Levels were broken down as £767m in net mutual fund flows and net segregated mandate inflows of £31m, with positive investment returns and a weak sterling also contributing to the rise in AUM.
Absolute return, fixed income and global emerging markets strategies gathered the majority of the assets during the period, according to this morning’s stock exchange announcement, while the Income Trust, which sits within Jupiter’s UK value franchise, also returned to net flows.
The group said while the current “challenging” and “changeable” markets, and regulatory uncertainty looked set to continue, it remained in a good position to continue to deliver shareholder returns.
“We believe that the resilience in our business arising from continued diversification, supported by a strong and sustainable balance sheet, leaves us well-placed to progress and to continue to share the rewards of growth with our stakeholders.”
It added that it intended to grow its key global distribution relationships and was confident its range would continue to deliver long-term outperformance, net of fees.
Maarten Slendebroek, chief executive, said: “We are pleased to report that our mutual fund franchise delivered a strong quarter with net inflows of £0.8 billion, including positive flows from our segregated mandate channel.
“This has been achieved against a backdrop of market uncertainty following the UK referendum. Alongside these flows, we continue to see strong investment performance across our product range.”
