(ShareCast News) - AIM-listed investment management firm Rasmala is to buy a further stake in its subsidiary Rasmala Holdings Limited (RHL) from minority shareholders for $6m.

In 2015, RHL generated pre-tax profit from continuing operations of $2.6m.

Chief executive Zak Hydari said: "We are delighted to have been able to increase our interest in RHL. It was always our objective to own 100% of RHL and this further acquisition will help us towards that target."
