- Impax Asset Management said assets under management grew 4% in the fourth quarter from the third, owing to 'strong' net inflows of capital.

Despite a challenging backdrop for equity markets, Impax had continued to 'attract strong net inflows of capital and a healthy pipeline of potential new business from asset owners around the world that are seeking investment exposure to the transition to a more sustainable economy,' the company said.

The company recorded net inflows of £235m in the fourth quarter from the third.
