Impax Asset Management Group plc - Q3 2017 AUM update

 

London, 10 July 2017 - Impax Asset Management Group plc ("Impax" or the "Company"), the AIM quoted investment manager, today provides an update of the development of its assets under discretionary and advisory management ("AUM") in the third quarter of its financial year.

 

On 30 June 2017, AUM totalled £6.7 billion, representing an increase of 17% over the quarter and a 48% increase since the start of the Company's financial year on 1 October 2016.

                                                                                                                  

Ian Simm, Chief Executive, commented:

"I am pleased to report Impax's tenth consecutive quarter of net inflows and another new record AUM for the company.  We continue to see strong flows from Continental European investors into all our major strategies and significant allocations from North America."

 

"Investor interest in the markets in which Impax invests looks set to continue its upward trajectory over the longer-term. Even President's Trump's announcement to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement has done little to dent investor enthusiasm for investments in companies that provide solutions to environmental challenges. Furthermore, the recommendations outlined in last month's Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures should help investors identify not only the climate-related risks in their portfolios, but also the opportunities for strong growth in sectors that are well-positioned to benefit in a lower carbon economy." 

 

The table below sets out further details of the movements in the Company's AUM for the quarter ended 30 June 2017.

Notes to Editors - About Impax Asset Management

 

Impax Asset Management manages or advises on approximately £6.7 bn1 in both listed and private equity strategies primarily for institutional clients.

 

The Company's investments are based on the strong conviction that population dynamics, resource scarcity, inadequate infrastructure and environmental constraints will profoundly shape global markets, creating investment risks and opportunities.  Impax expects that these trends, reflecting the transition towards a more sustainable global economy, will drive earnings growth for well-positioned companies.  Impax's proprietary investment framework identifies and calibrates the rising risks and expanding opportunities from this transition, and guides the search for investments that will deliver long term outperformance.
