 We are proud of these results, which reflect a strong organic performance as we continue to drive forward our growth initiatives, diversifying our business by adding products to our service segments and expanding geographically. These more than offset a headwind from very low interest rates.

Although the current macroeconomic environment is volatile, we have successfully navigated the recent geopolitical disruption in the commodities markets, carefully managing risk and maintaining a strong capital and liquidity position throughout. We continue to steer our clients through a very challenging period, whilst complying fully with government sanctions.

We have seen a very strong start to 2022. Looking ahead, I am confident that we will continue to deliver strong growth, both organically and through strategic bolt-on acquisitions, as we continue to build on our strategic growth plans. Furthermore, inflation in the real economy will likely translate into rising short-term interest rates, which is also positive for our business.
