Chief Executive James Wood-Collins, commenting on trading, said "Overall AuME increased during the period due to the commencement of new passive hedging mandates. AuME has also increased over the first six months of the financial year, with Passive Hedging having grown by 11%.
"As we had anticipated, we have seen a notable increase in the level of Requests for Proposals towards the end of the quarter, particularly for Passive Hedging in Switzerland. We are hopeful that we will be successful in securing additional mandates from these proposals.
"Whilst the UK continues to be a competitive market with lower levels of activity, we continue to see encouraging engagement with prospective clients and investment consultants in North America.
"We remain confident that further progress can be made in acquiring new business during the second half of the financial year."
Record will announce its half-year results on 16th November and its third-quarter trading update on 18th January 2013.
