Across IFG Group, which covers both Britain and Ireland, trading over the first four months of the year has been in line with expectations.

“New business momentum has been sustained in our core businesses with James Hay Partnership, Saunderson House and IFG Ireland continuing to win new clients and assets,” it said in a statement.

“The announced sale of IFG Financial Services in March 2014 demonstrates the group’s strategic focus. Our investment in technology, operational capability and people continues. We have made a number of senior appointments over the past 12 months and look forward to Paul McNamara joining as group chief executive on 28 July 2014.”
