Van Lanschot Kempen 2022 results

Maarten Edixhoven, Chair of the Management Board, said: “We are looking back on an eventful year in which the war in Ukraine, energy insecurity and inflation left marks on society at large and our clients. Negative market performances in virtually all asset classes left no investor untouched. We nevertheless achieved high net inflows in assets under management (AuM) and increased savings. I’m grateful to our clients for their confidence in us and would also like to thank my colleagues for their personal and entrepreneurial approach in the past year, helping our clients in these turbulent times.

“In 2022, we enhanced our financial and sustainability objectives as well as our capital strategy. Profitable growth, both organically and via acquisitions, remains our focus, while maintaining a capital-light balance sheet. We’re proud to have added two major Dutch clients to our fiduciary management activities and shortly before year-end we announced the acquisition of the remaining 30% stake in Mercier Vanderlinden, a further strengthening of our position in Belgium. As part of this transaction, Mercier Vanderlinden’s managing partners will obtain a significant stake in Van Lanschot Kempen, anchoring our shareholder base in our second home market.

“What really pleases me is that over 70% of our colleagues now hold shares in Van Lanschot Kempen, a clear sign of their engagement. I’m also proud that we’ve managed to retain and attract talent in a tight labour market. And on that note, I consider the addition of the Robeco Retail Nederland team to Evi van Lanschot a real boon. On 2 February 2023, we announced that we would enter into a strategic partnership with Robeco and acquire their online investment platform with €4.7 billion in AuM. We look forward to a great partnership and expect to complete the transaction in June 2023.”

In short:

  • Net profit €84.3 million (2021: €143.8 million), decline partly related to one-off charge related to the accelerated acquisition of the remaining 30%-stake in Mercier Vanderlinden
  • Commission income and interest income both increased by 6%
  • Net AuM inflows at Private Clients: €2.0 billion; Wholesale & Institutional Clients: €11.6 billion
  • Client assets: €124.2 billion (2021: €131.2 billion) and AuM: €107.8 billion (2021: €115.6 billion)
  • Strong capital ratio of 20.6% (2021: 23.7%), decrease attributable to higher capital requirements for residential mortgage loans and a €1.50 per share capital return in December 2022
  • 2022 dividend proposed at €1.75 per share (2021: €2.00 per share)
  • Intention to return excess capital of €2.00 per share in the second half of 2023, subject to regulatory approval
