Brooks Macdonald International sees funds growth

Posted: 30/07/2018

The Channel Islands subsidiary of independent investment manager Brooks Macdonald has seen double-digit growth in the value of funds it manages and a strong surge in net new business over the past 12 months, according to figures published by the group last week.

Figures announced as part of its trading update for the financial year ended 30 June 2018 show that the value of discretionary funds under management (FUM) in the firm’s international division, which includes the firm’s Guernsey and Jersey offices, grew by 10.7 per cent over the year, and by 4.4 per cent over the quarter, to stand at £1.7bn.

The update also shows that Brooks Macdonald’s Channel Islands business reported annual growth in net new business of 6.4 per cent, up from 1.3 per cent the previous year.

Meanwhile, the Brooks Macdonald Group as a whole added considerably to its discretionary FUM over the past 12 months to end the financial year at £12.4bn, an increase of 18.7 per cent over the year and 6.5 per cent over the quarter.

Darren Zaman, CEO, International, Brooks Macdonald, commented: “It’s been another year of impressive growth for Brooks Macdonald as a whole and the Channel Islands are continuing to play a key part in that success, as we witness strong growth in our discretionary fund management business. 

“Particularly pleasing is the fact that this growth has been driven by a material increase in net new business, a result of the effort we are putting into driving forward Brooks Macdonald’s international strategy by building client and adviser relationships in key overseas markets, including the Middle East and Africa.”
