PATERSONS Securities executive chairman Michael Manford has declared the stockbroking firm is not up for sale, following market speculation about a potential deal with the Asia-Pacific arm of French banking giant Credit Agricole. But Mr Manford refused to comment on whether the stockbroker was in any kind of discussions with Credit Agricole. He said there was constant speculation about Perth broking firms being bought and sold. “What I can tell you is that Patersons is not up for sale.” “No part to if it is for sale. We have enjoyed strong growth in the past few years and we are continuing to grow the business.” Mr Manford said “there is always the potential to work with others” to help drive Patersons’s growth plans.
