Quilter targeting faster growth amid robust core performance

(Sharecast News) - Wealth manager Quilter announced a 2% increase in assets under management and administration (AuMA) on Tuesday, standing at £101.7bn at the end of June.
The FTSE 250 company said the rise was mainly due to favourable market movements, contributing £1.9bn, and a robust performance in its core business.

It reported gross inflows of £5.5bn in the first half of 2023, distributed evenly across both quarters. Net inflows for the same period totalled £0.7bn.

Despite a 9% decline in the overall market, Quilter said second-quarter flows increased by 5% year-on-year.

"We are targeting an additional £50m of simplification savings by 2025 and we expect consensus profit estimates for this year to increase materially," the company said

Adjusted profit before tax jumped 25% to £76m, while revenue also grew, by 3% to £312m, bolstered by revenue from corporate cash balances.

Quilter said it was on track to achieve its target of £45m in 'simplification' cost savings by the end of 2023 - one year ahead of schedule. An additional saving of £50m was then expected by the end of 2025.

The interim dividend was lifted 25% to 1.5p per shar.

"We have delivered a strong improvement in first half profitability, pleasing flow outcomes in the Quilter channel and improved our market share of new advised platform flows," said chief executive officer Steven Levin.
