Share

Amsterdam/’s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands, 26 August 2021


  • Net profitincreased to €58.3million (H1 2020: 9.5million)
  • Recordnet AuM inflows at Private Clients of €2.4billion; net outflowsat Wholesale & Institutional Clients of 2.0 billion, due to a fewinstitutional mandates
  • Client assets increased to 121.0billionand AuM to 104.2billion
  • Strong growth in management fee income
  • Strong capital ratio to 21.9% (2020: 24.3%); decrease caused by a more prudent calculation of market risk, among other factors
  • Pay out 2019 dividend and remainder 2020 dividend – totalling €1.95 per share in beginning of Q4

Karl Guha, Chairman, said: “It would be fair to say that we have had a good first half of the year. The numbers speak for themselves. The performance was strong across the board. The growth in assets under management in our high yielding Private Clients segment is particularly gratifying – notwithstanding some of the headwinds we have had in our institutional business. We believe that our approach of combining “personal touch”, professional expertise and technology is beginning to bear fruit. There is every reason to believe that we are well positioned for further growth in all our businesses.

“Furthermore, our inorganic growth in assets under management was further strengthened, through our successful acquisitions in the Netherlands and in Belgium. As such, it is an important step towards realising our goal of being the most respected and successful wealth management house in the Benelux.”

Clients assets and assets under management
During the first six months of the year, client assets increased to €121.0 billion (2020: €115.0 billion). Total assets under management (AuM) increased to €104.2 billion (2020: €99.0 billion) on the back of total net inflows of €0.3 billion and market performance of €4.8 billion. We recorded exceptionally high net inflows in AuM at Private Clients to the tune of €2.4 billion and we saw an outflow of a few institutional mandates within Wholesale & Institutional Clients. This has combined with the positive market performance to significantly enhance management fees. Savings and deposits were slightly up at €10.2 billion (2020: €10.1 billion).

Sustainable investing is an important part of our strategy and we have made solid progress in this field; 17% of our own funds are classified as Article 9 (most sustainable), 62% as Article 8 and 21% as Article 6i under the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. In addition, AuM that are classified as sustainable within Private Clients rose by 24% to €3.8 billion in the past six months.

Results in the first half of 2021
Net profit increased to €58.3 million in the first six months of 2021 (H1 2020: €9.5 million). Commission income, the very core of our revenues, was up by 18% at €175.7 million (H1 2020: €148.9 million) on the back of higher recurring commissions and solid results at Corporate Finance. The higher AuM base also provides a good starting point for the rest of the year.

Interest income stabilised and amounted to €76.1 million (H1 2020: €77.0 million). During the first half of 2021, we saw this underpinned by some growth in the mortgage loan portfolio and our ability to charge negative interest rates on savings. In order to mitigate this impact for our clients, we introduced the Wealth Management Arrangement, which is meeting a need of our Private Banking clients to retain a proportion of their wealth in savings without paying negative interest.
