Outlook for 2017 updated
The assets under management of Evli’s Wealth Management and Investor Clients segment have grown significantly during the beginning of the year. As a result, the proportion of recurring revenue to operating expenses has exceeded the long-term target level of 100 percent. The risk related to the development of general equity and fixed income markets have increased with high valuation levels and a possible decline in exchange rates would negatively affect the development of the recurring revenues.
The performance of the Advisory and Corporate Clients segment has developed positively despite the lower level of activity in corporate advisory services. The return from investment activities through Evli’s own balance sheet has also grown considerably on the previous year. In the advisory business and own investment activities, substantial fluctuations in annual returns are, however, possible.
As a consequence of the success in Wealth Management operations, it is very possible that performance-based fees will arise in the final quarter of the year. As a result of this and a successful first half and steady development in assets under management, we estimate that the result for 2017 will clearly exceed that of the previous year.
