Impax Asset Management Group plc - Q2 AUM update

 

London, 8 April 2016 - Impax Asset Management Group plc ("Impax" or the "Company"), the AIM quoted investment manager focused on environmental markets and related resource efficiency sectors, today provides a quarterly update of its assets under discretionary and advisory management ("AUM").

 

On 31 March 2016 AUM was ca. £3.56 billion, which was 16% higher than AUM at the start of the quarter on 1 January 2016 and 26% more than AUM at the start of Impax's current financial year on 1 October 2015.

 

During the most recent quarter, the Company received net inflows of £272 million, 65% of which was attributable to a new segregated account mandate, commencing at the end of March, from an institutional investor based in the United States. 

 

Ian Simm, Chief Executive, commented:

"Despite considerable market volatility early in 2016, Impax has had a strong quarter with positive net inflows and creditable investment performance.  Investor interest in our capabilities and investment products remains high and we have a healthy pipeline of potential new inflows."
