2021 was a strategically important year for PFG as we successfully transitioned the Group to becoming a leading specialist bank focused on underserved markets. The Board and Executive Management team delivered a number of significant strategic initiatives during 2021, including closing our Consumer Credit Division, establishing a personal loans business and, shortly after the period end, making some important changes to the Group’s governance structure.
The Board and I look forward to 2022 with confidence. We will continue to establish PFG as a leading specialist bank built on a platform of credit cards, vehicle finance and personal loans, all of which is underpinned by a strong and diversified balance sheet, aligned governance and harmonised risk management. I am delighted to report that we have been able to reinstate the dividend to our shareholders for FY’21.
