Biggest movers on the ASX Wednesday 14 July 2021

Investment advisory Praemium (PPS) was the dominant mover on the ASX today. Shares in the company rose 12.4% to $1.09 by midday.

"There were a couple of big announcements on the ASX on Wednesday that triggered PPS share price movement," said Finder's investments editor Kylie Purcell.

"First, Praemium has proposed the sale of its global operations business with strong apparent interest from potential buyers. Such a move could shore up capital and offer better growth opportunities on the home turf."

"It also released strong growth numbers in its quarterly report. For the June 21 quarter, PPS has reported record inflows of $1.2 billion and record total funds under administration (FUA) of $41.7 billion."

Praemium offers managed investment funds and proprietary software typically used in the investment advice sector.
