MoneySupermarket boost

Price comparison website yesterday said its full-year outlook was in line with expectations after posting positive first-half results thanks to its money and insurance divisions.

The group said adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation fell three per cent to £18.1m, off revenues up four per cent at £71.6m. The firm, which said in July that its tough travel markets had offset revenue growth in money and insurance products, said it had also increased its investment into both building new products and advertising the brand on TV.
