Helm Godfrey profits up 13 per cent

Helm Godfrey has announced net profit growth of over 13 per cent from £660,000 in 2006 to £744,000 last year.

Turnover was up 12 per cent from £5.9m in 2006 to £6.6m in 2007.

Helm Godfrey, which was founded in 1999, says it is still on the acquisition trail for adviser firms.

Managing director Bruce Wilson says: “2007 was another tremendous year for the business with turnover and profit once again at record levels. Key to that success, as with every year since the management buy-out in 1999, has been our ability to place clients and their needs at the very heart of the business. It is this approach that will ensure the business continues to deliver in today’s uncertain economic environment.”
