Investment summary

After very strong FY17 results Cenkos experienced a disappointing first quarter with market volatility affecting investor sentiment. Since then fee income has improved and Cenkos reported in its AGM statement in May that its pipeline of prospective transactions had improved. As a consequence the company is now more optimistic for the remainder of the year. Cenkos notes that its capital position has been strengthened following asset realisations.

Industry outlook

Cenkos saw a number of board changes last year including the appointment of Anthony Hotson as CEO and Philip Anderson as FD. In the accounts Cenkos set out its strategic goals as being to: grow revenues by retaining existing clients and gaining new ones; create a strong team culture; a disciplined approach to operational efficiency; use the strong balance sheet to grow the business; and increase shareholder distributions. The CEO also underlines the importance of continuing work to strengthen the compliance function and ensure a strong ethical culture.
