GQG delivers FUM update

The GQG share price is edging lower as investors digest the company’s latest FUM report.

In its release, GQG reported that total FUM lifted by US$4.2 billion between 30 April and 31 May.

The biggest rise came from the international equity portfolio which improved by US1.8 billion to US$33.7 billion.

In addition, emerging markets equity jumped by US$1 billion to US$24.7 billion, and global equity swelled by US$0.8 billion to US$29.7 billion.

Lastly, the United States equity division grew by US$0.6 billion to US$6.5 billion.

Across the board, total FUM stood at US$94.6 billion at the end of May.

This is in sharp contrast to when GQG reported a fall of FUM to US$90.4 in the prior month.

GQG share price snapshot

The GQG share price has fallen 26% over the past 12 months. When looking at the year to date, it’s down roughly 7%.

It’s worth noting that the company’s shares reached a 52-week low of $1.123 in early March. This came off the back of GQG’s February FUM update which disappointed investors.

However, GQG shares have since bounced back and are up 12% over the past month.

GQG has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11.47 and commands a market capitalisation of around $4.86 billion.
