  • Record net inflows of €1.4 billion at Private Banking
  • Client assets increased by 13% to €115.0 billion and AuM were up by 13% to €99.0 billion on the back of net inflows of €6.9 billion
  • Solid cost management pushed down costs by €12.3 million to €371.8 million

Van Lanschot Kempen today released its 2020 full-year results. Karl Guha, Chairman, said: “Covid-19 has been a defining feature of the year. In more ways than one, it has forced us all to confront the fragility and realities of life.

“We have had a reasonably good year financially, notwithstanding the market dislocations and limitations placed upon us by the pandemic. Our investments over the last several years in technology – in particular in our omni-channel service model and other forms of digitalisation – have allowed us to serve our clients well and be there for them in their times of need. We believe that dedication to clients and catering to their needs is a defining feature for us. And we were well rewarded by our clients, as evidenced by the growth in assets under management. We are very grateful to our clients for the trust they have placed in us. 

“Our resilience as a house in these challenging times is a testimony to our business model and to our people. As a management team, we have done all we could – individually and collectively – to encourage and be there for our colleagues as they grappled with the challenges placed on them by Covid-19. I must admit that I am extremely proud of who we are as a house and of my colleagues. It would be patently unfair not to mention the following two achievements in particular – the transition of IT infrastructure in Belgium to our common platform and the closure of the acquisition of Hof Hoorneman Bankiers. Both have taken Herculean efforts to bring to successful completion.

“We do not know what 2021 will bring but I assure our clients that we will be there for them – regardless of the circumstances. On behalf of the house and my colleagues, I would like to say this to you – we have your backs. And thank you.”

2020 results
Client assets increased to €115.0 billion in the year (2019: €102.0 billion) and assets under management (AuM) advanced to €99.0 billion (2019: €87.7 billion). The robust €6.9 billion net AuM inflow continues the upward trend of the past years, and the year ended on favourable market performance of €3.4 billion despite volatile markets in the first half of 2020. Savings and deposits increased to €10.1 billion (2019: €9.5 billion).

As noted previously, exceptional market circumstances related to Covid-19 in the first quarter triggered losses in structured products activities, which worked out at €35.1 million for 2020. This did not affect the positions of our clients. The loss was partly offset by increased commission income and lower operating expenses, taking the overall net result to €49.8 million (2019: €80.2 millioni).

Conagen’s Novel Solution to Making Natural Capsaicin by Fermentation Accessible22.4.2021 18:23:30 CEST | Press release

Bedford, Mass., April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Scalable, sustainable capsaicin ingredients for its use in food, consumer and industrial products have now become more accessible. Conagen announced it has successfully scaled-up its fermentation process for the production of premium capsaicin and its related capsaicinoid molecules. Chili peppers are widely used as a food additive in spicy and hot cuisines, due to its hot and pungent characteristics. Consumers globally are demanding more clean, natural and exciting flavors, especially hot and spicy flavors. Yet, the challenge in meeting this demand is that capsaicin from chili peppers is difficult to use because of its hot properties, proposing challenges to manufacturers. Capsaicin extraction is limited by the availability of chili peppers, which is subject to fluctuations in price and quality. The market for capsaicin is growing because of its pungent characteristic, which is very versatile in a broad spectrum of applications, includ
