Assets under management for global investment company Amvescap
rose almost 2 percent in the month of April, from $410.9 billion to $419.0 billion, the company reported Tuesday.
The firm's AUM figures have shown consistent growth since the beginning of this year, when Amvescap began releasing AUM data on a monthly rather than quarterly basis. A company spokesperson said that more frequent reporting is intended to increase transparency, but Amvescap will continue to issue commentary on a quarterly basis only.
