Investment summary

Record’s first half results, to end September, were in line with expectations with underlying revenue nearly matching H115, a period that had benefited from a high level of AUME within a bespoke tactical mandate. The underlying operating margin was held at 33% and pre-tax profits on the same basis were 2% lower at £3.6m. The board indicated its intention, subject to business conditions, to maintain the full year ordinary dividend of 1.65p and will consider paying out at least part of any current year earnings in excess of this dividend. AUME increased by 4% compared with end March to $55bn and client numbers were 61 vs 58. The shares remain modestly rated in the context of UK asset managers and sustained performance from the currency for return strategy and fund inflows are potential catalysts for a rerating.

Industry outlook

Record reports that recent currency volatility accompanying the Brexit vote and US election has generated a higher level of interest among clients and potential clients across geographies and products. Institutional decisions on allocations take time so the benefits of this are likely to materialise over the medium term but the breadth of interest is encouraging.
