Investment summary

At the end of Record’s Q223, to end September, total assets under management equivalent (AUME) stood at $80.8bn, 3.7% above the end June level or up 12.6% in sterling terms to £72.3bn. We calculate that average AUME in sterling terms for H123 was 10% above the prior year period and nearly 5% above H222. There was a net inflow of $6.6bn in Q223 while net market and other moves were negative at $3.7bn. Increased market interest rate differentials allowed enhanced passive hedging service to generate further returns for clients and £0.5m in performance fees in the quarter.
