By BFN News | 09:46 AM | Thursday 04 June, 2020


Investment manager Impax Asset Management reported a rise in first-half assets under management amid record half-yearly inflows, but profit fell on higher operating costs. For the six months to 31 March 2020, assets under management rose 9% to £14.4bn as net inflows swelled to a record £1.8bn on the first-half, compared with £887m on-year. But pre-tax profit fell to £8m from £9.3m even as revenue increased to £41.2m from £33.8m. The company declared an interim dividend of 1.8p a share, up from 1.5p a share on-year. 'Current market levels appear to be pricing in a global recession for at least the next year. In the short-term it is inevitable that we will see widespread dividend cuts and cash calls from many companies,' the company said.
