The new appointments will allow us to further strengthen our position in the market, increasing support in the sectors where we are particularly strong. We’re feeling optimistic about 2021, despite the challenges the pandemic has brought, it has improved liquidity as retail buyers have come back into the market and we’re seeing pockets of value, particularly in small and micro-cap companies. We have worked extremely hard over the last few months to ensure we provide the best service to our clients, something I am particularly proud of, and testament to the quality of our team. We are very confident these new additions will be invaluable as we grow our client base over the coming months.”
