The British-based specialist manager reported a pre-tax profit of £217m for the year to June, compared with a forecast for £196m.Performance fees were up 58 per cent to £82.9m, and total net revenues were up 41 per cent to £286m.Graeme Dell, group finance director, told City A.M.: “Revenue has been the driving force but we maintain a very strong operating margin which has dropped through to make for some very positive results.“Performance fees for this year have started strongly and we have revenue growth on management fees.”Dell said local currency products were attractive to emerging market institutions as a hedge against the long-term structural decline in the US dollar. Emerging market central banks have large US dollar reserves.As a result of this appetite for Ashmore’s specialist products, net inflows reached $7.6bn (£4.3bn), with assets under management at $35.3bn at the end of June.Ashmore shares have risen 12 per cent in the last three weeks. It trades at a premium to peers, but analysts at Arden said this is warranted due to its continued high margin and strong net inflows.Execution Noble analysts said: “Given its market leading position in an asset class which is seeing both long-term and short-term structural drivers along with its best in class investment performance, Ashmore deserves to trade at a premium”.Ashmore, which derives the bulk of its assets from institutions, said that it is now stepping up its targeting of the global retail market. Further marketing and distribution hires are planned to support the roll-out of its Luxembourg-domiciled retail-friendly funds across the UK and Europe. center_img Ashmore sees a 36 per cent hike in profits Show Comments ▼ Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndo whatsapp Sharelast_img read more

Sweden finished sixth in the poll, which measures wealth and prosperity, taking into account factors including health care, wealth, freedom and social capital.The UK was buoyed by strong results in the entrepreneurship (ranked fifth), governance (ranked ninth) and social capital categories. However, of the 110 countries covered by the survey, it ranks a staggering 101st on public confidence in financial institutions, 98th on optimism about job prospects and 93rd on expectations of future economic performance – the kind of ratings usually found in the world’s poorest countries.The Antipodean nations both ranked highly, with Australia in fourth place and New Zealand fifth. Zimbabwe finished bottom of the poll, with Pakistan in penultimate place after a year dominated by terrorist attacks and natural disasters.The US clung to a top ten placing despite ranking poorly in the economy and safety categories. However, the poll seems to favour small countries, with the US the only superpower to make the top 10.Former Labour business secretary Peter Mandelson defended Labour’s legacy, saying the data was collected at the onset of the financial crisis and was disproportionately gloomy.

It paid £14.14 a share for its LSE stake, while these shares ended Friday at £8.23.Last Thursday, Nasdaq OMX bought 22.8m of its shares from Borse Dubai for $497m, pricing the deal at $21.82 per share.Borse Dubai also agreed to sell a further 8m Nasdaq shares to Investor AB, the holding company for Sweden’s Wallenberg family for an undisclosed fee. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.
