Agreed, LG. Quality business. Interested on their commentary on the general outlook for markets which will doubtless impact them too but they are confident that they will outperform relative to most due to their diverse structure/solutions. Trading Statement - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/rivr--38-merctl-grp-plc--riv-/rns/trading-statement/201810310700037633F/ "While we saw some positive equity returns during the quarter, more notable is the significant losses seen in equity markets since the quarter end. We have been advising clients to prepare for a downturn, and it would appear this is at least to some degree upon us. This ability to guide clients on what conditions to expect is central to our strategy as a firm. The current weakness in markets will clearly impact absolute returns from our Equities division, however the Group is highly diversified and therefore the effect on our overall numbers will likely be more muted than it is for others. We are also well positioned to support our clients during these market conditions, given our ability to offer strategies that seek to manage these risks and even profit from them..."

Trading Statement (30/7/18) - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/rivr--38-merctl-grp-plc--riv-/rns/trading-statement/201807300700060780W/ Highlights for the three months ended 30 June 2018: · Fee earning AUM/NUM increased by 2.7% to £33.8bn. · Net inflows for the quarter were £0.6bn, equivalent to 1.8% of opening AUM/NUM. · Sales for the period were £1.1bn, including £0.4bn of new structured equity derivatives. · Redemptions in the period were £0.5bn, including £0.1bn of maturing structured equity derivatives. · Investment performance added £0.3bn and was positive across all divisions. Highlights for the 12 months ended 30 June 2018: · Fee earning AUM/NUM increased by 9.0% in the year to £33.8bn. · Net inflows for the 12 months were £2.1bn, equivalent to 6.8% of opening AUM/NUM. · Sales for the period were £5.7bn, including £3.9bn from Derivative Solutions and £1.3bn from Equity Solutions. · Redemptions in the period were £4.6bn, including £1.5bn of maturing structured equity derivatives from a single client which had met its investment objectives. · Investment performance generated £0.7bn and was positive across all divisions. Mike Faulkner, CEO of River and Mercantile, said: "During the quarter we experienced solid growth during a period of financial market volatility. Derivative Solutions performed particularly well delivering strong flows in the period. Fiduciary Management and Equity Solutions experienced tougher conditions with respect to flows, but investment performance in these areas supported overall AUM growth. This demonstrates again the benefit of how the diversified nature of our business lines produces stable growth. Our progress during the twelve months and our strong pipeline means that we end our financial year well positioned to continue our revenue growth in line with our strategic objectives. The long term investment performance of our funds and mandates1 remains above benchmark. As a result of investment in people during the year we anticipate that our remuneration ratio on underlying revenue will be approximately 54% for the year, representing around 52% of ongoing underlying revenue and 2% for investment initiatives. We have continued to expand our distribution and client engagement capabilities, most recently in New York and Australia, to help drive growth in our business in addition to the existing pipeline. We continue to invest in our research and development activities, in particular in solutions that can deliver scalable investment capacity, for example global macro and emerging markets."

At first sight RIV shares look very cheap compared with those (for example) of IPX. RIV has a combined AUM/NUM of £33.8 billion and a market cap of £218 million whereas IPX has AUM of £11bn and a Mkt cap of £264m. I refer to IPX as this has proved one of my best investments over the last 2 years and seems a very well run company. Its funds have done well and attracted new investors. A crucial factor, however, is the high proportion of RIV's profits that are taken directly by its directors (as mentioned by other contributors here). Directors' fees with bonuses etc seem to be about double the dividends that are paid to shareholders. Even so, the yield is generous if it can be maintained. On balance I am inclined to buy some RIV shares but shall wait rather nervously until I feel more confident about world stock markets as a whole. There may be some turbulence ahead.

Trading Statement - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/rivr--38-merctl-grp-plc--riv-/rns/trading-statement/201807060700047869T/ FCA competition matter The Group has reduced the amounts recognised in respect of the FCA competition matter to a provision of £109,000, from a provision of £1 million1. The Group received guidance from the FCA on the likely quantum of penalty should one be imposed. The provision has been adjusted to reflect this guidance. Mike Faulkner, CEO of River and Mercantile, said: "The Group continues to co-operate fully with the FCA in this complex matter and we will provide further updates when the FCA reaches its final decision in due course." Update on trading Highlights for the two months ended 31 May 2018: · Fee earning AUM/NUM increased by 2% to £33.8bn. · Sales for the period were £0.8bn. · Redemptions in the period were £0.4bn, including £0.1bn of maturing structured equity transactions, and £127m and £82m from the UK Smaller Companies Fund and the UK Dynamic Fund, respectively. · Investment performance added £0.4bn and was positive across all divisions. Highlights for the 11 months ended 31 May 2018: · Fee earning AUM/NUM increased by 9% to £33.8bn. · Sales for the period were £5.4bn, including £1.2bn from Equity Solutions and £3.7bn from Derivative Solutions. · Redemptions in the period were £4.5bn, including £1.5bn of maturing structured equity transactions from a single client which had met its objectives. · Net inflows for the 11 months were £2.0bn, equivalent to 6% of opening AUM/NUM. · Investment performance generated £0.7bn and was positive across all divisions. The Group's 12 month trading update will be published on 30 July 2018. Mike Faulkner, CEO of River and Mercantile, said: "The business continues to perform well. Flows and our forward pipeline - in particular in Equities, Derivatives and new investment strategy development - remain strong. Fiduciary Management and Advisory growth has been slower, however this is in line with the expectations and guidance that we have historically provided to the market given the stage of the cycle and the strong equity market rallies that we have seen over the last 12 months. The long term investment performance of our funds and mandates2 remains above benchmark. As outlined in my CEO Statement in last year's Annual Report, our business has a range of complementary strategies, from advisory, asset allocation, equities and derivative strategies which allows us to be relevant to our clients through providing investment solutions across all phases of the market. We currently consider that we are in a downturn phase of risk markets and therefore have been advising clients to adopt more defensive positions. As a result we expect to see continued interest in structured equity strategies, along with our absolute return strategies, which include Global Macro. We recently publicised the expansion of our distribution and client management capabilities through hiring senior individuals and the opening of new offices in both New York and Australia. Our New York office will complement our existing and growing presence in the market with offices in Boston, Chicago and Denver. We will continue to build our global presence in markets where we see client need for our proven approach in engaging with sophisticated investors and our ability to design investment solutions to meet their specific needs. We are excited by the outlook and the opportunities that exist. We continue to be well positioned to grow the business in line with the guidance given to the market."

Financials seem to be under pressure recently including those with loose association. I have BARC, LLOY, ARW and RFX and they have all suffered over the last few days for no apparent reason other than the usual and ongoing Brexit and interest rate uncertainties. I am also looking to get into RIV but will wait for the dust to settle.
