Total funds under management and administration increased over the quarter to 31 March 2021 by 2.0% to £25.6 billion.

'This rise mirrored positive market performance adding £0.5 billion to FuMA and compares favourably to a 1.6% increase in the MSCI PIMFA Private Investor Balanced Index over the same period,' the company said.

The average FuMA over the financial year to 31 March 2021 was £23.2 billion, a decrease of 4.1% from £24.2 billion over the prior financial year, reflecting the 'stressed market conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic,' it added.

Total revenue for the year remained slipped to £171.2 million from £173.0 million, following a 68.8% reduction in interest income due to lower base rates, though was largely offset by a 3.2% rise in net fee income and 1.5% in commission income.
