IMPAX Asset Management Group has recorded growth across the board in its audited results for the year ended 30 September, the company announced yesterday.

The London-based firm increased assets under management (AuM) by 21 per cent to £2.8bn and saw its revenues rise to £20.4m, from £18.5m last year.

The British asset manager also saw its profits before tax jump £100,000 to £3.5m, and operating earnings rise to £5.3m, from £4.3m the previous year.

Peel Hunt analyst Stuart Duncan was bullish on the company’s outlook: “Impax’s figures this morning highlight the impressive growth that the business is delivering. Higher AuM is trans­lating into increased profit­ability, with the momentum cont­inuing into the current year. We believe Impax deserves a higher rating, and therefore reiterate our buy recommendation.”

Impax chairman Keith Falconer said: “It is pleasing to report several milestones this year: the addition of a sustainable property capability in response to strong investor demand for this real asset class, [and] a 25 per cent growth in our AuM.”
