Record is a specialist independent currency manager that provides a number of products and services, including passive and dynamic hedging, and a range of currency for return strategies, including funds and customised segregated accounts.

Investment summary

After three quarters with outflows in assets under management equivalent (AUME), Record reported a modest inflow in its first quarter ($0.3bn) and the number of clients also ticked up. Competitive pressures remain a feature but the group is countering this with its focus on innovation and service enhancement. The breadth of new business opportunities is encouraging. A combination of sterling weakness and mix changes has led us to revise estimates, with EPS increases of 9% and 8% for this year and next.

Industry outlook

Prospectively, Record continues to focus on client service and product innovation to counter pressure on fee rates and this, together with the potential for further performance fee earnings (not included in our estimates), could provide the basis for positive earnings surprises. The group reports that it is generating good levels of interest across products and geographies.
