LOM, the international financial services company, has reported full-year 2022 profits of $1,883,951, or $0.37 per share.

This decrease from the more than $9.5 million profit declared in 2021 is because of the extraordinary $7.1 million gain on securities in the 2021 financial year not being repeated, the company said in a statement.

In a filing with the Bermuda Stock Exchange, a company statement from chairman and chief executive Scott Lines also noted a significant drop in total revenues and assets under administration.

The statement said: “Outside of the extraordinary gain and losses in both years, our underlying operating profits between 2021 and 2022 rose 7 per cent year on year from $2,326,110 to $2,482,615. Given the significant weakness in the global stock and bond markets during 2022, we are pleased with the result.”

• Management and advisory fee revenues were flat at $7.114 million (39 per cent of revenues)
