Half Year Trading Update

Notice of results


WH Ireland today issues a trading update for its half year ended 31 May 2015.  Overall WH Ireland has performed well in the first half, with an improved performance compared to last year .

The Private Wealth Management division has continued to grow its asset base and at the end of the trading period, total assets under management and administration had risen to £2.8 billion (30 November 2014: £2.7bn). Of this total, discretionary assets have risen to in excess of £800 million (30 November 2014: £700m). Management fee income, reflecting this ongoing improvement to our asset mix, has grown significantly when compared with the same period a year ago.

The Corporate Broking division has continued to grow its corporate client base. At the half year, it was retained by 98 corporate clients (92 for the comparable period a year ago) and as a consequence, its recurring retainer fee income has continued to increase. Success fees are above those achieved last year, although market making, whilst positive, is lower than the same period a year ago. 

It is anticipated that the half year results will be released on Monday, 20th July, 2015.

Richard Killingbeck, Chief Executive, said:

“Both our divisions have had good half years, with strong progress in their respective key metrics: increased discretionary funds under management in Private Wealth Management and increased numbers of clients in Corporate Broking.  We look forward to making further progress in the balance of the year.”
