Third Quarter 2016 Trading Statement

 

27 October 2016

 

Henderson Group plc (“Henderson”) publishes its Third Quarter 2016 Trading Statement today. The comments below refer to the period 1 July 2016 to 30 September 2016 (“the period”) unless otherwise stated.

 

Key points

 

·                  Assets under management (“AUM”) at 30 September 2016 up 6% to £100.9bn (30 June 2016: £95.0bn), driven by positive markets and FX gains caused by sterling weakness

 

·                  Net inflow of £0.4bn into Institutional; net outflow of £1.0bn from Retail

 

·                  Long-term investment performance remained strong, with 77% of funds outperforming over three years.

 

Andrew Formica, Chief Executive of Henderson, said: “This quarter’s Retail outflows were concentrated in the period immediately after the UK Referendum, with the rotation out of European assets balanced to some extent by continued demand for absolute return and income generating strategies. Our Institutional business continues to see steady growth, and the pipeline of mandates due to fund in the fourth quarter is strong.

 

“We are very pleased with the supportive response we received from clients, employees and shareholders to the announcement of our merger with Janus Capital Group. Over the next few months, we will continue to serve our clients with our customary dedication, and use the time well to prepare for the launch of Janus Henderson Global Investors.”

Retail net flows were £1.0bn negative, with over 70% of the outflow occurring in July in the immediate aftermath of the UK Referendum. Despite a stronger economic backdrop than many expected, retail client sentiment remains cautious.

 

Net flows in UK Retail were modestly negative, with demand for Henderson UK Absolute Return and Henderson Strategic Bond offset by a rotation away from European equities.

 

In the US Mutual fund range, continued demand for income drove net inflows to Global Equity Income, but this was counterbalanced by outflows from European Focus to give a net outflow of £0.3bn.

 

SICAVs in Continental Europe and Latin America saw a net outflow of £0.8bn as clients reduced their exposure to European assets and held higher proportions of their portfolios in cash.

 

Institutional net flows were £0.4bn positive, reflecting continued success in Henderson’s core UK business and an increasingly global client base in Continental Europe, the US and Australia. There were inflows this quarter into global technology, global natural resources, small and mid-cap US equities, and credit, with flows in the pipeline into emerging markets equity, global credit, European high yield, Australian fixed income and global buy and maintain credit. The pipeline of new business signed but not funded remains strong after the announcement of Henderson’s merger with Janus Capital Group.

 

Investment performance

 

Long-term investment performance remained strong, with 77% of funds outperforming over three years (June 2016: 77%). Over one year, 54% of funds outperformed (June 2016: 55%).
