Investment summary

In its September year-end update, Numis reported FY22 revenues were expected to be approximately £144m, down c 33% versus FY21. Unsurprisingly the main source of weakness has been the capital markets activity, where macroeconomic and geopolitical concerns have had a chilling impact on activity. Positively, this was partly offset by M&A advisory, which achieved a further record result and Investment Banking revenues in total are expected to be down 39%. Within Equities the level of institutional activity has been affected, with clients experiencing fund outflows and revenue in this segment is expected to be down c 17%.

Industry outlook

The near-term outlook is generally subdued given market volatility and the uncertain outlook. The M&A advisory area remains more active and was advising on nine announced public bids with an average transaction value of £1.5bn. On a longer view the group’s existing franchise, continued focus on developing its client base and expanding internationally and into complementary areas should underpin its performance through market cycles.
