Serial entrepreneurs Michael Holland, 64, and Craig Wilson, 63, founded Financial Express in 1996 to provide investment data, software tools and analysis to financial advisers, asset managers and institutions. Last year, it acquired Global Funds Registration and Kii Hub to help international clients meet regulatory requirements, and bought financial publication Money Management in Australia. New chief executive Neil Bradford, 45, joined in September and plans to further increase international sales, which reached £4.1m in 2017, boosted by growth in Asia.
