Investment summary

Record's results for the year ended 31 March were in line with our forecasts when adjusted for £315k of performance fees that we had not forecast. Previously reported AUME was 3% lower in dollar terms at $53.7bn and showed a continued shift towards Passive Hedging mandates (82% of the total). Passive hedging is lower margin but provides a relatively stable revenue source that now covers 85% of fixed costs before profit sharing. Record went into the EU referendum prepared to best manage the impact of anticipated volatility, where possible limiting trading, to avoid outsized transaction costs and cash flows. The expected 1.65p dividend was declared but the board now considers the regulatory capital buffer sufficiently strong that it will consider the return of excess future earnings via special dividends. We expect no material change to our forecasts.

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.
