Global Express and Allegro Funds: New Opportunities
We recently announced the sale of Global Express to Allegro Funds. An important update is that we now expect the sale to be completed on 31 August 2021, subject to regulatory and approvals and customary closing conditions.
Over the coming months we will be working hard to ensure a smooth transition as we set up Global Express as a standalone business. As ever, we remain focused on serving our customers, and we are committed to delivering the same exceptional service throughout this period.
