EDINBURGH, Scotland, 10 May 2017 – Core-Asset Consulting, a leading financial, accounting & legal recruitment company, has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

Commenting on the recognition, Betsy Williamson, Managing Director of Core-Asset Consulting, said:
“Core-Asset Consulting was created in 2005. Our ambition was to build a recruitment company that offers clients and candidates the highest levels of expertise, engagement and value. Initially we made our reputation within Scotland’s asset management sector. But the success of our model has allowed us to expand rapidly.
“We have developed into the wider financial services market, built an accounting and finance team, established an interim, temporary and contract division, launched a vetting and on-boarding service, and expanded into the legal sector.
“We’re honoured that this growth has been recognised in the London Stock Exchange Group’s prestigious report.”
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:
“Four years on, LSEG’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report continues to highlight the dynamic, entrepreneurial and ambitious businesses across the country that are boosting UK productivity, driving economic growth and creating jobs.
“The strength and diversity of these companies is readily apparent with a broad mix of UK regions and sectors represented. These companies are the very heart of an ‘anti-fragile’ economy: more robust; more flexible and less prone to boom and bust. We must ensure we continue doing all we can to support high growth potential businesses like these.
“London Stock Exchange Group is fully committed to supporting and implementing initiatives which improve access to and cut the cost of finance for growing companies. We welcome the Government’s focus on supporting SMEs as part of its Industrial Strategy and await the outcome of its review into long-term patient capital.”
The Rt Hon Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy:
“I want to congratulate the 1000 companies from across the UK featured in London Stock Exchange Group’s pioneering 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report. Championing high growth innovative SMEs is crucial for the continued success of the UK economy and a country that works for everyone. We are committed to ensuring that companies of all sizes can access finance to grow, scale-up and create high quality well-paid jobs across the country.”
