Paul Summers looks at two brilliant FTSE 100 (LON: INDEXFTSE:UKX) stocks, both reporting numbers to the market this morning.
British fund supermarket Hargreaves Lansdown on Wednesday posted a 13.9% rise in assets in the first four months of 2019, boosted by market and new business gains. Hargreaves, which offers a range of financial services to largely UK retail customers, said a slow start to the year had picked up into April as clients looked to make use of their tax-free savings allowance before the end of the financial year. Total assets under administration at the end of April were 97.8 billion pounds ($126.26 billion), up from 85.9 billion at the end-December, it said in a statement.

Committees that check if employees get a good deal from their work pension should also consider how retirement schemes examine the impact of climate change on investments, Britain's markets watchdog proposed on Monday. Firms that have workplace pension schemes already have to set up an independent governance committee, or IGC, to check that members are not being ripped off by unfair transaction costs. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is proposing to widen this remit to include a duty to report on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, consumer concerns, and how pension scheme providers select stocks and bonds to invest in, known as stewardship.

Three of the biggest donors to the Leave campaign have told Sky News that they are dismayed by the progress of Brexit and that it would be better for Britain to remain in the European Union than sign up to Theresa May's withdrawal agreement.
