Total net inflows across the group were £2.1 billion, compared to £0.6 billion year-on-year.

'Although we continue to expect market volatility during 2021 as well as continuing low interest rates, we remain focused on enhancing our services to clients and delivering growth,' the company said.

'We will continue to balance this investment with prevailing market conditions, maintaining strict cost discipline and identifying inorganic opportunities that are a strong cultural fit.'
