- Impax Environmental Markets undershot its benchmark performance after reporting a decline in net assets owing to a coronavirus-led hit to the markets.

'The Covid-19 crisis resulted in extreme market volatility during the first six months of 2020 including sharp market falls in February and especially in March, followed by a significant rebound during the second quarter,' the company said.

Looking ahead, the company said market conditions 'may well be volatile over the coming months.'
