- Schroders said it continued to perform well in Q1 2017 with assets under management and administration (AUMA) increasing 5% to £416.3bn at March 31, from £397.1bn a Jan. 1.

In February, it completed the acquisition of the wealth management business of C. Hoare & Co. This brought about 1800 clients representing £2.5bn of assets under management.
