Platinum Asset Management has posted a 2017-18 interim profit of $A102.2m, which is seven per cent higher than previously, while revenue was up 15 per cent at $A185.9m. Meanwhile, Platinum’s co-founder and chief investment officer Andrew Clifford will succeed CEO Kerr Neilson in mid-2018. Neilson has downplayed his decision to step down, adding that he will still be actively involved in the company. He says retail investors should be cautious about investing in exchange-traded funds. He also suggests that while China’s economic growth is likely to slow, the nation’s economy will remain strong.
