Tier 1 capital comprises of: Equity share capital Audit reserves Intangible assets The own funds of the Company is shown below: Capital Base 31 December 2014 (EUR 000) 31 December 2013 (EUR 000) Original Own Funds (Tier 1) 221 4

5 Eligible Additional Own Funds (Tier 2 Capital) 0 Eligible Additional Own Funds Specific To Cover Market Risks (Tier 3 Capital) 0 Deductions 0 Audited Income/(loss) for the year Total Tier 1 Capital 221 Total Tier 2 Capital 0 Total Eligible Own Funds Principle Business Risks The main objective of the Company s Risk Management framework is to monitor and control the following risk scenarios: 4.1 Market Risk Market Risk is the risk associated with the Company s balance sheet positions where the value of each cash flow depends on the movements in market prices. Markets price movements are related to the price fluctuation on foreign exchange rates, on the interest rates, on the equity, on the index and on the commodity prices. The Company considers its market risk to be significantly low, since under the model of operation all market risk is transferred to its counterparty provider(s). It will however, be regularly monitor the market price fluctuations and the market risk, and if deemed necessary, corrective actions will be taken to minimize this effect. The Company monitors the market risk that arises on client positions against internally approved limits and hedges client positions on internally agreed strategies to manage the Company s net exposure. Due to the nature of the business the Company is exposed to currency risk. On a weekly basis, assets and liabilities across currencies are matched to ensure that there are sufficient assets to cover liabilities in those particular currencies as and when they fall due. Market Risk Mitigation: The Risk Manager is responsible for the monitoring of the Company s risk exposure and any deviation have to be reported to the Risk Management Committee The Risk Management Committee is an independent unit reporting directly to the Board of Directors The trading activity is recorded so as to allow the Risk Committee to review and monitor the Company s exposure in real time Trades with Clients from multiple locations and in this way achieves a natural diversification of its risk benefiting from a significant degree of natural hedging between the Clients 5

6 Market Risk calculation The Company uses the Standardised Approach to calculate the capital requirements of market risk. 4.2 Operational Risk This is the risk of loss arising from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events. Business continuity, fraud (internal and external), dealing errors, administrative errors, Information Technology failure and regulatory action have been identified as the key elements of operational risk to which the Company is exposed. Not all of these risks can be effectively eliminated; however the Board believes that these risks are adequately controlled by key personnel and a rigorous control framework. Operational Risk Mitigation: Maintaining a four eye structure and implementing board oversight. The Compliance Officer must ensure the accuracy of any statements made during the marketing and advertising processes and ensure that the information addressed to the Client is fair, clear and not misleading. The Compliance Officer insures that proper and necessary information/reports are sent to CySEC on time. Management formally communicates duties and responsibilities to employees through regular meetings, seminars and trainings. Internal audit visits are implemented to ensure that employees comply with the Company s internal procedures. Several policies and procedures have been established and followed in an attempt to identify and minimize any fraudulent activities. An online web-based screening program called World-Check is used in an attempt to improve know your clients procedures Instant online reporting is available to Clients to minimize the risk of mismarking the Clients positions. The Company obtains legal advice from its legal advisors for all its official documents and before it enters into new markets. The Company has adopted the basic indicator approach to Operational Risk. 4.3 Credit Risk The risk of the Company s customers and counterparties fail to pay monies due to the Company. The Company has its main exposure to credit risk in respect of its clients. The Company exercises all deals for its clients through an automated system which is programmed to close client positions out automatically when the client's initial deposit is eroded to 20% of the relevant margin requirement. In an unlikely event that the position is closed out outside these parameters, perhaps due to a leap in the market prices, and a debit is owed on the account that the client cannot or is unwilling to pay, the Company will suffer a loss. Management regards such event as extremely unlikely and expects profits generated from such volatility of the market at least to compensate for the small bad debt loss. In any event the Company is entitled to pursue the client for the loss, but due to the global nature of the client base this option has no guarantee of success. The Company also has credit exposure from other banks and prime brokers where deposits and other balances are held. We only uses top tier banks to hold funds. Holdings with the institutions are periodically reviewed to ensure that the internally set concentration levels are not exceeded. Credit risk capital requirement is based on 8% of its risk-weighted assets. 6

7 The Company has implemented policies that require appropriate checks on potential customers before trading. The Company uses the Standardised Approach for the calculation the capital requirements for credit risk. 4.4 Liquidity Risk Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulties in meeting obligations of financial liabilities as and when they arise. It is management s policy to ensure that the Company will always have sufficient liquidity to meet its financial obligations as and when they fall due. The liquidity position is monitored on a daily basis, with management information provided to the Company Management on a weekly basis. Liquidity Risk Mitigation The Company prepares monthly budgets to ensure that it meets its obligations on time The Company ensures that it has sufficient cash on demand to meet expected operational expenses The Finance department monitors rolling forecasts of the Company s liquidity requirements based on expected cash flows in order to have sufficient cash to meet its operational needs 5. Capital Adequacy The Company s capital management objectives are: To ensure the Company s ability to continue as a going concern, and To meet regulatory capital requirements at all times. These objectives are primarily met by managing the market risks that the Company faces on a regular basis. The Company is regulated by Cyprus Security and Exchange Commission (CySEC), and is required to adhere to a minimum capital requirement. Capital is represented by issued share capital and reserves. The capital requirements are derived from credit risk, operational risk, market risk and counterparty risk. 5.1 Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process The Company performs an internal capital adequacy assessment annually or more often if required. The internal document covers all of the risks to which the Company is exposed and is approved by the Board. The Company recognises the importance of maintaining a strong capital base to support future development. Capital Adequacy Ratio as at 31 December 2013 (EUR 000) as at 31 Dec (EUR 000) as at 31 Dec Original Own Funds (Tier 1) 201 Total Eligible Own Funds 201 7

Capital Management The company believes its capital to be represented by issued share capital and loans to the extent of their contractual amounts as reflected in the financial statements. The Company has a pro-active approach to managing its capital with the Directors monitoring financial resources on regular basis. 7. Remuneration 1. The Company applies a remuneration policy to all of its employees.

Performance-based remuneration is awarded in a manner that promotes sound risk management and does not include excessive risk-taking. Performance-based remuneration is finalised and approved by the CEO in consultation with the General Manager and the Head of the equivalent employee s department. 8

9 A number of parameters, such as the speed of conducting the assigned tasks, the quality of the end results, the achievement of the set goals, the quality of customer service, the speed of order execution (where applicable) and the overall commitment to the Company and its values, are also included in the consideration for the performance-based remuneration. Performance-based pay is granted to employees with particular influence on Company results and shareholder value. In functions targeting capital markets, performance-based pay is a significant proportion of the total remuneration package for selected employees, to attract and retain the most talented people in these fields. Performance-based remuneration is granted to reflect the individual employee s performance and departmental as well as Company results. A discretionary assessment is always made to ensure that other factors - factors which are not directly measurable - are considered. 3.
