diviincomesearch: Most of the AuM update is baked in with the factsheet and the spike we had last month. I was expecting performance fees to be higher. Appreciate there is an incentive scheme for managers. I wonder if that is only the crystallised fees, as the Technology trust has almost 10p per share of performance fees that are uncrystallised and will remain so until 31st March shares in issue 137mn, so another £13.7mn in performance fees less costs. EPS full year- something in the region of 60p?
riverman77: Still chance to get in before market wakes up to this superb update. Liontrust shot up yesterday, and these results are at least as good as those (POLR also a lot cheaper and in my view has better funds, so I know where I'd put my money right now).

davidosh: Just to mention that the Xmas special MelloMonday BASH will feature Polar Capital on the 14th December and I think shareholders and potential investors will appreciate the analysis. There is also an interview with Keith Ashworth Lord who is a highly respected fund manager and well worth listening to. The Mello Monday event starts at 6pm The full programme is available on the website. In the MelloBASH... The analysts, fund manager and well known investors on the panel will give their honest verdicts on whether four/five companies are a Buy Avoid Sell or Hold at this current juncture in the markets. All investors welcome and if you use the code MMTADVFN50 you will get a half price ticket. Great investor content and entertainment. We had nearly 400 investors attend last month so these are very popular.
zho: Hi there >>Share price popping after AuM updates.>> The last figure I've seen for AuM was £16.4 billion at 30/9/20. Has there been a more recent update?
diviincomesearch: Share price popping after AuM updates. Looks like £1.25bn add on roughly excluding ITs growth. EM stars growing steadily, automation and artificial intelligence too. Should be some performance fees accruing end of year too. Fingers crossed for a Santa rally to bring us to the end of the year- if it carries on should be a strong finish- performance fees from the tech funds particularly. Long overdue recognition of this company being at a knockdown price.
lomax99: IC comment Polar Capital managing capacity Active fund manager posts rise in profits and dividend Fifty-five per cent of all assets now in the tech fund Three jobs stick out of Gavin Rochussen’s in-tray. After a run of good fund performance, the Polar Capital (POLR) chief executive needs to maintain a collegiate culture eight months into a pandemic, reduce the proportional weighting to technology stocks, and find a way to expand distribution. The first challenge was less of an issue in the spring, when Mr Rochussen’s teams handled the novelty with ease. But long and irregular hours to meet client demand take their toll eventually. “I’ve definitely noticed lockdown fatigue,” he acknowledges. The second task has grown alongside the run in tech stocks since March. Assets in the sector swelled from £5.3bn to £9.1bn in the half-year to September, and now make up 55 per cent of all funds managed. A soft-close of the Global Technology Fund – only existing unit holders can top up – should help. “The key for me is to grow the others,” notes the CEO. Ideally, this needs to happen with an expanding distribution network, especially after revenues dipped 3.5 per cent in the period once gains on seed investments are excluded. A push into the US might be the answer. In two to four years’ time Mr Rochussen hopes assets could grow here by “a couple of billion dollars”, market conditions pending. Analysts think profit growth is viable from here. FactSet-compiled consensus forecasts show earnings of 51.4p per share for the full-year to March, rising to 53p in FY2022. The shares have delivered a total return of 9 per cent since our initial tip (612p, 20 Sep 2018). That’s scant reward for the quality of the Polar fund brand and focus on booming sectors, but a 21 per cent premium to the FTSE All-Share nonetheless. Despite growth in the dividend, cover still looks healthy, so we stand by our income-themed call. Buy.
zho: Analyst Paul McGinnis retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and increased his ‘fair value’ target price from 660p to 750p. The asset manager last reported a ‘second consecutive strong quarter’ with assets under management rising 7%, or £1.1bn, to £16.4bn. ‘We think asset manager business models with track records of generating material performance fees - like Polar, and also Man Group - are structurally undervalued by investors, who benefit from material capital returns via dividends and/or buybacks,’ said McGinnis. ‘We raise our fair value... to 750p, circa 40% upside, at which level Polar would still only be trading on 14 times March 2021 earnings per share and prospective dividend yield of 4.4%.’
