Commenting on the Group's results, Mark Coombs, Chief Executive Officer, Ashmore Group plc said:

“These results demonstrate Ashmore's substantial achievements during the year in delivering outperformance for our clients across the full range of investment themes, as well as the investment in distribution and our operating platform returning record gross subscriptions over the period.

“Ashmore’s experience from over two decades of investing solely in Emerging Markets is vital during periods of market volatility such as those experienced recently. It is therefore satisfying that Ashmore’s client base is demonstrating its confidence in our long-standing processes through its resilience. Investors are increasingly recognising the strengths and competitive qualities of Emerging Markets in contrast to the structural challenges faced by Developed Markets, and finding that compelling risk-adjusted returns are available across a range of Emerging Markets fixed income and equity asset classes. Indeed, given the underlying strong, long term fundamental trends, the recent re-pricing presents even greater investment opportunities.

“Ashmore's specialist expertise and broad product range mean the Group is well positioned to access these opportunities for clients and to deliver profitable growth for shareholders.”
