Industry outlook

The group continues to work on enhancing its products and client service while the diversity of its product offering and customer base is helpful in mitigating fluctuations in demand for currency management and competitive pressures. The performance fee generated in FY19 underlines the point that mandates capable of earning such fees have the potential to offset the lower management fees they carry. Record is due to release its FY19 results on 13 June.
