There was a strong performance from the relative value business, while cash equities revenue declined in line with block market volumes. 

We remain well positioned and expect interest rates to remain at elevated levels throughout the year; at the same time, the benefit of the recent strong US Dollar is now moderating.

Strategic update

  • Good momentum on connecting major US banks – a key strategic deliverable - to Liquidnet’s Dealer toClient Credit platform, which offers clients a range of services: Request-For-Quote (RFQ), Rebalance, and  e-Repo. One large US bank is now directly connected to our API on the RFQ protocol. A second large US bank is in the final stages of certification;
  • Parameta Solutions approved as an ESMA-authorised benchmark administrator: the first data provider to administer OTC benchmarks and indices across Europe/UK;
  • The Group successfully completed a new £250m bond issuance on 5 April to refinance the existing January 2024 bond. The new issue was more than 5x over-subscribed.
