(Sharecast News) - FTSE 250 (MCX) 19,323.96 -0.65%
FTSE 250-listed investment management firm Man Group dropped 5% after net outflows during the first quarter caught investors by surprise. Assets under management rose by 5% from the preceding three months, as a $9.8bn positive swing in investment performance outweighed $1.6bn in net outflows. However, consensus forecasts were for positive net flows of $1.3bn.

Travel and airline stocks were pulling back after a strong performance the previous session as oil prices continued to be volatile, Wizz Air out of favour.

Hochschild Mining gained on the back of higher gold prices as investors sought a safe haven after Israel's attack on Iran overnight, while Energean benefited from higher oil prices for the same reason.
