Three things you need to know in the financial markets today from investment writer, Tony Cross.

#1. WanDisco CEO & CFO stand down

WanDisco LON:WAND has issued a statement this morning.

Sales are up 36% and although gross profits slipped by around 10%, cash at hand remains strong. The company is developing a B2B2C distribution network in preparation of launching an expanded range of at-home wellness tests later in the year, a significant move as it needs to look beyond the pandemic.
