Oct 27 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index is seen opening 11 points lower at 5,781, according to financial bookmakers, with futures up 0.19% ahead of cash market open.

St. James's Place: Upmarket wealth manager St. James's Place (SJP.L) reported record funds under management of 118.7 billion pounds ($154.70 billion), boosted by third-quarter net inflows of 1.4 billion pounds.

EasyJet: British airline easyJet (EZJ.L) said it raised $398.6 million from the sale and leaseback of nine aircraft to boost its pandemic-hit finances.

Genius Sports: London-based Genius Sports Group Ltd said it would go public through a merger with New York-listed special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) dMY Technology Group Inc II (DMYD.N), valuing it at about $1.5 billion including debt.

Whitbread: Premier-Inn owner Whitbread (WTB.L) reported a loss for the first half and said market performance has slowed since early-October after the government instructed people to work from home and imposed new regional lockdowns.

HSBC: HSBC Holdings PLC (HSBA.L) posted a 35% drop in quarterly profit, better than expected, as higher loan loss provisions on the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic were cushioned by the reining in of expenses.

Rolls-Royce: British aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc (RR.L) plans to temporarily close factories, reduce working hours and cut benefits as part of new cost-cutting measures, the Financial Times reported on Monday.

Gold: Gold prices rose after a fresh wave of coronavirus infections raised concerns over a global economic recovery and bolstered the precious metal's safe-haven appeal.

Oil: Oil prices eked out small gains after recent sharp losses, but sentiment remained subdued as a surge in global coronavirus cases hit prospects for crude demand while supply is rising.

The UK blue-chip index (.FTSE) closed 1.2% lower on Monday weighed by travel and energy stocks, while a resurgence in novel coronavirus cases stoked fears of a faltering economic recovery and dragged down European markets.
