Despite (or because of?) the current financial turmoil, derivatives trader IG Group has posted record profits of £163m this year. This is the firm’s second consecutive sector win. Second place ‘investment supermarket’ Hargreaves Lansdown has bucked the market trend to post a 2011 turnover in excess of £200m, and the value of client investments administered by the firm is up £7.1bn to £24.6bn this year. Global asset management company Schroders now has £182.2bn worth of client funds under its sway, and a robustly diverse portfolio. Aberdeen Asset Management CEO Martin Gilbert takes a glass half-full approach: 'Market volatility creates opportunities for long-term investors with a fundamental approach like Aberdeen.'
