    TORONTO, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Brookfield Asset Management's profit slid 19.2 percent in the fourth quarter because of a sharp rise in costs, but the Canadian property, power and infrastructure investor raised its dividend due to rising cash flows.

    Brookfield Asset said on Friday that it had earned $776 million, or 72 cents a share, compared with $960 million, or 86 cents a share, a year earlier.

    Revenue rose 30.6 percent to C$5.4 billion, while direct costs jumped 49.7 percent to C$4.1 billion.

    Funds from operations, a measure of cash flow for real estate management companies, rose to C$459 million from C$397 million, prompting the company to raise its quarterly dividend by 7 percent to 15 Canadian cents, it said.

    Shares of Brookfield Asset were down 0.5 percent at C$38.25 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
