Investment summary

New mandates helped increase AUME 36% to $51.1bn in the three months to December, its highest level in over five years. These mandates were already in our estimates, although the favourable market movements ($1.4bn vs our estimate $0.3bn) and the new higher-margin $600m mandate announced earlier in January were not. Record remains in advanced discussions relating to a ‘handful’ of new higher-margin dynamic hedging mandates ranging in size from $1-10bn and delivery on these would have a material impact on forecasts. The next quarterly update will be released on 23 April.

Industry outlook

Record believes there is a particular opportunity for US investors to benefit from a currency hedging strategy. US investors holding assets denominated in foreign currencies have benefited from the weakness of the US dollar on a trade-weighted basis since 2001. However, this cycle may reverse, potentially eroding the additional unhedged gains US investors have enjoyed over the period.
