Investment summary

In its H117 results, STB reported continued strong growth of over 30% in its loan book compared with the same period last year (to £1.5bn). The adoption of a more risk-averse lending positioning, including the withdrawal from higher-risk unsecured lending and sub-prime motor finance, has trimmed interest yields from 11.7% for H116 to 10.1%. This and an increase in impairments, partly reflecting performance of sub-prime motor loans, resulted in a 10% reduction in underlying pre-tax profit (to £14.5m) compared with the prior year period. However, the loan book is now positioned to be more resilient in the face of a potential worsening of credit conditions and the capital position remains strong (CET1 15.3%) to exploit organic and inorganic opportunities.

Industry outlook

While lower asset yields from new, less risky, business and maintained impairments from the back book pinch near-term returns, the potential growth of over 30% in FY18 and FY19 earnings is an indicator of gains to come on the back of a higher-quality, more diverse and resilient loan book. Shareholders are likely to be reassured by the discipline the group is showing in deploying its significant excess capital.
