Although he will step down formally from the board next year, he will continue to look after Thomas Miller’s European interests. Charles Fenton will assume the role of Chairman from that date, while remaining CEO of the TT Club.

The Group reported “an exceptional year”, which was significantly boosted by the sale of its private wealth business.

It said that its Corporate Plan objectives remained unchanged as it sought to increase the size of its business via a Mergers & Acquisition strategy.
