You're right stun12/skinny - I got my date mixed up this morning. Anyway - aside from current market conditions - the shareprice fall is primarily due to going XD today.

FUM marginally down by 2.5% at Q1 compared to the last fiscal year end. This was primarily due to EM & Frontier which underperformed compared to DEV and OGV which showed modest increases. Last years final dividend increase of 8% will be recommended for approval at the AGM in 2 weeks time. RNS Number : 2045D 8th October 2018 Trading Update - 1st Quarter Funds under Management (FuM) City of London (LSE: CLIG), a leading specialist asset management group offering a range of institutional products investing in closed-end funds, announces that as at 30th September 2018, FuM were US$5.0bn (£3.8bn). This compares with US$5.1bn (£3.9bn) at the Company's year-end on 30th June 2018. A breakdown by strategy follows: FuM ($mn) Strategy Index Sep-18 Jun-18 % Net % (estimate) inc/dec Flows inc/dec EM 4,016 4,207 -5% (95) MSCI EM -1% DEV 577 481 20% 98 MSCI ACWI 4% Frontier 215 245 -12% (21) MSCI Frontier -2% Opportunistic ACWI/Barclays Global Value 200 174 15% 26 Agg 2% 5,008 5,107 8 Note: Opportunistic Value includes the new Municipal Bond strategy. IM Performance IM performance was slightly behind benchmark over the quarter. Specifically, in the Emerging Market and Frontier strategies underlying NAV performance was weak (that is, the underlying closed-end fund managers underperformed their relevant benchmark indices). In the Developed strategy relative returns were impacted by widening discounts. Flows were neutral over the quarter. The EM, Frontier and Opportunistic value strategies saw rebalancing outflows which were offset by continued strong flows into the Developed strategy and the funding of a new Municipal bond mandate. Operations The Group's income currently accrues at a weighted average rate of approximately 77 basis points of FuM, net of third party commissions. "Fixed" costs are c. £1.1m per month, and accordingly the current run-rate for operating profit, before profit-share of 30% and an estimated EIP charge of 4%, is approximately £1.4m per month based upon current FuM and a US$/GBP exchange rate of US$1.3 to £1 as at 30th September 2018. The Group estimates that the post-tax profit for the first three months of the year will be approximately £2.2m (2017: £2.5m). Dividends The final dividend of 18p per share, subject to AGM approval on 22nd October 2018, will be paid on 30th October 2018, bringing the total dividend for the financial year 2017-18 to 27p (2016-17: 25p).

Nobby & Skinny I bought some more last week and the same thing happened. Still onwards and hopefully upwards and enjoy the divi. Just as an aside I was 65 last week so the State Pension started. I get £1.08 for every hour I now live! All taxable of course! However it did occur to me that if I lay in bed till 9 o'clock the government would have given me enough money to get up, go out and buy a double espresso, a copy of The Telegraph and a Full English in the local cafe!!! Kushti!

Strengthening cash position to boost returns City of London has released its annual results for 2018. As headline figures were given in the July trading statement, there are no big surprises in these results. FUM grew 9.5% in US Dollar terms over the year to $5.1bn. With Sterling strengthening relative to the US Dollar and lower fee margins, revenue growth was a little behind this at 8.4%. Total expenses grew at 8.2%, giving a net 8.9% growth in operating profit to £12.5m. EPS growth was 7.0%, lower than the 10% increase in earnings due to fewer shares being held by employee benefits schemes. ► Cash: City of London usually has excellent cash conversion. The 2018 figure of 120% was boosted by changes in working capital, notably a £1.4m increase in trade payables. The year-end cash balance of £19.7m is more than 40% up on a year ago, with suggestions that some might be returned to shareholders. ► Management and board changes: The coming year is going to see significant changes. In early 2019, Tom Griffith, who is currently Deputy CEO, will become Group CEO in advance of Barry Olliff’s retiral at the year end. David Cardale will also be stepping down as Chairman, to be replaced by Barry Aling. ► Valuation: The prospective P/E of 10.3x is at a significant discount to the peer group. The historical yield of 6.3% is attractive and should, at the very least, provide support for the shares in the current markets. ► Risks: Although emerging markets can be volatile, City of London has proved to be more robust than some other EM fund managers, aided by its good performance and strong client servicing. Further EM volatility could increase the risk of such outflows, however. ► Investment summary: Having shown robust performance in challenging market conditions, City of London is now reaping the benefits in a more supportive environment. The valuation remains reasonable. FY2017 and FY2018 both saw dividend increases and, unless there is significant market disruption, more should follow in the next few years. http://hardmanandco.com/docs/default-source/company-docs/city-of-london-investment-documents/20.09.18-strengthening-cash-position-to-boost-returns.pdf?dm_i=49CL,DD7I,VNXWR,1HSW9,1

Thanks, Skinny. I was puzzled why I missed eggs' trade. Answer is his post was from yesterday so I looked up the Trades for the 17th. Presumably, eggs, you made the trade on the 17th but it was reported as being at 10:18:33 this morning.

I use the advfn trades page for my info. I note quite a few of my trades flash up later in the day, if at all. That 5000 at 08.19 wasn't mine. Can,t remember my exact price but it was lower than 420p.

eggsetc, a trade for 5000 on the NEX market at 420p went through at 08:19:11 yesterday morning. Correct number, wrong time. Only LSE trades are reported on the 'Java' Trade page. If you change to the 'HTML5' option you will see both NEX and LSE trades. (Most private as opposed to institutional bargains appear to be done on the NEX market).

Interesting that my purchase of 5000 at 10.18 am today has not shown up on 'trades'

Another good set of results. The main risk is managing the transition of the founder. He's staying on in a consultancy role by the sounds of things. I know its a bit of a Corporate Governance "no-no" but it would be nice if he could stay as a NED. He's tried to step away before, but it didn't work out!

Strong set of results. With the dividend increase, the annual yield on Fridays closing price is 6.6% but significantly higher for LTH. :0)
