Investment summary

Underlying profits in H115 were flat compared with H114. Revenue from mandate wins in H214, together with cost savings, went some way in offsetting revenue declines from re-pricing its dynamic hedging product and the previously known loss of a large dynamic hedging client on 1 April 2014. Record reports that it is experiencing a good level of new business enquiries across all geographies and products. More divergent monetary policy and wider interest rate differentials could produce more currency volatility and demand for its hedging and currency for return strategies. Our estimates do not include new mandate wins (or losses) and would benefit from any conversion of this increased market interest.

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.
