Investment summary

In GB Group’s recent AGM trading update, management confirmed that it had seen a good start to FY22. All divisions are benefiting from the consumer shift to transacting online. Cryptocurrency trading has boosted Identity volumes in the quarter, while Location continues to see good demand and recent licence extensions point to a recovery in the Fraud business. The strong trading in Q122 provides management with confidence for the year ahead; we maintain our forecasts.

Industry outlook

Globalisation and the growth in internet trading have also resulted in the need for higher compliance standards in light of the rising scope and financial impact of cybercrime. This, in turn, is driving the demand for more complex and comprehensive solutions for the verification of personal data.
