2020 Full year financial results
A message from Will Self, Chief Executive Officer of Curtis Banks Group.
7 April 2021
Curtis Banks Group PLC is pleased to announce its final results for the 12 months to 31 December 2020. These results represent the full 12 month period including the fundraising and refinancing activities in July 2020; 5 months contribution from Dunstan Thomas and 2 months contribution from Talbot and Muir.
Will Self, Chief Executive Officer, Curtis Banks Group:
“Curtis Banks made strong progress in 2020. The business effectively weathered the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and made good progress on a number of strategic initiatives to provide us with a platform for future, long-term, sustainable growth. Operating revenue grew by 10% to £53.9m, reflecting acquisitive growth and steady performance in our core business of Mid and Full SIPPs, while Assets under Administration increased by 11% to £32.4bn.”
“The business demonstrated a high degree of resilience in 2020. We completed the acquisitions of Talbot and Muir and Dunstan Thomas, two high-quality businesses which provide us with additional scale in our core line of business and the opportunity for technological innovation further down the line, respectively. We changed our fee model to ensure greater transparency to our clients and a more robust, consistent income stream which reduces our reliance on interest income. Our system strategy also continued to be delivered at pace, with the upgrades to our administration platform commencing last year.”
“Looking ahead, we have a clear vision for long-term growth. Curtis Banks is evolving from a primarily focused SIPP administrator to a more holistic retirement group which provides technology and complementary services to the advised retirement market. We are confident that our efforts to diversify our core offering and revenue streams can reach new areas of an ever-increasing addressable market to provide the foundations for growth in 2021 and beyond.”
