“I am pleased to report a quarter of solid net inflows for the Transact platform, with gross inflows of £1.5bn and net inflows of over £0.6bn,” said group chief executive officer Alex Scott.
“This is pleasing considering the tough macro-economic environment and reflects the strength of our market position and the attractions of our platform.
Outflows remained broadly in line with previous quarters, highlighting the resilience of our business model.”
