Jupiter and BlackRock asset managers have posted increased sales and assets under management.
Publishing results for July to September, Jupiter said net inflows to funds were £734million with a 12 per cent increase in assets under management to £22.2billion.
Chief executive Edward Bonham Carter said: “Whilst markets rose across the quarter, fears of a double dip recession in developed world economies depressed sentiment before a rally in September.
“Against this backdrop, it was pleasing to see the Group maintain steady net inflow in our mutual funds range and make progress in our segregated mandates.”
Figures at 30 September showed almost £17billion of assets under management in mutual funds (collective investment funds) with almost £3billion in segregated funds – portfolios managed for institutional clients.
Third quarter figures for US firm BlackRock showed a $234million increase income compared to a year ago and $119million over the three months to September. Assets under management at BlackRock, which acquired Barclays Capital Investors at the end of last year, now stand at $3.446trillion, up 9 per cent during the quarter.
Company chairman and CEO Laurence D Fink said: “BlackRock’s robust third quarter results reflected the breadth of our business globally, strong performance in both index and actively managed products and increasing demand for BlackRock’s unique ability to deliver multi-asset class and risk management solutions to our clients.”
