Investment summary

Record's results for the 6 months to 30 September 2015 reported that underlying PBT increased by 9% y-o-y and the operating margin was 33%. Assets under management equivalent amounted to $53.3bn, down from $56.6bn at June, largely because of the previously announced reduction in size of a bespoke currency for return mandate. The interim dividend was raised to 0.825p, from 0.75p last year. The capital and cash position remain strong. Record continues to see interest in its hedging strategies and a high level of client engagement. We made small changes to our FY16 and FY17 forecasts following the publication of these results.

Industry outlook

The emergence of a strengthening US dollar could provide a material opportunity for Record in the large US market. US investors holding assets denominated in foreign currencies have benefited from the weakness of the US dollar on a trade-weighted basis since 2001; hedging could protect these gains and improve portfolio efficiency by reducing volatility. The possibility of an imminent rise in US interest rates is creating interest in Record's currency return strategies.
