Paris, 30 July 2021

 

Amundi’s Board of Directors, chaired by Yves Perrier, convened on 29 July 2021 to review the financial statements for the second quarter of 2021.

Commenting on the figures, Valérie Baudson, CEO, said:

“Amundi posted very good financial and operating performance in the second quarter of 2021, driven by a growth momentum in all business lines, especially with buoyant inflows in MLT assets. The strong growth in net income was amplified by a very favourable market environment.

The recent strategic initiatives (the partnership with Banco Sabadell, the joint venture with Bank of China, and Amundi Technology) are starting to bear fruits. The acquisition of Lyxor, whose integration is being actively prepared, will be a new growth driver.

Such strong performances prove that Amundi's development strategy is relevant. Our Group has all the strengths needed to pursue its profitable growth trajectory”.
