LIONTRUST saw inflows of £312m in the six months to September, the asset manager announced yesterday.

Those flows helped push total assets under management up 13 per cent to £3.4bn.

“The recent broadening of the investment remit on the Liontrust income fund to give it a global mandate means we have a strong income offering covering Asia income, UK income and now global income,” said chief executive John Ions.

“Income has never been more important as an investment requirement and the attendance at our current roadshow where these funds have been presented backs this up.”

The group scored a series of hits in the industry rankings, with seven of its eight funds registering returns which put them in the top quartile of their relevant Investment Management Association sectors.
