Henderson Group (HGG) - diversity sets it apart from competitors
Henderson Group (HGG) - diversity sets it apart from competitors. Vince Pezzullo, Portfolio Manager at Perpetual, says diversity by investment style, geography and portfolio managers are some of the key attractions of Henderson Group (VIEW LINK). He also highlights recent strong fund inflows, a key ingredient for revenue generating ability for these businesses. Following strong performance of Henderson's funds and improving investor sentiment, Henderson recently reported record inflows. While institutional flows were moderate, retail flows were outstanding with net £5bn in 1H14. Building momentum in the business should see retail flows continue to grow, albeit at a slower pace. Retail flows are typically of greater value to an investment manager than institutional money due to their 'stickiness' and high margins. Baillieu Holst yesterday rated Henderson as their charting Pick of the Day ((VIEW LINK). Quant Strategist Mathan Somasundaram says that the stock could be heading back towards $4.50 with tailwinds provided by potential ECB stimulus.
