We note that our FY21E Adj EBITDA forecast is currently £7.1m, and hence factors in only minimal organic growth, despite the fact that positive momentum from H2/FY21A has continued into the current

Augmentum Fintech (“AF”) has seen continued positive performance during H1, with a +£26m net investment return on the portfolio whilst deploying £45m. Successes include positive returns on Interactive Investor (“ii”), Tide, Grover and Zopa – as well as the maiden disposal (Dext).
