(September 16, 2010 --Chicago, IL) -- Revenue growth is the focus of 2010 for both trust operations and commercial banks, according to TRUST PERFORMANCE REPORT, a sister publication of TRN.
Fiduciary assets, which recovered in 2009 with stock market growth, appear to have reached a plateau in the first half of 2010. Weighted, total fiduciary assets on average declined marginally in 2010, less than 1 percent.
Revenues, which lag asset trends, are seeing strong growth. For the TPR 350, nearly 3 in 4 reported positive growth, while only 1 in 3 reported positive asset growth.
Among the Trillion Dollar Club, five of the eight institutions that make up this group reported positive revenue growth, while only two reported asset growth.
The Boston giant, State Street, reported the strongest asset growth, nearly 30 percent in the first six months of 2010—driven almost exclusively by custody assets.
TRUST PERFORMANCE REPORT’s annual data book (published in May) provides both industry and peer group performance data by assets, gross revenue, net income, and account category; subscribers receive quarterly updates. TPR findings are based on its annual survey of the top 1500 fiduciary institutions. Quarterly updates are provided to TPR subscribers.
