In 2018 financial year, company observed its Assets Under Management close at USD$16.7 billion, sharply up by 76% which reports USD$7.2 billion increase from the prior year.

However, it is important to note that corresponding to the 17% increase in net revenue, operating expenses also edged up by 25% adversely impacting the result from operating activities. NGIâs Earnings before income tax grew to USD$31.57 million, up by 10% which yielded Net profit after income tax to USD$22.42 million. But in the year 2018, company stood under the loop of changes made by US federal law as it had to write off carrying value of Groupâs deferred tax assets of USD$35.5 million, following new federal corporate tax of 21% from 1 January 2018.[optin-monster-shortcode id="wxhmli4jjedneglg1trq"]
