(Reuters) – London’s main index recovered for the second session running on Thursday as global markets were boosted by a round of Chinese data that soothed some of the growth fears, which had afflicted trading in the past week.

Fund supermarket Hargreaves Lansdown <HRGV.L>, whose shares took a beating in June as nearly a quarter of its clients were exposed to Neil Woodford’s suspended fund, advanced nearly 4% after a forecast-beating rise in full-year assets.

The FTSE 100 <.FTSE>, which has fallen almost 5% since President Donald Trump said he would slap tariffs on more Chinese imports last week, climbed 0.3% by 0715 GMT. The more domestically-focused midcap index <.FTMC> rose 0.6%.
