FairFX acquired CardOne in January for £15mln to use its infrastructure and technical capability to speed up its own roll-out of a small business banking product.
International payments and travel currency provider City Forex, acquired for £6mln, followed in February and was expected to be immediately earnings enhancing as the firm completed the migration of its international payments business to the platform ten weeks after the acquisition.
In the statement, Pearson said the company was “already reaping the benefits” of the City Forex acquisition, which he added was improving efficiencies in the group’s services.
In light of its recent performance in the year, Pearson said that the company expected trading performance for the full year to be “in-line with market expectations”.
