Petershill said aggregate partner-firm assets under management amounted to $303 billion in the third quarter ended September 30, increasing 1% quarter-on-quarter, and 7% year-on-year.
Aggregate fee-paying partner firm AuM on September 30 was $197 billion, rising 1% from the prior quarter and 4% from the previous year.
The company had inflows of $7.0 billion in the third quarter, and fee-paying inflows of $5.0 billion in the same period. Realisations were $3.0 billion and $2.0 billion, respectively.
Petershill also reiterated its 2023 guidance, expecting $20 billion to $25 billion in organic fee-eligible AuM raise and realisations of $5.0 billion and $10 billion in fee-paying AuM. Adjusted earnings before interest and tax margin is expected at 85% and 90%.
