City of London has released its annual results for 2018. As headline figures were given in the July trading statement, there are no big surprises in these results. FUM grew 9.5% in US Dollar terms over the year to $5.1bn. With Sterling strengthening relative to the US Dollar and lower fee margins, revenue growth was a little behind this at 8.4%. Total expenses grew at 8.2%, giving a net 8.9% growth in operating profit to £12.5m. EPS growth was 7.0%, lower than the 10% increase in earnings due to fewer shares being held by employee benefits schemes.
