- WH Ireland has booked an H1 pretax profit of £203,000, from a profit of £59,000 a year earlier. Revenue was £14.7m, from £13.1m.

Richard Killingbeck, Chief Executive Officer, said:

"WH Ireland performed strongly during the first half of the year, with good growth in adjusted pre-tax profits and revenues, continuing the progress made in the last financial year.

"Much progress has been made in the development of WH Ireland into a focussed business around two key disciplines, Corporate Broking and Private Client Wealth Management. Both businesses are in a considerably stronger position than twelve months ago in terms of their financial performance, proposition and teams.

"We anticipate making further progress in the second half and into 2015."
