During May 2017, Funds under Management grew by 1.8% month on month to $23.9 billion against 3.4% in April 2017. Recently, the company announced new Exchange Traded Managed Funds (“ETMFs”) and changes to product fees. The group will launch two Exchange Traded Managed Funds (ETMFs) in August 2017 as part of the strategy to help investors to access Platinum’s International and Asian equity strategies via the ASX. These new products will be structured as feeder funds into the existing unlisted Platinum International Fund and Platinum Asia Fund respectively, therefore they will have the same portfolio composition, portfolio managers and investment strategy as the underlying funds. The group has lowered the standard management costs on the Platinum Trust Funds and Platinum Global Fund from 1.5% to 1.35% pa to benefit clients with regards to channel choice and price options. However, the current fee and cost reductions will not have impact on 2017 revenues or profit as will not come into effect until on or about 3 July 2017, but are expected to lower PTM’s 2018 revenue.
