Comments from Chris Hill, Chief Executive (7 August 2018):
"We have had another year of strong growth, in client numbers, net new business, market share and profits, driven by our continued commitment to provide excellent levels of service. Our continued investment into our people, technology and marketing helps our clients to engage with their savings and investments. This provides them with the knowledge and confidence to make decisions and our range of solutions makes it easy for them to act. We have a huge responsibility to help more than a million clients at a time when they have never needed our help more, and we are uniquely well positioned to provide them with the solutions they need.
I am pleased we have been able do all of this whilst also reinstating a special dividend to shareholders, resulting in a 38% increase in the final dividend."
