“Our new business performance for our third quarter was very positive. It is encouraging to see an improving environment for the distribution of our products as restrictions are gradually relaxed and investment confidence returns.

We continue to invest for the future through the on-going development of our Japanese proposition and the upgrade of our systems environment. Our proposition is now operationally ready and we are working with our distribution partner to schedule a launch date when Covid restrictions in Japan are more favourable. It remains on track to deliver significant growth in our coming financial year.”
