Chief Executive comment:
"Our mutual fund franchise again delivered healthy net flows of £0.5 billion this quarter, resulting in cumulative net mutual fund flows of £2.1 billion for the full year. 2015 has been another good year for Jupiter, reflecting our strategy to diversify by product, client type and geography, all supported by strong investment performance. Across the whole of 2015, these combined to deliver organic mutual fund flow growth of eight per cent and to increase total AUM by 12 per cent to £35.7 billion despite broadly flat markets."
