“I am pleased that once again we have extended our market share in UK and continue to be the market leader by some margin. This research is supported by our ongoing revenue growth in the UK; which increased in the H1 2016 by 3.4% to £110 million. Traders are seeking out well-regulated and financially stable providers.
