Why the Netwealth share price is sliding today

This morning fast-growing funds platform provider Netwealth Group Ltd (ASX: NWL) revealed that it posted net inflows of $900 million in funds under administration (FUA) for the quarter ending March 31 2019.

Its FUA also grew by an additional $1.2 billion over the quarter due to market appreciation as stock markets enjoyed a bumper rebound over the first quarter of the calendar year.

In total it now has $21.1 billion in FUA, with the amount up 31% or $5 billion over the 12 month period to March 31 2019.

Netwealth also confirmed it has won a major contract from Australia & New Zealand Banking Group’s (ASX: ANZ) Private Wealth business that was previously held by platform providing rival Praemium Ltd (ASX: PPS).

For the fiscal year the group has now delivered $2.8 billion in FUA inflows to suggest the March quarter was slightly higher than the median of the prior two quarters.

The group also flagged that the final fiscal quarter is “typically the strongest” and it expects “to exceed FY2018 net inflows of $4.166 billion, subject to the timing of client transitions continuing as expected and out forecast organic growth”.

The share price is probably sliding after a hot run and because the quarterly FUA inflows, although strong, didn’t quite meet the market’s expectations.
