*Tilman Brewin Dolphin Limited

 

Excluding the acquisition of Tilman Brewin Dolphin Limited (formerly Tilman Asset Management Limited) the Dublin based fund manager, discretionary funds under management have grown by 10.9% above the APCIMS index and the growth in value of total funds under management has exceeded the APCIMS index by 3.8%.

 

Against this growth in funds under management, the Group has invested £3m in the previously announced major business review.  The results of this review are scheduled to roll out over the next three years to improve margins and provide enhanced services to our clients. Stage one of this review was to introduce a national rate card from 1st October 2011 for new clients. These new rates will be brought in for existing clients during 2012, when trail commission will be phased out, improving transparency for our clients.

 

This major initiative will help to underpin the Group's income in what could well be continuing difficult market conditions.

 

Progress has been made in relation to the disposal of the Group's Corporate Advisory and Broking Division announced on 11 May.  It is now anticipated that completion will take place at the end of 2011. Encouragingly the division has continued to trade profitably before costs relating to the disposal.
