F&C hit by £4.89bn net outflows in three months

F&C Asset Management suffered net outflows of £4.89 billion in the last three months of 2012.

The largest part of that sum came from the £2.4bn withdrawn by Friends Life as it takes management of fixed income assets in-house. Friends Life is expected to take out a further £6.2bn of assets in by the middle of this year.

In the quarter, the third-party institutional business saw net outflows of £956 million due to the loss of cash management and Government bond mandates.

The wholesale business saw net outflows of £340m but there was £30m of net inflows at the consumers business, while retail and investment trusts also reported positive inflows.

F&C said assets under management were at £95.2bn at the end of the year, down from £96.8bn in the previous quarter.
