Investment summary

Cenkos differentiates itself by its meritocratic remuneration policy leading to a flexible cost structure; staff ownership of risk; focus on diversified, profitable niches; and returns of capital to its owners. The quality of staff attracted to this model has delivered outperformance in tough conditions but also in better ones. 2014 revenue and profits were a little ahead of forecast. While positive, the key issue is that the model is delivering an excellent flow of deals of increasingly large size (e.g. the recent Haversham £1bn + deal). 2015 has started with “a number of significant fundraisings”. Shareholders are being well rewarded with the dividend up 42% and a 9% share buy-back. Our numbers are under review.

Industry outlook

Cenkos has completed and is working on a number of significant fund-raisings. The pipeline commentary is very positive. Delivery of this pipeline is dependent on market conditions, which recently have been uncertain.
