Interactive Brokers reported its financials for the second quarter of 2022, posting net revenue of $656 million, with adjusted figures of $717 million. There was a 13% year-on-year decline in net income, while the adjusted amount rose 10.3%.

In fact, thanks to a push from higher customer options and lower volume futures trading volume, commission revenue jumped 5% to $322 million. In addition, the broker's net interest income rose 27% to $348 million. Unfortunately, revenue from other sources dipped from $175 million to a loss of $57 million.
