Out the $41.2 million, the performance fee would contribute $21.4 million to the group’s underlying /statutory profit after tax for the year ending 30 September 2021.

The performance fee for Pendal Australia will contribute to the second-half of the period. During the quarter, Pendal Australia’s FUM was up by $2.4 billion as investment performance offset outflows of $0.2 billion, which were primarily in low margin cash category in institutional channel.

In JOHCM, the net outflows were $1.4 billion primarily from outflows in the UK Dynamic OIEC ($0.8 billion) due to underperformance throughout the pandemic albeit an improvement in the December quarter.

In JOHCM institutional channel, the net outflows of $0.7 billion were recorded after clients rebalanced their portfolios. There was strong flow momentum in the US Pooled funds in the International Select Strategy.
