Alistair Elliott, senior partner and group chairman commented: “I am pleased to report another very strong set of results for the group. Our turnover increased by 10% in the face of volatile markets and political conditions around the world and we improved our margins with profit up 14%.

We think that this is particularly important in the current environment. Read more
