Frasers Group has become the fourth largest shareholder in the ASOS online fashion retailer.

The Sports Direct and House of Fraser owner now holds 5% of the business after building up shares.

The company now holds 4.3% of Hugo Boss stock directly and an additional 28.5% through the sale of put options.

In a statement, the company said: “The strategic investments Frasers Group makes offer new opportunities for the company, whilst also helping to support the long-term future of the existing retail businesses, and the many thousands of jobs they sustain.”

It added: “Frasers Group has extensive ambitions to grow the business inside and outside of the UK and is constantly exploring the potential for further expansion.”
