Trading Update for the Three Months ended 30 September 2020 and Notice of Results

Charles Stanley, the wealth management services group, is pleased to provide a trading update for the second quarter of its financial year, covering the three months ended 30 September 2020.

Trading Update

Total Funds under Management and Administration ("FuMA") in the quarter increased by 0.9% to GBP22.8 billion against the prior quarter. This compared to a 0.4% decrease over the same period in the MSCI WMA Private Investor Balanced Index. Compared to the financial year-end position at 31 March 2020, FuMA were up 12.9%. However, this material movement mainly reflected the market disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and average FuMA over the first half of GBP22.1 billion was 9.4% lower than average FuMA of GBP24.4 billion over the first half of last year.

Group revenue for the quarter decreased by 6.8% to GBP39.9 million (Q2 2020: GBP42.8 million), resulting in a 4.1% reduction over the first half to GBP82.0 million (H1 2020: GBP85.4 million). The relative outperformance of revenues over the six months by comparison to average FuMA is the result of an improved revenue margin, which increased by 4.4bps to 74.3bps (H1 2020: 69.9 bps) as discretionary funds increased to 59.7% of total FuMA (H1 2020:56.5%), fees and commissions were stable, aided by the growth of the Financial Planning division, and interest income declined.

Notice of Results

The Group's unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2020 will be published on 19 November 2020.

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

"The Group has traded and operated resiliently during the first half. Our focus remains on supporting clients and staff during these difficult times, and we are confident of further progress during the second half."
