“The results achieved reflect the current situation and meet our expectations. We’re working purposefully with the assets under management and the opportunities that appear in the market. Larger fluctuations in results are usually due to significant transactions or other changes which, unlike in 2015, we haven’t had this year,” said Darius Šulnis, the president of Invalda INVL.
Asset management business
Invalda INVL’s asset management companies INVL Asset Management in Lithuanian and Latvia, the wealth-management financial brokerage firm INVL Finasta, and the administrative company INVL Farmland Management had assets under management of EUR 449 million at the end of September this year, or 36.8% more than at the end of 2015 (EUR 328.2 million). The number of clients increased by 4.3% during nine months of this year to 173,800.
Due to investments in expansion, the asset management business had a nine-month pre-tax loss of EUR 183 thousand. Revenue from this business increased by 36.7% during the same period, to EUR 3.4 million.
“The period was successful for most of the clients who chose Invalda INVL group companies’ investment products. In terms of the return earned for investors, the vast majority of our pension and mutual funds are among the leaders. That’s attracting new clients and significantly boosting assets under management,” Šulnis said.
Investments in related companies

This investment had a gain of EUR 0.5 million in the first nine months of the year (including dividends). In March 2016, INVL Baltic Real Estate completed a 9 million-euro offering of new shares in which Invalda INVL acquired shares for EUR 6.2 million.

“The overall impact of investments in related companies on results for the three quarters was neutral,” Šulnis said.
The value of Invalda INVL’s investments in the Baltic agribusiness company Litagra, in which it has a 36.9% stake, was EUR 14 million at the end of September 2016. A decrease in the value of the stake meant a loss of EUR 0.9 million was sustained in nine months of the year.
“Litagra’s valuation was negatively influenced by results in the primary agricultural production sector, while the trading business has shown improving performance,” Šulnis said.
Invalda INVL holds a 6.79% equity stake in Šiaulių Bankas, the value of which increased by EUR 2.7 million in January-September to EUR 9.1 million. “Šiaulių Bankas’s good results also boosted the price of its shares on the exchange,” Šulnis said.
