UP Fintech Holding Limited (TIGR) shares are trading lower after the company reported its fourth-quarter FY23 results. While total revenues increased by 9.6% year-over-year to $70.0 million, total net revenues decreased by 4.7% to $54.0 million. This decline was primarily attributed to a decrease in commissions due to lower trading volume, offset by an increase in financing service fees and interest income.

In the fourth quarter, UP Fintech added 39,034 new funded accounts, marking a 42.8% increase year-over-year and surpassing the guidance of 100,000. The total account balance also rose significantly by 118.5% year-over-year to $30.6 billion, with a total of 904,600 customers holding deposits. Additionally, the company saw an uptick in total margin financing and securities lending balance, which increased by 17.9% year-over-year to $2.4 billion.
