Investment summary

STB’s Q3 trading update confirmed that the business is trading in line with expectations. The group is maintaining its move away from higher-risk consumer unsecured and subprime motor products and is also continuing to reduce its exposure to large prime central London housebuilding. The bank has launched a new partnership arrangement for V12 Retail Finance whereby borrowing applications that do not meet STB’s criteria are referred to another lender, prospectively generating incremental fee income and strengthening the retailer relationship. STB also reports that its new deposit platform is now in place, enhancing efficiency, flexibility of product offering and risk controls.

Industry outlook

While lower asset yields from new, less risky, business and maintained impairments from the back book are pinching near-term returns, the potential growth of over 30% in FY18 and FY19 earnings is an indicator of gains to come from a higher-quality loan book. Shareholders are likely to be reassured by the discipline the group is showing in deploying its significant excess capital. Following the private equity purchase of Shawbrook, further sector M&A is possible with a potential offer for Aldermore from FirstRand. STB’s share price rose on the announcement but it remains modestly rated on a price to book of c 1.4x.
