Combining this talent with our strong brand and balance sheet gives us every chance of being the leading Investment Bank in the UK Small and Mid-cap market. As I take on a new role within the business, my ambition for Singer Capital Markets remains undimmed, and I look forward to continuing to work with Steve and the rest of the firm as I focus my efforts on new areas for the business.
