Impax Asset Management Group plc - Q4 and full year AUM update

 

London, 10 October 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 an update of the development of its assets under discretionary and advisory management ("AUM") in the final quarter of its financial year ending 30 September 2016, as well as an overview for the full financial year.

 

On 30 September 2016 AUM reached a new peak of ca. £4.5 billion, representing increases of 12% over the quarter and 59% since the start of Impax's financial year on 1 October 2015.

                                                                                                                  

Ian Simm, Chief Executive, commented:

 

"At a time of increasing concern about the rate of future economic growth, investor interest in opportunities arising from the transition to a sustainable global economy continues to build.  Impax is regarded world-wide as one of the leading investment managers with deep expertise in this area, and our global distribution network has again provided the foundation for a significant expansion of our AUM and the further development of a strong mandate pipeline to underpin future growth.

 

With an investment process that has been developed since the late 1990s, all our listed equity strategies have outperformed their global and environmental benchmarks for the full year."
