A family passion for cars
The Arnold Clark Group remains a family run business. By focussing our efforts on customer retention, and by re-investing 100% of net earnings, the Board of Directors aims to sustain a long-term return and to keep the Group free of secured debt. The shareholding of the Group is held entirely by Sir Arnold Clark and his family, with 35% of the share capital being held in a family trust. This share structure is designed to ensure the Group remains a private limited company.
