Highlights

  • Utmost International assets under administration (“AUA”) grew to £55.9bn at YE 2021, an increase of 9% from YE 2020, supported by strong net flows and positive market movements
  • The Quilter International acquisition completed on 30 November 2021, which added AUA of £24.1bn at YE 2021 to the existing Utmost International AUA of £31.8bn
  • Total gross sales for the year were £4.8bn, a 50% increase on the pro-forma gross sales of £3.2bn in 2020
