Impax Asset Management Group plc - Q2 AUM update


London, 10 April 2018 - 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") for the second quarter of its financial year.

 

On 31 March 2018, the Company's AUM totalled £11.0 billion.  This AUM figure includes the assets managed by Impax Asset Management LLC (previously named Pax World Management LLC), which the Company acquired on 18 January 2018.

                                                                                                                  

Ian Simm, Chief Executive, commented:

 

"Despite the return of higher equity market volatility, I'm pleased to report on another successful quarter for the firm with net inflows of £331 million.  In the first half of this financial year we have received over £1 billion of new money, and our new business pipeline remains encouraging."  

 

"Since the closing of the acquisition of Pax World Management LLC in January, we have made good progress on the integration of the back and middle offices of the two businesses and on the sharing of best ideas between the investment teams."

 

 The table below sets out further details of the movements in the Company's AUM for the quarter ended 31 March 2018.
