Mike O'Shea, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

 

"We are pleased to report another strong quarter for the business. Net inflows of £202 million represented our twenty-first successive quarter of positive net inflows, AUM increased to a record high, and fund performance remains strong. These inflows, plus market movements, resulted in our AUM increasing to £6.8 billion. This is £1.0 billion higher than the level 12 months ago. These results show that Premier is well positioned in terms of our product range, performance and distribution capability.

 

"Against a background for investment firms and our clients of economic and political uncertainty, combined with the very fast pace of technological change, we  believe our focus on relevant, actively managed investment products, including our multi-asset, equity and absolute return funds, combined with our focus on client service, means we remain well positioned for the future."
