Q1 AUMA Update


At our full year 2016 results, we announced that we would no longer be publishing full financial results in the first and third quarters. We also announced that we would report the quarter end Assets under Management and Administration (AUMA), one of our Key Performance Indicators. This information is set out below.

  Assets under Management Assets under Administration AUMA
£bn Institutional Intermediary Asset Management Wealth Management Total Total Total
1 January 2017 226.3 120.1 346.4 39.6 386.0 11.1 397.1
31 March 2017 234.5 127.4 361.9 43.2 405.1 11.2 416.3

The business continued to perform well in the first quarter of 2017 with AUMA increasing 5% to £416.3 billion.

In February, we completed the acquisition of the wealth management business of C. Hoare & Co. This brought around 1,800 clients representing £2.5 billion of assets under management.

We have also expanded our capabilities within Private Assets, with the announcement of the acquisition of Adveq, a Swiss-based high-quality specialist private equity solutions business. We expect the deal to complete in the second half of 2017, subject to regulatory approvals.
