Investment summary

FY17 was a further year of change for Secure Trust Bank (STB) as management completed the shift away from unsecured consumer loans and reduced the risk profile in motor finance. This restricted near-term profits but the pace of loan book growth has remained strong and looks set to feed into substantial earnings growth as the cost of risk subsides, more than offsetting the lower returns earned on lower risk lending. The shares have begun to respond to this prospect following the results, but the valuation suggests further upside.

Industry outlook

Looking ahead, STB sees good potential for profitable growth in business, retail, motor and consumer mortgage lending. The new deposit platform completed in 2017 will help support this growth, providing greater flexibility and containing funding costs. New management has been brought in to motor finance tasked with developing in the prime and near-prime segments. Following the period of adjustment in 2017 STB is well placed to generate attractive earnings growth.
