Assets under management grew from £18.6 billion in the first quarter of 2011 to £20.1 billion in the first three months of this year.

Architas’ total assets were up 37% to £10.7 billion. Elevate’s total sales were up 14% to £426m. Total assets on the platform now stand at £4 billion.

Platform business now represents half of all individual sales, up from 39% in the first three months of 2011.

Mike Kellard, chief executive of Axa Wealth, says: “The markets may well be ’schizophrenic’ in the words of the IMF, but Axa Wealth is still experiencing strong appetite from investors.”
