SANNE, the specialist provider of outsourced corporate and fund administration, reporting and fiduciary services, has been shortlisted as ‘New Company of the Year’ at this year’s PLC Awards.  

The awards, to be announced in London on 3 March 2016, recognise success and achievement amongst publicly quoted companies in the UK. The ‘New Company of the Year’ category is open to companies that listed in 2015.  

Dean Godwin, chief executive officer of Sanne, commented: ‘We are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. 2015 has been an important year for Sanne and this recognition is testament to the hard work of our staff across all areas of the business. We are proud of the value we bring to our clients and look forward to building on this further in 2016 and beyond.’  

In April 2015 Sanne listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange. Since then the business has enjoyed good growth across its core business lines, through both increased revenue from existing clients and success in attracting new clients.  

In February 2016, Sanne entered into an agreement to acquire Dublin-based Chartered Corporate Services, a company secretarial, liquidation, payroll and VAT reporting services business, which will complement Sanne’s existing operations in Ireland and deliver additional scale and product capabilities across Sanne’s corporate and institutional service offering.  

Sanne has also recently appointed Justin Partington to the newly created role of head of funds. The appointment has enabled Sanne to continue the strategic development of its multi-jurisdictional funds capability across the company’s alternative asset classes, comprising private equity, private debt and capital markets and real estate.
