RLAM equity income franchise drives asset gathering

Royal London Asset Management took just under £4 billion in new asset flows over the first half of the year with its equity income franchise run by AA-rated Martin Cholwill (pictured) a big draw.

Over the 12 months, the company's inflows rose 51%, including the transfer of £20 billion in assets from the purchase of Co-operative Insurance Services.
