Conditions are set to remain mixed for underwriter Brit Insurance after a three months that saw UK premiums rise strongly but elsewhere remain under pressure.

Laundry and workwear firm Davis Service Group said trading has continued broadly in line with the trends seen in the first half of the year, with revenue modestly ahead of the nine months period in 2008 and profits maintained at a similar level.

Financial trading software specialist Fidessa said it continues to make good progress across all regions and believes that it can deliver strong growth for 2009 as a whole.
