billion in AuM. Client assets increase to €103.4 billion
(2019: €102.0 billion)
- Good underlying operating performance, notwithstanding
incidental items in Q1 due to Covid-19

provisions of €1.3 million
- Robust capital ratio at 24.0%
- Successful next step in growth strategy: acquisition of
Hof Hoorneman Bankiers, bringing in client assets of €1.9
Van Lanschot Kempen today published its 2020 half-year figures.
Karl Guha, Chairman, said: “Covid-19 has been a defining factor for
the first half of this year – at a societal and an economic level.
For our clients, this has been a period of profound uncertainty
about the present and future. Our past investments in omni-channel
capabilities have served us well, in the sense that we were able to
serve our clients well and be there for them in their time of need.
We were rewarded with meaningful growth in client assets during
this period. For this we are very grateful to our clients. As such,
our strong operational performance during a challenging first half,
is a testimony to the investments we have made in the past in
technology and in our people.
“We are absolutely delighted with the acquisition of Hof
Hoorneman Bankiers – a respected Dutch wealth management house.
This transaction is in line with our stated goal of pursuing growth
via acquisitions. Furthermore, this is an important step in our
pursuit of an integrated and focused wealth management strategy.
Notwithstanding the economic challenges and market volatility
confronting us as a result of Covid-19, we believe that we are well
positioned from a capital and asset quality perspective to weather
the storm. In no small part this is due to our focused wealth
management strategy in a stable and wealthy corner of Europe. We
believe that our unique integrated wealth management proposition
will continue to allow us to serve our private, institutional and
mass affluent clients well in the present and in the future.”
In the last six months client assets increased, from €102.0
billion to €103.4 billion driven by net inflow of €4.7 billion in
assets under management (AuM) and savings. AuM increased from €87.7
billion to €89.2 billion. The strong net inflows of €4.4 billion
derived from AuM from both new and existing clients, and materially
offset the negative market impact of €2.9 million. Savings and
deposits were at €9.8 billion (2019: €9.5 billion).
The acquisition of Hof Hoorneman Bankiers as announced last week
will increase our client assets by €1.9 billion. Hof Hoorneman
Bankiers is an excellent fit in terms of client mix, investment
policy, corporate culture and personal approach, for both Private
Banking and Evi. The acquisition is subject to the approval of the
regulators and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
The first half saw a net result of €9.5 million (H1 2019: €31.4
million excluding one-time gains from two salesi). Following the
outbreak of Covid-19 in the first quarter of 2020, we have
implemented cost-saving measures to improve our operating
performance. The solid operational performance combined with cost
savings generated second-quarter net profits of €19.9 million (Q1
2020: -€10.5 million).
