Commenting on the results, Chief Executive, Tony Dalwood  said:


“Throughout 2021 we made exceptional progress on the delivery of our GH25 five-year strategy and are reporting outstanding growth in AUM, profitability and revenue. We are focused on private assets which exhibit long-term superior investment returns alongside sustainability characteristics.

“We have demonstrated our ability to grow organically and to add value through acquisitions, providing an exciting future for our Group. Gresham House Ireland and the Mobeus VCT businesses enhance the strategic ambitions and potential for the Group.

“Momentum across the business continues to be buoyed by the structural shift driving fund inflows into alternative asset classes as we continue to diversify our client base. Our ESG-focused strategy and strong investment performance mean we are well placed to capture the rising demand for investments that deliver both financial returns and sustainable, climate-based solutions.

“In light of our excellent 2021 performance, we are well on track to achieve our GH25 objectives and have therefore upgraded our targets in accordance with our ambition and strategic goals. Despite the current macroeconomic environment and geo-political events, we are confident of further growth throughout 2022 as we continue to deliver value to all our stakeholders.”
