In a regular series of presentations on the state of play in their markets by its affiliated managers, GSFM has demonstrated the diversification advantages that multi-affiliate funds management businesses have over their single-manager counterparts.

He said: “For the most part our managers are in inflow status… Flows have been strongest for Munro Partners, who have had a sensational time over the past year or so.

Our most recent addition, Redpoint has especially had a lot of interest because of its sustainable investing strategy, including quite a lot of interest from New Zealand.”
