FRANKFURT (Reuters) – German asset manager DWS said its fourth-quarter earnings rose significantly more than analysts had expected, driven by higher performance, transaction and management fees.
Quarterly adjusted profit before tax jumped to 378 million euros ($433 million), up from 212 million euros a year earlier, it said in a statement on Thursday, citing preliminary results.
The company added it proposed an annual dividend of 2.00 euros per share. The group is due to report full fourth-quarter results on March 11.
