|Pete, there has been a net outflow on GARS, have not listened to the
conference call and Q&A yet, so just have the total FUM figure which is
in the report.
GARS makes a very easy angle for journalists to highlight,
so find many articles miss the wider business potential.
As mentioned hoping for lower levels to add.|
|Is it increasing or decreasing?
This is what the brokers bang on about.|
|GARS is approx £47 Billion of £357 Billion FUM.|
|The funds return is a big worry !!
While overall assets under management rose 16pc to £357.1bn in the year to the end of December, Standard Life’s Global Asset Return Strategies (GARS) fund suffered a £4.3bn “outflow”; - people withdrawing their money.

The fund has returned only 0.4pc over the past year, a fraction of the sector’s average, after positions it took went awry.|
|A Monday dip would be most welcome to add.|
|The numbers look broadly ok to me although the eps numbers for 2016 v 2015 are not strictly comparable. The dividend increase is probably the best guide to future performance. Responsible Boards don't usually increase them unless they are reasonably satisfied on future earnings growth.|
|Yeah, they overlook the 50bn increase in assets under management and big rise in eps
The Gars fund will probably be split up as it's so large. However, the fund fortunes are likely to change as these things broadly even out over time.
The 8% rise in divi is excellent and shows confidence.|
|The market reacted to the GARS net outflow and it's recent poor relative
performance, the City scribblers have an obsession with GARS.
It's just one piece of a growing business.|
|Looks solid to me in terms of results.
As most of us are aware fat share price moves in either direction are pretty routine with SL.|
|Well it's dipping!|
|Good results and increase in divi..... will be holding all mine and will look to add on any dips,|
|And many rate it outperform and Buy not that you should take a blind bit of notice of broker recommendations
The results were better than expected and a nice increase in divi , one of the best in the ftse.|
|Davros not trying to second guess but you are right it's a dangerous game. Capita rates standard life underperform.|
|Dangerous game second guessing where the market is going IMO. I have my stop level and min profit target and otherwise then that I try and take my brain out. Always a bit risky holding into results but RNS was pretty solid so holding up pretty well on an otherwise soggy day|
|Started selling these, Ftse 100 as peaked imho volatile times are ahead careful stock picking is needed good luck|
|Well it's successfully taken out stops nearby on either side and now breaking back into +ve territory so hopefully we will be ok from here...|
Standard Life’s investors should be encouraged by today’s results. I feel it is making progress in becoming an improved investment company. It is doing so at a time when investment markets are volatile and uncertain. Its focus on diversification through the investment in Elevate and the increase in its stake in HDFC Life could also increase its long-term growth prospects in my opinion.|
|Party's Over !|
|So we are all selling then?|
|Normally SL would buck a falling FTSE and rise into its ex dividend date but it didn't at either last full or interim.|
|FTSE100 is weakening !|
|Got to break 400 before ex divi haven't they?|
|Up From Here !|
