Q3 2019 Trading Update

Secure Trust Bank PLC and its subsidiaries ("Secure Trust Bank", "STB" or the "Group") provide a trading update in relation to the third quarter ended 30 September 2019.

The Group has traded well during the third quarter with business trends consistent with those highlighted in the interim report. The overall results for the period are in line with management expectations.

Whilst demand for the Group's lending products remained healthy, the Group saw a general slowing in demand in September. This appears consistent with the recent economic data and is considered by the Group to be a function of consumers and businesses becoming more cautious ahead of the 31st October 2019 Brexit date. Given the strong performance over the first three quarters of 2019, the Group remains comfortable with its guidance in respect of the outlook for the full year, although political developments in the coming weeks could impact the UK economy and the Group's results in the final quarter. The Group remains well capitalised and funded.

The introduction of ISAs to the deposit product offering has also introduced further diversity into the deposit base at a lower cost to non ISA deposit products.

On 15 October 2019 the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) announced plans to ban the way in which some car retailers, and other brokers in the motor finance sector, receive commission. The Group has reviewed the consultation paper issued by the FCA in this respect and does not expect any negative impact on the Group's motor finance business arising from the FCA's planned changes.

The Group considers that its lending portfolio is appropriately positioned for current economic conditions and the short duration nature of the asset portfolio means that the Group can react quickly to both market opportunities and threats. The Group remains selective in respect of new lending activities which are biased towards shorter duration lower risk lending in attractive market segments. This continues to drive profit growth and improve the credit quality of new customer loan originations.
