Edward Bonham Carter, chief executive officer, says: “Whilst markets rose across the quarter, fears of a double dip recession in developed world economies depressed sentiment before a rally in September. Against this backdrop, it was pleasing to see the group maintain steady inflows in our mutual funds range and make progress in our segregated mandates.”
