A message from the Chair
The past year has been a transformative one for Link Group. There have been many positive strategic and operational initiatives undertaken and completed during the year. These include the acquisition of a larger stake in PEXA, the separation of Link Asset Services (LAS, our UK and European business) from Capita plc and subsequent, progressive integration of Link Group’s shared services functions and the divestment of the Corporate & Private Clients Services (CPCS) business. However, the organisation has also faced several headwinds that have impacted our financial performance.
