Chris Macdonald (pictured), chief executive of Brooks Macdonald, says: “The last year has been very active, with the successful acquisition and integration of Spearpoint, strong organic growth, the launch of new funds and significant investment across the business.
“We anticipate making further progress in maintaining this organic growth of funds under management in the new financial year and the board remains confident for the future prospects of the group.”
