Liontrust reports promising start to year

UK-based Liontrust Asset Management has issued its trading update for the first three months of 2019, with assets under management (AuM) at £12.7 billion (€14.8 billion) at the close of business on 31 March.

This marks an increase of 13% from 31 December 2018, when AuM were at £11.2 billion, as well as 21% throughout their financial year up to 31 March.

Net inflows from 1 January till the end of last month were £581 million, a sharp increase from the same period last year where inflows stood at £255 million.

Inflows throughout the financial year to 31 March were £1.8 billion. “It’s been a successful year for Liontrust,” said the asset manager’s chief executive John Ions (pictured).

“This success comes at a challenging time, with negative retail fund flows across the UK industry as a whole in six of the last seven months up to and including February 2019,” he said.
