#8 We responded decisively to the major political shock of 2016.
(No 2016 review would be complete without a mention of Brexit!) The 11 days after the Referendum were our busiest to date and we continued that momentum throughout the year. We stood firmly by the message that we delivered to our portfolio companies, shareholders, partners and others:
“No one knows the outcome of the next few weeks, but now is not the time for business to start putting the brakes on. Now is the time to keep investing, keep partnering and keep innovating – and that is something we are wholeheartedly committed to doing.”
