Michael Field, CFA Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Michael Field, CFA |

Narrow-moat Pearson proffered up a decent first-quarter update, with organic revenue growth of 7% over the period. It seems the positive momentum achieved in full-year 2021 has spilled over into 2022, with management reaffirming guidance for the full year.
