I believe Schroders (LSE: SDR) ambitious plans to turbocharge business across Asia, North  America and Europe should set it on course for exceptional profits growth in the years ahead.

The asset manager advised in a bubbly trading statement on Thursday that assets under management and administration stomped to a record high in the third quarter, up 9% from the start of the year to stand at £430.2bn as of the end of September.

5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50

One notable billionaire made 99% of his current wealth after his 50th birthday. And here at The Motley Fool, we believe it is NEVER too late to start trying to build your fortune in the stock market. Our expert Motley Fool analyst team have shortlisted 5 companies that they believe could be a great fit for investors aged 50+ trying to build long-term, diversified portfolios.

At its core Institutional division, assets on its books rose to £247.4bn from £226.3bn at the start of the year. And looking on the Intermediary side, assets under management increased to £128.1bn from £120.1bn previously.

Master manager

As well as looking increasingly towards foreign shores to generate future business (it already operates out of 27 countries), Schroders is aiming to keep assets piling higher by doubling-down on product diversification and by focusing on key growth themes like retirement solutions and emerging markets.

Accordingly the City is pencilling in handsome earnings growth for the near-term and beyond. Schroders is predicted to deliver a 10% earnings improvement in 2017, and an extra 7% rise is predicted for next year. As a result the financial services colossus changes hands on a forward P/E ratio of 16.9 times, decent value in my opinion given the company’s excellent momentum.

Meanwhile, those seeking mighty dividend growth down the line should also pay the FTSE 100 business close attention, I reckon. Last year’s reward of 93p per share is anticipated to rise to 103p this year, yielding 3%, and again to 109p in 2018, resulting in a tasty 3.1% yield.

Schroders hit record tops above £35 per share earlier this month, and its share price has scrambled 24% higher during the course of the past year alone. I expect much, much more to come as its momentum in hugely-lucrative international growth markets picks up.

Build a fortune

CRH (LSE: CRH) has proved a go-to earnings generator in years gone by and, with its appetite for M&A action showing no sign of slowing, I am backing the building materials mammoth to keep on swelling the bottom line.

And I am not alone either. The Square Mile’s army of analysts are forecasting earnings expansion of 14% and 13% in 2017 and 2018 respectively. As if this wasn’t enough, like Schroders, CRH is also expected to keep lifting dividends at a healthy rate.

A payment of 67.5 euro cents per share is predicted for this year, creating a tasty 2.2% yield. And the yield moves to 2.3% for 2018 thanks to predictions of a 70.6 cent reward.

CRH made a bid for Kansas-based cement specialist Ash Grove for $3.5bn back in September and, while the move has been derailed by a $3.7bn-$3.8bn offer from another suitor, it underlines the company’s desire to keep the acquisitions coming thick and fast. Indeed, with the business committed to building its global footprint to light a fire under future earnings, I reckon it is worthy of its slightly-elevated prospective P/E ratio of 17.8 times.

Is this little-known company the next ‘Monster’ IPO?

Right now, this ‘screaming BUY’ stock is trading at a steep discount from its IPO price, but it looks like the sky is the limit in the years ahead.

Because this North American company is the clear leader in its field which is estimated to be worth US$261 BILLION by 2025.

The Motley Fool UK analyst team has just published a comprehensive report that shows you exactly why we believe it has so much upside potential.

But I warn you, you’ll need to act quickly, given how fast this ‘Monster IPO’ is already moving.
