The Magellan Financial Group Ltd (ASX: MFG) share price is having a rollercoaster day today. Earlier in the day, the Magellan share price was falling. But in late afternoon trading, Magellan shares are up 0.24% to $53.83 a share.

So what’s the latest from this ASX fund manager?

Well, this morning, we got Magellan’s latest funds under management (FUM) figures. And they make for some interesting reading.

Magellan reported that its FUM as of 30 June 2021 stood at $113.9 billion. That’s up 7.4% from the previous month’s figure of $106.05 billion. This was made up of $30.88 billion in retail investor FUM. And $83.02 billion in institutional FUM. These figures were both up from last month’s $23.03 billion and $77.02 billion respectively.

All of Magellan’s fund groups experienced increases. But in pole position was Global Equities, which managed to grow from $79.33 billion of FUM in May to $85.44 billion by the end of June.

Additionally, Magellan informed investors that it had also experienced net outflows of $351 million for the quarter ending 30 June 2021. This means that the lion’s share of the increase in FUM would have come from rising share markets and asset prices. These were clearly enough to overcome this net outflow of invested capital.

On a final note, the company also told the markets that it is entitled to collect approximately $30 million in performance fees for the 2021 financial year.
