ICAP delivered a solid performance in 2011/12 against a difficult economic environment. The fact that we maintained profitability in a year when trading volumes were under such pressure is testament to the effectiveness of our diversified business, our global presence, our people and the actions we took to manage our cost base as market conditions changed.
