New figures show the Channel Islands subsidiary of independent investment manager Brooks Macdonald saw the value of funds it manages grow by 9% over the second half of 2017.
The details are revealed in the firm’s half year Trading Update which also shows that Brooks Macdonald’s international division, which includes the firm’s Guernsey and Jersey offices, saw its discretionary Funds Under Management (FUM) business grow by 9.1% from £1.53bn to £1.67bn over the period.
The group as a whole added over £1.2bn in discretionary FUM during the half year to end the period at £11.7bn. That represents a 12.3% increase.
Darren Zaman, CEO, International, Brooks Macdonald, said: “We continue to see strong sustained growth in our discretionary investment business in the Channel Islands, which is pleasing in an environment that remains challenging. The focus we’re putting on client and adviser relationships in key overseas markets, including the Middle East and Africa, is really paying dividends as our Guernsey and Jersey offices continue to play a key role in driving forward Brooks Macdonald’s international strategy.”
