Investment summary

Record reported an AUME increase of 2.9% in Q118 to 30 June 2017, reaching $59.9m (31 March: $58.2bn). Inflows offset the previously announced cancellation of a $1.2bn passive hedging mandate. During the quarter a dynamic hedging client notified Record of its intention to switch to a passive mandate. Exchange rate movements increased AUME measured in US dollars by $2.4bn, while market movements reduced AUME by $0.7bn. Fee rates remained steady through the quarter and no performance fees were earned. Despite rerating in the last year, the shares still trade below average multiples for UK asset managers and yield over 4% on our estimated FY18 dividend. Record is due to release a second quarter update on 20 October.

Industry outlook

Sources of uncertainty over the economic and political outlook remain a feature of the global scene, creating an environment in which interest in Record's currency management services is sustained. The tender offer (completed in July) contributes to the expected increase in earnings per share, while the commitment to a progressive dividend policy and ongoing special dividend payments to distribute substantially all earnings means income returns should continue to be attractive.
