M&G inflows increase 329% to £11.3bn


M&G has seen inflows rise 329 per cent to £11.3bn during the first nine months of the year, up from £2.6bn for the same period in 2011.

Parent company Prudential group chief executive Tidjane Thiam lauded “record net inflows of £12.3bn” for its asset management division, which were supplemented by inflows of £1bn into Asia asset manager Eastspring Investments.

He says: “This is our best ever performance at the nine month stage, surpassing the historically high level of net inflows achieved in 2009.”

The asset manager saw inflows of £6.4bn during the third quarter of 2012, compared with outflows of £300m for the third quarter of 2011.

However, it has warned net retail fund sales in the UK could slow as a result of its decision to slow inflows into its Corporate and Strategic bond funds.

Funds under management increased by 12 per cent to £216.9bn , compared with £194.4bn at 30 September 2011. Its retail operations saw assets under management increase between the second and third quarters to £52bn, up from £48.3bn.

Chelsea Financial Services managing director Darius McDermott says: “The reason M&G has been so strong is it has a diversified range of funds.

“The Global Dividend fund has continued to take money as has the Recovery fund. It has also got Property Portfolio and multi-asset solutions, so it is a very diversified business.”
