Trading update here this week, I understand. Will be interesting to hear if the Private Wealth Management division has suffered funds withdrawals after the negative publicity of a few months ago. Recent market volatility can't have been helpful either. Pretty concerning that Rupert Lowe left so suddenly too. I did speak to the company about that and was told that they had nothing to add over and above what was stated in the RNS. There has to be the suspicion that he fell out with the CEO over something, but who knows.

Just looking back at the terms on which Killingbeck jointly owns 1,000,000 shares with the ESOT. The relevant RNS was in October 2013. Key points are: RK has an option to acquire the ESOT's interest in the shares at a maximum price of 74.5p per share at any time between October 2016 and October 2023. The price he has to pay is subject to a formula based on the total return to shareholders over a 3 year period. It is dependent on the mid-market price on 28 October 2016 plus the aggregate dividends paid in the preceding 3 years. If that total is less than or equal to GBP1.15, the price is 74.5p; if it's 200p or more, the price will be nil. There's a sliding scale between those amounts. In other words, RK has a strong incentive to get the share price to 200p within the next year or so.

Yes, or at least it seems that way!

Yes very good advice to your sons. I think the issue here is that this man is 78 years old. I've never subscribed to a risk averse policy for aging investors ie out of equities into fixed income. But in this case he should have been put into larger cap/high yield equities. He may well have filled in a form giving WHI carte blanche to invest on his behalf but the manager should have taken some view of his age/needs.

Two sides to every story? If you let somebody loose £500,000 you are totally barmy, so don't complain when it's gone, try taking a closer interest. My simple instruction to my 3 adult sons is 'look after your own money'

Don't like that. Apart from appalling incompetence in mishandling a clients funds, it doesn't sound as if RK is handling the publicity it's generating very well. Now TW has got his teeth into it too.

Just found this link to the research note in full - I don't know if it will work or not. hTTp://www.equitydevelopment.co.uk/doc/1374.pdf

I am in possession of a research note, written by Gilbert Ellacombe of Equity Development on 20th July 2015. Unfortunately I am unable to post this full report, as it is pdf format which I cannot post a link for. It is a lengthy and detailed document - far too much to post in one go, so I post a brief extract below. "We continue to believe that WHI is undervalued: the more-than-doubling of interim profits in a difficult environment hints at the potential improvement to come. A standard sum of parts valuation (4% of Disc, 2% of Adv and 0.5% of XO AUM plus surplus cash and equity in the Head Office building) comes to £61m, modestly up from the £60m as at end-November, and equivalent t0 249p/share, over double the current price. One could reduce that to 177p, a mere 50-odd% uplift by using a more conservative basis and applying a 10% conglomerate discount."

A good write up. However, it misses 2 key points in the investment case, both of which relate to valuation: On a sum-of-parts calculation, WHI is worth well north of 200p per share; on an earnings basis, while cost/scale is still washing out on the corporate broking side (as the article notes), on the wealth management side, there is still considerable scope to boost revenue (based on comparative figures from other wealth managers) within necessarily increasing AUM (which of course will help!). So the EPS is still depressed relative to the true potential of the business. WHI remains one of my larger holdings for this reason, and the two hedge funds on board increase the chance that value will out at some point sooner rather than later.

I don't think the market has really noticed this one yet - already paying a small divi, well funded, high quality shareholder support, and good steady growth prospects in an expanding sector from a BOD with a proven track record and clear strategy forward.

Please see below copied from LSE courtesy of Bazzaman. I am this week returning to the sector for the weekly column, with a look at WH IRELAND. A familiar name within stockbroking and coverage of quoted companies at the smaller cap end, there is actually more to the business than many are perhaps aware of. In penning the piece for tomorrow, I was fortunate enough to speak with the CEO Richard Killingbeck, who filled me in on some of the background and strategy for taking the business forward. WH Ireland has, despite failing to make much of an impact on the profit front in previous years, seemingly a fair bit going for it which takes in a significant and growing position in small-cap brokering services. Additionally, the balance sheet is sound, while there appears to have been a firm strategy put in place for increasing prospects across the board, which may bode well for the future years. Although Theodore Agnew raised a few eyebrows last week in selling off his entire 3.6% stake, holders of the stock should not be too concerned, as his other extensive interests would appear to have been a main driver of the action. Additionally, the shares soon found a good home, being placed with WH Ireland’s two major holders Polygon and Oceanwood Capital who in both picking up stock have also been joined by the respected Miton, which has taken an initial first stake in the company. Any subsequent buying from the executive Directors of Ireland may also be perceived as a positive sign for the business, which is now eying ongoing improvement across the board. The article should appear sometime from late morning for those interested in taking a look, via the usual link. hTTp://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/business/private-punter
