Our revenues rose by 22% over the last financial year, adjusted profit before tax increased by 21% and assets under management climbed to £4.8 billion. These achievements have enabled us to declare a second interim dividend per share of 9.0 pence.
"We broadened further our fund management capability during the financial year through the new Global Equity team and doubling the size of the Economic Advantage team. We have also agreed to acquire the European Income Business of Argonaut Capital Partners LLP, which would take our AuM above £5 billion and extend our equity income proposition even further."
