We also increased our adjusted profit before tax1 by 54%.

“Over the course of the year, we saw continued inflows into our alternative strategies, although overall we recorded a small outflow as our clients reduced their equity allocations. In the fourth quarter, we returned to net inflows and that momentum has continued into this year.

“We continue to enhance the aspects of our business that differentiate us by investing in talent and innovative new technologies, enriching our culture, diversifying our investment capabilities, and developing deep client relationships. In doing so, we remain well positioned to help our clients meet their investment goals and thus deliver sustainable value for our shareholders.”
