Asset Management recorded AED 3.1 million of losses (Q1 2018: profit AED 4.1 million) driven by a one-off impairment of AED 4.2 million in its business following a change in revenue recognition standards for performance fees.
 
The Lending division recorded AED 4.4 million in losses (Q1 2018: profit 2.2 million), while Corporate reported a loss of AED 21.2 million (Q1 2018: profit AED 7.7 million) due to provisions relating to its legacy investment in an Abraaj-controlled fund and higher financing costs.
