Investment summary

FY16 saw good growth in its alternative AUM, positive performance from fund investments, offsetting weakness at Migros, the retailer quoted in Turkey, and a robust holding company net financial position after €31.6m in dividends (€0.12 per share), a level that DeA will maintain in 2017. The shares continue to trade at a wide discount to both NAV and our assessment of fair value. Returning momentum to asset management and a diverse investment portfolio have the potential to create further value, while the prospect of cash inflows as private equity fund investments mature provides a measure of protection against any rise in market volatility.

Industry outlook

The subdued economic outlook in Italy, deferral of economic reforms and the ongoing task of strengthening the banking system, tends to support the case for alternative assets, independent of banks and with absolute return objectives.
