Q3 results look good to me, continuing good growth. I don't understand the price drop - a growth stock yielding over 4% - what am I missing here? Cheers, PJ

Interesting article on how effective STJ are at extracting a margin from Fund managers, and a comment on their target market: Https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fund-managers-given-thin-slice-of-client-fees-pie-by-st-james-s-place-2sw8bdbkf St James’s Place, the wealth manager, is taking up to 39 times more in client fees than it passes on to the star fund managers on which its business model is based, according to a study. Across its 36 proprietary funds, SJP collected £926 million in fees from clients over a year, but only £247 million was then passed on to the third-party asset managers that do the actual stockpicking. The FTSE 100 company handles £97 billion on behalf of almost two-thirds of a million well-heeled clients. While its pitch to customers is that it gives them unprecedented and easy access to a broad range of stockpicking stars, a relatively small portion of the fees are passed on to those stars, according to research by Citywire, the financial information group that specialises in tracking the performance of fund managers. the total fees charged to clients of its UK High Income unit trust, which is run by Neil Woodford’s Woodford Investment Management, £5.5 million was passed to Woodford, while SJP took £25.4 million. SJP took £113 million in fees from clients of its largest fund, the £9 billion Global Equity fund, while the outside manager, Blackrock, received only £18.2 million. In the most extreme case, its £1.2 billion hedge fund offering, Alternative Assets fund, SJP’s fee was £15.5 million, 39 times more than the £402,000 paid to the manager at the time, Blackrock. Blackrock has since been replaced by Wellington Management. In a report published today, Citywire said that it was “startling” how SJP was able to charge so much more than the money passed on to fund managers, and questioned whether all of SJP’s clients were getting value for money. The report also found that most of the SJP funds had delivered fairly pedestrian returns over the past three years. Two of the 36 were in the top quartile and 13 were in the bottom quartile when compared with industry-wide data provided by Lipper. Even adjusting for technical differences that flatter rivals, SJP fund performances were only fractionally better than the median average, with nine funds still in the bottom quartile and only four of 36 funds outperforming Citywire’s own benchmarks. A spokesman for SJP said that the fees it charged covered not only fund management but a string of other services including administration, platform costs, client advice and investment monitoring. It was not all taken as profits, he stressed. The average client invested for 14 years and SJP’s solutions were designed to create wealth over the long term, the spokesman said. On average, 87 per cent of SJP portfolios consistently outperformed its preferred benchmark, the ARC Private Client Indices, over rolling five-year periods. SJP, which operates through a network of 3,800 self-employed advisers, is seen by some as taking high fees, often charging an upfront 5 per cent of investors’ porfolios. Those not paying high initial fees can be hit with large exit penalties if they decide to take their nest eggs elsewhere. However, many clients are unsophisticated investors and are happy to pay for an increased level of handholding and a personalised approach. They are mostly very loyal, with 96 per cent of client funds retained each year. SJP’s “bundled approach” to fees made it hard for clients to see what they were paying for, Citywire said. “It is hard to see where the cost of investment ends and the cost of advice begins.” Clients with complex needs did best because advice on areas such as tax and inheritance planning came free as part of the service, Citywire added. Clients with simple needs could probably do better elsewhere. Savers hand over £29m a day There are ten million people in Britain with investible assets of £50,000 or more. So far St James’s Place and its 3,800 self-employed advisers have signed up 650,000 of them to the SJP formula (Patrick Hosking writes). In the first half of this year, they handed over cash to SJP at the rate of £29 million per day as they sought someone they could trust to advise them on pensions and ISAs and help them channel the money to fund managers with the pedigree to help grow it. Rising levels of wealth, new pension freedoms and the ever-growing complexity of the financial services industry has produced booming demand for hands-on advice. SJP specialises not in the super-rich, but the professional classes with £50,000-£;500,000 in long-term savings. It operates a string of exclusive funds managed by big-name fund managers like Neil Woodford, or overseas-based investment stars whose funds are not easily accessed otherwise by UK investors.

Seem to remember a similar hefty drop when Bellamy left. Lamb was his right hand man. Picked up a few more also as expecting these to revert once news digested. Divi and FUM up, this should just keep rolling.

And what of it? Time and again this stock deals with negative press (some might say by those that doth protest too much, too often) and cracks on. Let's see what Thursday half year results brings. I suspect they may be OK.

Awful write-up in Sunday Times on 23/7/17 by top journalist Ali Hussain on the high charges and the fact that some SJP advisers do not give accurate advice. Hmmm!

Read Panmure Gordon & Co's note on ST JAMES'S PLACE, out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/GB0007669376 "St James’s Place has delivered a good Q1 2016 trading update. The record Q4 performance (gross inflows of £2.52bn) continued into Q1 gross inflows of £2.45bn (Q1 2015: £2.1bn). Net inflows at £1.36bn (Q1 2015: £1.3bn) were equally impressive leading record FUM of £62.0bn (31 Dec 2015: £58.6bn) although this figure included £1.26bn from the Rowan Dartington acquisition for the first time. The EEV NAV at 31 March 2016 was 760p/share (31 Dec 2015: 737p/share) or 740p ex the final dividend payable in May, which compared to our in line with consensus forecast of 745p/share. With the polls suggesting a stay in Brexit vote with the possible positive impact on equity markets, in our view SJP’s shares look ‘good to go’. A current valuation at EV plus 2x new business profit is way too low in our view..."
