Secure Trust Bank is a well-established specialist bank addressing niche markets within consumer and business lending.
On the back of a strong Q1 performance, management stated that the company is trading in line with expectations and believes it can still achieve its medium-term targets (return on equity of 14–16%, CET1 ratio of >12% and lending book CAGR of 15%+ by FY25). It is confident in its ability to continue expanding the business in its specialist market segments and the company remains well-positioned to grow its lending balances as it continues to strengthen its partnerships while simultaneously reducing the cost-to-income ratio. We maintain our PBT estimates of £44.4m and £52.0m for FY23 and FY24 respectively.
