Trust Co justifies hype

Fending off potential suitors all year hasn't distracted The Trust Co management from delivering a strong first half result.

Perpetual (PPT) won the battle with a $247 million offer for the group, outbidding Equity Trustees and IOOF (IFL), although shareholders of both companies have yet to ratify the deal that will make Perpetual the dominant market force.
