Hendrik du Toit, founder and Chief Executive, Ninety One: “I am delighted to announce record earnings and assets under management after 31 years in business. Ninety One enjoyed strong support from our clients as reflected by net inflows of £5 billion. The combination of strategic clarity, disciplined execution, competitive long-term investment performance, a motivated, stable team and a long-term approach to business continues to work well for Ninety One.

“Business and market conditions deteriorated towards the end of the reporting period and are expected to remain challenging into the next financial year. The spectre of inflation and rising interest rates in a world of supply chain disruption and increased political uncertainty speaks to volatile markets and a diminished risk appetite among end investors. We nevertheless see substantial long-term growth opportunities for Ninety One in the markets we serve. Our approach to value creation has not changed. We will continue to invest in our people and our business to deliver for our clients. With employee ownership now over 25% our commitment to long-term value creation for all stakeholders is clear.
