Impax Asset Management (IPX:AIM) 201.5p

Gains to date: 59.2%

Original entry point: Buy at 126.6p, 21 September 2017

Our confidence in this asset manager has paid off again with a share price rally following half year results to 31 March which were released on 7 June.

The company had already alerted the market to a 51% increase in assets under management to £11bn and further good news followed.

Impax more than doubled pre-tax profit year-on-year to £5.5m. This was from revenue that had risen by almost 85% to £25.7m.

It hiked its interim dividend by 57% to 1.1p per share and also declared a special dividend of 2.6p per share due to the performance of its second private equity infrastructure fund.

Chief executive Ian Simm says asset owners around the world are now seeking higher levels of exposure to ‘companes leading the transition to a more sustainable economy’ and his company is well placed for ‘further profitable growth’.
