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.

 

Record (LSE: REC) was admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange on 3rd December 2007.
