The hl biz IS family owned. Its entrepreneur owned by families of Hagreaves and Landsdown. Its on the credit suisse report of family owned EU businesses. UNDERVALUED. Easily worth 10b

Not sure I would give the ambulance chasers the time of day, or indeed any airtime. The claims are without merit.

I suspect the market was hoping for some comment about the pending litigation/s. By ignoring it and refusing to comment it's holding the share price back. If they are confident the claims are without merit then why not say so?

After such a good trading update, I think there are genuine jitters about more share sales by Co-Founder directors. It's a logical chain of thought but volume the of shares traded in the market looks modest so I would anticipate a steady return to trend unless those sales suddenly reappear.

IC today: Hargreaves Lansdown achieves record growth Hargreaves Lansdown reports strong results but shares drop on the news Hargreaves Lansdown’s (HL.) revenues surged by a fifth year-on-year for the first four months of 2021, amid a rush of international share dealing and a record number of new clients. 126,000 customers joined the FTSE 100 broker for the year to 30 April, growing its total client base to 1.62m. Assets under administration of £132.9bn represent a 28 per cent increase for the year to date. The key driver of growth over the period was record dealing volumes in international markets, as UK investors rushed to buy US stocks, including Gamestop, in late January. Total share deals for the period were 6m, up from 4m in 2020. Individual savings accounts and Self invested personal pensions have also been key areas for growth. From 12 February to 5 April, during the firm’s tax year end campaign, new money into Isa and Sipp accounts was 48 per cent higher than in the same period last year. The results come off the back of a surge in marketing and distribution spend, which increased by 75 per cent (£4.5m) in the first half of its 2021 financial year and included a national television campaign to "Switch your money ON". Hargreaves had upgraded its profit expectations in mid-March following the rise in US share dealings. But shares were down 5 per cent on release of the update. Chief executive Chris Hill struck a positive outlook for the year ahead but warned that client servicing costs will rise and dealing volumes have lowered from their peak in the first quarter. Where dealing volumes settle as we come out of lockdown is unclear. Our own testing has also found that Hargreaves has struggled to maintain its market-leading service levels amid customer growth. Hill says “Conditions look more positive than they did at the end of December. However, there remains much uncertainty and like many businesses, we cannot predict levels of new business or client activity.” “We remain confident in our strategy of focusing on the needs of UK investors and savers and delivering the highest level of client service, which should position us to deliver attractive sustainable long-term growth as the UK's leading digital wealth manager.” Buy at 1,676p.

micha14, HL is not family owned... Peter K and Steve L are not in the same family, and even if they were their combined total is well under 50% now! You're right about the amazing profit growth over 5 years (and indeed 10+ years) and yet the share price is still much lower than it was 2 or 3 years ago.

Outstanding update. Revenue ytd up 19pc and client Ns up 15pc. Fantastic. In the last 5yrs operating profit compounded at 11.3pc so post covid i see acceleration of growth say to 12pc(conservatively). Well, if free cash flow yield is 3.3pc and growth is circa 12pc you have a 15pc compounder. Btw- this is most profitable family owned company in Europe FFS

HL, never fails to disappoint. Back to usual trading range by the looks of it. Cant seem to hold above 1700 bit like ftse cant hold 7000 ( abysmal.) Wonder whether city sees a lot of these numbers as more one offs due to covid and whether that will unwind or just whether we are looking at tanking markets on US inflation which will crush AUM, either way none of it looks great, too much stimulus and not targeted, look at UK still with almost a million still on furlough, utter madness, the one thing none of these economies need, especially shot to pieces brexit U.K., is inflation issues. Great pity this is “ family owned “, the endless drip drip onto markets of those two fossils of their shares is what keeps a lid on these.

Yes, although with markets down generally it's not surprising to see the shares drop. Also embarrassingly the trading update is yet to show on this screen on HL's own website... despite being released at 7:01 hTTps://www.hl.co.uk/shares/shares-search-results/h/hargreaves-lansdown-plc-ordinary-0.4p

Yes, it's been a good trade between £15 and £17, but boy we've had to be patient! Question is will it keep going up now that it's over £17 or drop back again?

@ Lomax, Omfg if that imbecile Questor at that brexit rag the telegraph is punting HL we are doomed, this is the same cretin who thought Patient Capital and Aston Martin were a buy haha. I bought into these when they were in the low 15’s again, seem a trade between there and high 16’s where they start to get a nosebleed. Need those fossil owners to sell out in one go and remove the overhang and also dump their poverty 50 list.

Telegraph today:Questor: Hargreaves is the investment platform to buy as the Neil Woodford effect lingersQuestor share tip: rivals AJ Bell and IntegraFin are great businesses too but their shares are more highly valuedHargreaves Lansdown's shareholders cared more about its involvement with Neil Woodford than its customers did, it seems.Shares in the investment shop stand 27pc below their level just before the suspension of the Woodford Equity Income fund in June 2019, while shares in rival firms AJ Bell and IntegraFin have risen by 10pc and 39pc respectively. But Hargreaves still managed to attract 220,000 new customers last year to take its total to 1.4m.Despite this vote of confidence by the people who matter, investors' apparent anxiety about the Woodford connection has meant that readers who followed Questor's advice to buy Hargreaves shares in January 2017 have made only a modest 24pc, whereas IntegraFin has gained 82pc since our tip in December 2018 while AJ Bell's shares have risen almost threefold over the same period, annoyingly for this column in view of our decision to bank a quick 50pc profit just weeks after our "buy" advice.We did so on the grounds of valuation, although these three companies fall into the enviable category of businesses that can grow sustainably with minimal need for capital and at very high profit margins. This is a potent mix that offers the opportunity for long-term compounding of returns – and there is no better way for patient readers of this column to grow rich. It also means that, within reason, a high multiple of earnings is no reason to avoid the shares.The key attribute of these businesses is that their revenues can grow while their costs remain broadly fixed. Once they have built the platform that allows customers to trade and hold shares and funds, their costs are little more than those of running a call centre.Meanwhile, there are several avenues to rapid growth. These firms make a percentage of the value of the assets that their customers own on their platforms, so signing up more customers, more investment from existing ones and investment growth when markets rise all contribute.There is every reason to expect more customers to sign up. With each year that passes, fewer workers benefit from final salary pension schemes and are forced to save for their own future. Many existing customers naturally pay in more money to their Isas and pensions on these platforms every year, while fewer cash in their pensions in their entirety for annuities following the introduction of the pension freedoms in 2015.America is ahead of Britain in this respect and gives some idea of the scope for growth in personal investment here."About 3m DIY savers invest via platforms in Britain now, whereas in America Charles Schwab has 30m and Fidelity something similar," said Ben Needham of Ninety One, who owns stakes in Hargreaves and AJ Bell in his UK Equity Income fund, while other funds run by his firm invest in IntegraFin."Probably one in five or six Americans invest, whereas here it is one in 20. So there is evidence that the market in the UK is only in its embryonic stages."Platforms can also make money from share dealing commission and from new lines of business such as "active savings" services, which allow customers to move money from one bank to another in search of higher interest rates with the same ease with which they can switch from one fund to another.Share dealing and the savings services both offer ways to attract new, younger customers – customers who will often in time invest in Isas and pensions and start to accumulate large sums.The three firms, two of which, AJ Bell and IntegraFin, update on trading next week, have different mixes of clients. Hargreaves concentrates on individuals who look after their own money while IntegraFin services financial advisers; AJ Bell does both.AJ Bell's shares are most highly valued at a forecast price-to-earnings ratio in the low 40s. Hargreaves is in the high 20s and IntegraFin is in between. AJ Bell's rating reflects greater growth prospects both for the assets it looks after and for its profit margins.Although we sold far too early we don't see a compelling reason to go back into the stock at a much higher price; IntegraFin is a hold but for new money our pick is Hargreaves, whose shares still seem unfairly punished by the lingering association in investors' minds with Mr Woodford.Questor says: buy Hargreaves Lansdown, hold IntegraFinTicker: HL., IHPShare price at close: £16.59, 540p------It's a shame that they do not include a comparison of Gross Margins.......
