Solid trading update this morning. Share price supported by good earnings growth and 3% dividend. I still believe that IFG will be an attractive takeover target within the next 12 months.

Read Edison's note on IFG GROUP, out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/IE0002325243 "IFG’s focus on core businesses and its investment for franchise growth clearly showed results in 2015 with growth in clients, assets and revenues, as well as meaningful profit growth. James Hay appears to have reached an inflexion point where the benefits of past investment were clearly seen in margin expansion and strong revenue growth. IFG is well positioned for further progress, supported by a strong and liquid balance sheet, in markets that offer good long-term growth potential and consolidation opportunities. We have increased our estimates and fair value..."

It can't be too long before IFG are bought over as part of consolidation in the pension/wealth management industry.

Nothing but good news coming from this company, but still the share price is in limbo. SIPP bolt-on to boost growth DAVY VIEW Reports suggests that the addition of Capita's SIPP book and related assets under administration (AUA) would take James Hay's pro-forma SIPPs and AUA to 43,251 (+6%) and over £16.6bn (+6%) respectively at the end of April 2014. Although IFG's growth strategy for James Hay is primarily organically focussed, it continues to look at opportunities to augment growth through selective bolt-on initiatives and acquisitions. Bolt-on to add circa £1bn AUA Capita had announced in its IMS last November that it had taken a decision to close its SIPP administration business based in Salisbury , where James Hay is also headquartered, as it was sub-scale and therefore unviable. Reports suggest that the book consists of 2,500 SIPPs with related AUA of circa £1bn. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed. James Hay typically generates circa £800 revenues per SIPP from year-two onwards. Assuming a similar metric would imply additional revenues of around £2m a year at James Hay in a full year (completion is scheduled for Q1 2015). James Hay reported revenues of £37m in 2013. Recent figures from Platforum ranked Jame s Hay fifth alongside Transact in a league table of advised platforms (led by Cofund s with AUA of £65.6bn and FundsNetwork with £48.7bn) with AUA of £15.64bn at the end of March. This bolt-on closes the gap with fourth-placed Standard Life (AUA of £20.3bn at end-March). IFG Group OUTPERFORM Closing price:135p

Strange how this is a growth stock, worth well over 2 quid and paying 4% dividend and trading at least 25% below it's nav. I read where Goodbody have kept their target as us because of the ongoing investment in ne technology..... Very odd.

DAVY VIEW IFG has announced the appointment of Paul McNamara as its new CEO. Currently Managing Director of Investments and Insurance at Barclays, McNamara has significant experience working in the financial services industry. He will join IFG on July 28th. AGM is on May 7th IFG has announced the appointment of Paul McNamara as its new CEO. An actuary by profession, McNamara previously held senior roles at Standard Life Group, HBOS (Lloyds), AXA UK, McKinsey and Bank of Ireland. During 2013, IFG embarked on a four-year strategic plan to substantially increase its investment in the business (in people, technology and operational capability) with a view to positioning James Hay (JH) to become a market leader in scale, product offering and client service in the UK platform arena. Market growth estimates have been increased significantly in the aftermath of the recent UK budget, and a broadening of JH's product range – to offer a Modular ISA and a Modular GIA – leaves it better placed to compete as a broader retirement wealth planning operator. The group is likely to provide a brief update at its AGM on May 7th.

Davy from neutral to outperform. 5 Davy Research Broader modular offering enhances prospects DAVY VIEW SIPPs are set to remain at the core of the platform of IFG's key subsidiary, James Hay. However, the expansion of its product range to offer a Modular ISA and a Modular GIA positions it as a broader retirement wealth planning operator at a time when platform market growth estimates have been raised significantly in view of the recent budget measures. Investment spend will continue, but an element of frontloading kept a lid on earnings in 2013 and paves the way for a rebound in 2014/2015. While leaving our estimates broadly intact at this juncture, we are raising our rating to 'Outperform'.

DAVY VIEW The key results focus will be on business momentum in IFG's core UK franchises against the backdrop of the significant investment the group has undertaken at its SIPP subsidiary, James Hay. In addition, investors will be keen to hear how the group is positioned to take advantage of the new flexible pensions and improved ISA regimes proposed by the Chancellor in his recent budget, with platform specialists Platforum predicting that both advised and non-advised platforms are set to win big from the new measures.

Goodbody Morning Wrap 21 Mar. 14 IFG Group Focus on continued momentum IFG is due to release FY13 results on March 27. The company indicated in its November IMS that trends of the first half had continued. For H113, it reported adjusted EPS of 3.55p EPS and for FY13 we are forecasting 7.2p (8.6p on a Goodbody adjusted basis), from revenues of £77.3m and EBIT of £6m. We expect a net cash figure of £25m and DPS to remain unchanged at 3.6p. IFGs most recent IMS indicated it achieved its annual SIPP target 12 months ahead of schedule, Saunderson House client wins increased by 50% and it recently announced the disposal of some of its non core assets. Much of this performance will have been offset by continued investment, particularly in key managerial positions, although the vacancy for departing CEO Mark Bourke is yet to be filled. Pricing in the D2C SIPP market remains under pressure and we will be looking for evidence pricing at James Hay remains steady. Further, we expect continued momentum in the SIPP business and evidence Saunderson House has continued its strong performance into 2014. IFG Group is trading on 12x FY15 PE compared to 14x for its closest peers. Given similar growth rates, this looks overly punitive. We value IFG on 14x FY15 PE which generates a price target of €2.05. We remain positive on IFG and expect to see cash accumulate over the forecast period following a period of significant investment, which should lead to further returns to shareholders. BUY

Shareholders like me I suppose have to be grateful that the analysts have now consolidated the share price at 150, but one can't help being cynical at the contruved manner in which the rerating was arrived at, having to be wrangled by the shorts and curlies up from 110 area by a phantom bidder, who was never named...

In a statement, the Dublin-headquartered company said it has sold IFG Financial Services to Ascot Lloyd for £3.5 million in cash, which could potentially rise by a further £2.1 million if certain revenue targets are met.

See article below from yesterday's Sunday Business Post - helps to explain a little about what has been happening to the various shareholdings in IFG. Not sure I understand where it is all leading to but I hope that this helps fellow investors. 03:55, 19 January 2014 by Jon Ihle The investor who led a transformative recapitalisation of financial services group IFG has begun selling down his stake after a flurry of recent corporate activity at the company, including a takeover approach and the departure of its chief executive. Edmund Truell, the British financier and entrepreneur behind Fiordland Investments, the syndicate that backed IFG's acquisition of James Hay Group in 2010, reduced his personal shareholding in the company this month from 7.57 per cent to 6.98 per cent, realising more than €1 million. The move, which occurred in a series of transactions running from January 3 to January 10, happened as stock market disclosures revealed that the Fiordland partnership broke up just before Christmas when IFG was the subject of a speculative approach from an unknown acquirer. The dissolution of Fiordland means its original investors, including chairman John Gallagher, are free to buy or sell their shares without the agreement of the other partners. That development could prove significant if another potential buyer emerges for IFG, as Fiordland had a 19 per cent stake and exerted considerable influence over the board. Gallagher owns 6.28 per cent of IFG through his investment vehicle, Crownway. Truell's stake is held under Rockhopper Investments, while Laggan Investment s owns the remainder of the original Fiordland holding.
