Interim Management Statement

For the quarter ended 31 December 2015

 

Solid growth in core income and funds despite challenging market conditions

 

Brewin Dolphin Holdings PLC (the 'Company' or the 'Group') today issues the following Interim Management Statement for the first quarter of the financial year, ending 30 September 2016.

 

Q1 Highlights1

 

·    

Total funds grew by 3.8% to £33.2bn (Q1 2015: £33.1bn, FY 2015: £32.0bn).

·    

Total core funds2 grew by 4.2% in the quarter to £29.7bn.

·    

The FTSE WMA Private Investor Series Balanced Portfolio index increased by 3.2% in the quarter to 31 December 2015, and the FTSE 100 increased by 3.0% in the same period.

·    

Total net discretionary funds inflow of £0.3bn excluding transfers, representing 4.8% annualised growth.

·    

Record Q1 discretionary funds inflow of £0.6bn driven by ongoing inflows from all channels.

·    

Rate of outflows from discretionary funds stabilising; £0.3bn in the quarter.

·    

Core income growth of 3.1% to £60.6m (Q1 2015: £58.8m) driven by organic fund flow, improved transaction volumes and associated commissions coupled with strong growth in financial planning income; against a backdrop of broadly flat markets over the last 12 months.

·    

Continued decline in other income to £6.6m (Q1 2015: £8.9m), in line with expectations, following refocusing of the business on core services.

·    

Post period end, reorganisation announced, increasing the representation of client-facing leaders on the Executive Committee, to further support delivery of the growth strategy.

 

1 Q1 2015 results restated to exclude discontinued operations.

2 Core funds comprise discretionary and execution only funds.

 

David Nicol, Chief Executive said:

 

'We have made an encouraging start to the financial year. Continued net organic growth in funds, driven by increasing inflows into our core discretionary service, underlines the quality of the business despite the volatility in financial markets. We remain focused on our clear strategy to grow the business. Turbulent market conditions may persist for some time but our continued progress, strategic focus and financial strength all give us confidence in pursuing our long-term growth agenda.'
