"We have once again grown our AUM, by £3.4 billion during the period, the seventh year in a row we have done so.

Wholesale distribution improved strongly and we have had a successful CMA retendering process retaining 90% of relevant clients’ assets through the process and winning 12 new clients during the period.

This, combined with our strong investment performance, positions the Group very well for continued growth over the coming years."

James Barham, Group Chief Executive, November 2021
