Business Update

RNS Number : 5134A
Record PLC
29 September 2015




Record plc ("Record" or the "Company"), the specialist currency manager, announces today that it has, subject to contract, been selected for a dynamic hedging mandate of approximately $600 million in size (with AuME quoted by convention in US Dollars).  The annualised fee rate for this mandate is expected to be consistent with Record's standard dynamic hedging management fee scales.  Assuming contract negotiations conclude successfully, this mandate is expected to commence, and hence revenues to start accruing, by the end of the calendar year.


Record will announce its second quarter trading update on 16th October 2015 and its half year results on 24th November 2015.

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.
