Investment summary

Record has reported that assets under management equivalent (AUME) in dollar terms were broadly flat in the quarter to December 2014, with net inflows amounting to just $0.1bn. However, it announced that it expects $2bn of net inflows in the current quarter and we estimate that these will produce a small uplift in profits. It has recently published a business update in which it has said that it has won an additional $1.75bn bespoke currency for return contract from an existing client, though it adds that the contract may only be temporary. We have not altered our forecasts for this contract.

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.
