Wealth management group St James's Place said it was close to finalising the purchase of an Asian financial advisor business as it reported a 42 per cent increase in profits before shareholder tax of 190.7m pounds for 2013. Operating profits on an European Embedded Value (EEV) basis were £462.7m, an increase of 26% in St James's first year as an independent FTSE company after Lloyds Banking Group sold its 57% holding. Shareholders will receive a 50% increase in the full-year dividend to 15.96p reflecting the higher underlying cash result of £139.9m, up 67%. The company also forecast a 30-40% dividend rise in 2014. New single investments of £7.2bn were 22% higher than 2012, with St James's clients investing across life, pension and unit trust / ISA investment tax wrappers. Funds under management increased 27% to £44.3bn. St James's said it expected to seal its purchase of the "well-respected" Asian business, which provides financial advice to British expatriates in Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai, in the first few months of this year. Looking forward, Chief Executive David Bellamy said UK economic policy, along with long-term low interest rates "appears to be finally bearing fruit, with signs that the economy is improving". "The key indicators on growth and employment are looking more positive now than at any time in the last five years," he said. "Over the last 12 months, the slowly improving economic backdrop and the continued low interest rates have been key to the growth in investment markets in the UK, US and Europe, albeit at the expense of savers in traditional bank and building society accounts." "Leading on from these profit results, we continue to see a growing cash result, a trend that is expected to continue with the increasing maturity of funds under management," Bellamy said.

Hi Chatter - I suspect this will do well in 2014 - because if shares have a good year next year due to the recovery, people such as St James will do well as more money come into the market.

David Lamb, the Managing Director of wealth management firm St James's Place sold nearly 1.2m pounds of shares in the company after exercising options as part of the company's performance share plan (PSP). Lamb, who joined the firm back in 1992 and the board in December 2007, exercised 185,285 nil cost options under the 2005 PSP on Friday after meeting certain performance targets. The shares were then sold, 87,084 of which were disposed of in a separate transaction to meet the cost of income tax and national insurance costs payable on the exercise of the awards. The sales were made at a price of 632.23p a share, with both transactions totalling £1.17m. His holding was maintained at 415.003 shares. Earlier in the week, the company impressed the market with its interim results reporting a 21% increase in total new business on an annual premium equivalent basis to £426.5m. Funds under management jumped 29% to £39.9bn, while the company raised its first-half dividend by 50% to 6.38p a share. The stock has jumped by 50% so far this year.

Strong numbers. Upgrades? Alongside these new business numbers, through a combination of the positive performance of our client's investment funds, supported by more stable market conditions, and the continued retention of existing funds under management, we continue to experience substantial growth in the cash returns from those longer term funds. Consequently the Board has increased the interim dividend by 50%
