Standard Life Investmentsin puolivuotistulos uuteen ennätykseen

Globaalin varainhoitaja Standard Life Investments (SLI) ylsi vuoden 2013 ensimmäisellä puoliskolla uuteen ennätykseen myynnissä sekä tuloksessa ennen veroja. Myynti vuosipuoliskolla oli 7,1 miljardia puntaa (8,3 miljardia euroa), kun edellisvuoden vastaavalla jaksolla myynti oli 0,6 miljardia puntaa (0,7 miljardia euroa). Tulos ennen veroja oli 93 miljoonaa puntaa (108,5 miljoonaa euroa). Hallinnoitavat varat kasvoivat 7 prosenttia 178,8 miljardiin puntaan (208,7 miljardia euroa).

”Standard Life Investments ylsi erinomaisiin tuloksiin vuoden 2013 ensimmäisellä puoliskolla, vaikka volatiliteetti palasi markkinoilla kesäkuussa. Yli 17 prosentin nettovirrat vuositasolla tekevät meistä tällä mittarilla yhden nopeimmin kasvavista globaaleista varainhoitajista”, SLI:n pääjohtaja Keith Skeoch sanoo.

Commenting on Standard Life Investments’ H1 2013 results Keith Skeoch, Chief Executive Officer, said:

“Standard Life Investments produced excellent results in H1 2013, delivering record profit, record net sales, record third party aum and excellent investment performance despite the return of volatility to markets in June. Annualised net flows of over 17% of opening AUM makes us, on this measure, one of the fastest growing global asset managers.

“I am particularly pleased that our ‘focus on change philosophy’ and team based approach continues to deliver innovative investment solutions and strong long term investment performance for our ever increasing number of global clients.”

New Business

We have built a strong and diversified book of third party business by both asset class and geography. The channel mix is also developing with 47% of net flows coming through wholesale and 53% through institutional.

Strong demand from outside the UK, accounting for 51% of net inflows, was led by the US with net inflows of £1.4bn (H1 2012: £0.6bn) - €1.6bn (H1 2012: €0.7bn). AUM generated from sales in our Boston office broke through $5bn – €3.8bn. SICAV funds continue to prove attractive with net inflows of £1.2bn (H1 2012: £0.3bn) - €1.4bn (H1 2012:
€0.4bn) as we have extended some of our most successful SICAV funds into France, Belgium and Italy. Canada generated net inflows of £0.3bn - €0.4bn, while in India our joint venture with HDFC AMC generated net non-cash inflows of £0.1bn - €0.1bn.
