BUSINESS UPDATE

 

Record plc ("Record" or the "Company"), the specialist currency manager, announces today that the size of the tactical bespoke mandate which had increased by $1.75 billion in the first calendar quarter of 2015, has reduced by approximately $2.8 billion with immediate effect.  This decrease is a consequence of currency market movements, and the size of this mandate may continue to be volatile.  Fee rates for this mandate are consistent with previously published average fee rates for return-seeking strategies.

 

Record will announce its second quarter trading update on 16th October 2015.

Notes to Editors

 

Record plc

 

Record is a specialist currency manager and provider of currency hedging services for institutional clients.  Founded in 1983, Record has established a market leading position as a currency manager.  Specifically, the Group has a leading position in managing Dynamic Hedging and Currency for Return for institutional clients.

 

The Group has three principal product lines:

 

-    Dynamic Hedging, formerly known as Active Hedging, where Record seeks to eliminate the impact of currency movements on elements of clients' investment portfolios that are denominated in foreign currencies when these movements are expected to result in an economic loss to the client, but not to do so when they are expected to result in an economic gain;

-    Passive Hedging, where Record seeks to eliminate fully or partially the economic impact of currency movements on elements of clients' investment portfolios that are denominated in foreign currencies; and

-    Currency for Return, formerly known as Absolute Return, in which Record enters into currency contracts for clients with the objective of generating positive returns.
