Liontrust boosted as assets jump 13pc

City A.M. Reporter
LIONTRUST Asset Management has seen its assets rise 13 per cent so far this year, boosted by further client inflows and buoyant markets.

The firm yesterday posted net positive inflows of £72m since the end of 2011, as sales of funds to retail investors outweighed outflows from institutional and offshore funds. The results reflect Liontrust’s continuing recovery from the loss of star managers Jeremy Lang and William Pattisson.
