Third Quarter Trading Update for the three months ended 31 December 2020

 

 

Charles Stanley, the wealth management services group, is pleased to provide a trading update for the third quarter of its financial year, covering the three months ended 31 December 2020.

 

Trading Update

Total Funds under Management and Administration ("FuMA") as at 31 December 2020 have risen by 10.1% to £25.1 billion over the quarter (30 September 2020: £22.8 billion). The increase largely reflects the market improvement of £2.2 billion, with net inflows of £0.1 billion. It compares to a 7.0% increase in the MSCI WMA Private Investor Balanced Index over the same period. Average FuMA over the first three quarters to December 2020 was £22.6 billion, 7.8% lower than over the same period to December 2019 at £24.5 billion.

 

Total revenues over the three months remained stable, decreasing marginally by 1.2% to £42.2 million (Q3 2020: £42.7 million), with increases in fee income of 3.2% and commission income of 4.3% offsetting a significant contraction in interest turn. Total revenues for the financial year-to-date 31 December 2020 declined to £124.1 million (YTD 31 December 2019: £128.1 million). This decrease is accounted for by the 65% drop in interest turn following the fall in interest rates in March 2020 while both fee and commission income remained strong. Revenue margins improved by 3.6bps to 73.2 bps (YTD 31 December 2019: 69.6 bps).

 

Paul Abberley, Chief Executive Officer of Charles Stanley, said:

"The Group has continued to demonstrate significant resilience in the face of the ongoing pandemic, and we are encouraged to see modest net inflows of FuMA during the third quarter as well as stable revenue levels. Whilst uncertainty remains over the length of current market disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are confident that we will continue to make progress in the final quarter of our financial year."
