RECORD PLC

THIRD QUARTER TRADING UPDATE

 

 

Record plc ('Record' or the 'Company'), the specialist currency and derivatives manager, is pleased to announce its trading update for the three months ended 31 December 2021 ("Q3-2022").

 

Leslie Hill, Chief Executive of Record plc, commented:

 

"Inflows were seen into both Dynamic Hedging and the Record EM Sustainable Finance Fund, both higher revenue-margin products, of $1.1 billion and $0.3 billion respectively, notwithstanding the small aggregate net outflow of $0.3 billion for the quarter.

 

"Building strategic partnerships remains core to our growth strategy, and on 17 January we announced the launch of the KOMMUNALIS+ fund in Germany - a new, uniquely structured, private debt fund launched in cooperation with our partners EDS and Universal.  The partnership marries Record's asset management expertise with that of EDS as technology investment specialist, and Universal as a leader in European fund services, and furthermore marks another important step in our journey towards product diversification and our planned expansion into the European institutional market."
