Platinum Asset Management Ltd (ASX: PTM) announced its funds under management (FUM) this afternoon after the market had closed. 

Every month the Asian-focused fund manager tells investors whether its total FUM has increased or decreased. 

Over the month to 31 December 2019 Platinum Asset Management saw its FUM increase by $177.7 million to $25.1 billion, up from $24.9 billion at 30 November 2019. 

However, during December Platinum experienced net outflows of approximately $104 million, which included net outflows from the Platinum Trust Funds of approximately $49 million. This means that the growth of total FUM was a result of market movements over the month. 

The movement of FUM is key for a fund manager because it’s what provides Platinum base management fees each year, which is a large source overall revenue for a fund manager, along with any performance fees.
