Why are Pendal shares falling today?

According to the ASX announcement, Pendal reported that its FUM stands at AU$135.7 billion for the quarter ended 31 December 2021, which is 2.5% lower than its September quarter. Even positive investment performance and market movements of AU$3.8 billion did not favour Pendal’s FUM.

Furthermore, the company reported a net outflow of AU$6.8 billion during the December quarter. The fund outflow has been driven by the AU$0.8 billion outflow in the Australian institutional

channels and AU$5.1 billion in EUKA’s (Europe, UK & Asia) segregated mandates. The outflow in EUKA’ segregated mandates happened because of redemptions by UK institutional clients.
