JTC Plc delivers a strong performance in its first results as a listed company

Nigel Le Quesne, Chief Executive Officer of JTC PLC, said:

“We are very pleased with the performance of the Group in the first half of the year and delighted with our successful listing during the period. We continue to see positive organic growth in both our Institutional and Private Client Divisions with a healthy ongoing pipeline from new and existing clients. As well as good progress with integrating the businesses acquired in 2017 we have also made two further acquisitions, post period end, with the recent Van Doorn (Netherlands) and Minerva (Jersey, London, Geneva, Dubai, Mauritius and Singapore) businesses, which are progressing well. In addition to these, we have several other potential targets where we are engaged in negotiations. We have continued to strengthen the senior management team as part of an ongoing drive to improve performance in all our key jurisdictions and service lines and this, coupled with our ongoing investment in improving processes and technologies, makes us confident in the ability of the Group to deliver on the expectations we set ourselves at the time of listing and in meeting the Board’s expectations for the full year.”
