The main contributor to this growth in the profits comes from LOLC’s core business, financial services, where all three regulated companies recorded excellent performance for the first six months of 2014. The trading sector too contributed to strong profitability while the other sectors and equity accounted investments yielded higher returns, further strengthening Group performance.
