Investment summary

For FY16, DeA reported good growth in its AUM (to €11.3bn) and positive performance from its fund investments that offset weakness at Migros, its Turkish retail investment. The company has a robust net financial position of €80m at the holding company level, equivalent to c 15% of NAV. Adjusted for dividends of €0.12 paid during the year, NAV per share increased from €1.95 to €2.03. DeA continues to trade at a significant discount to NAV, which appears conservative given the new momentum in asset management and the diversity of the investment portfolio.

Industry outlook

DeA's alternative asset exposure has attractions in the context of Italy's subdued economic outlook. The potential for significant realisations from maturing private equity funds over the next three to four years means that €130-150m could be available for reinvestment in new fund launches, co-investments or distributions to shareholders, even after meeting outstanding investment commitments.
