"Aggregate funds under management, including those held by the Group, currently stand at £711 million, compared to £626 million at the financial year end on 31 March 2018. Of this, £537 million is managed on behalf of third-party clients, an increase of 18% over the same period. Over the last three years aggregate funds under management have more than doubled, driven by the growth in funds managed on behalf of third-party clients.

The Group's focus is on higher yielding commercial property with sustainable cash flows. The company is flexible and takes an active approach to asset management. Its earnings are derived from:

Investments include ten directly held properties in Poland and Romania (including five held by Fprop Opportunities plc [FOP], in which the Group is currently the majority shareholder), and interests in nine other funds managed by FPAM.
