Investment summary

Post EU referendum FX volatility is clear to see in the Q1 AUME update; a quarterly increase of 6.1% in sterling terms but 1.3% lower in dollar terms. Despite positive inflows to higher margin dynamic hedging and currency for return products, there was a small net outflow as passive hedging clients made modest changes in underlying allocations. The net positive impact on sterling revenues and profits is captured by our post FY16 updated results estimate. Broader trends from FY16 include the increasing number of clients (now up to 61 from 55 at the beginning of FY16) and the increased share of Passive Hedging mandates (82% of the total). Passive mandates are lower margin but a relatively stable revenue source that now covers 85% of fixed costs before profit sharing. The forecast 1.65p dividend provides an attractive prospective yield while the board now considers the regulatory capital buffer sufficiently strong that it will consider the return of excess future earnings via special dividends.

Industry outlook

EU legislation affecting Record's business is likely either to be retained or replicated in the negotiations over the UK's departure from the bloc. In the long term, currency volatility should support demand for currency management.
