Henderson Group plc ('Henderson Group' or 'the Group') is publishing its first Interim Management Statement for 2012 today. The comments below refer to the period from 1 January 2012 to 31 March 2012 ('the period'), unless otherwise stated.
· AUM increased by £2.4bn to £66.7bn at 31 March 2012.

· Strong investment performance over one and three years.
· Repayment of £142.6m debt from existing cash resources today.
Commenting on the Interim Management Statement, Andrew Formica, Henderson Group's chief executive said: "Although equity markets are higher than at the beginning of the year, continued market volatility and economic uncertainty during the period have kept investor demand for risk assets subdued. However, I am encouraged that through this period our investment performance has been strong. Whilst we expect markets to remain volatile, I am confident that our product diversity, investment performance and relentless client focus, position us well for the future."
