Regulatory costs weigh on SJP as assets rise 27%

The result was also impacted by a £5.5 million Financial Services Compensation Scheme levy, although this was down on the £6.2 million SJP paid out in 2012.
SJP said although the Retail Distirbution Review (RDR) had a ‘neutral’ impact on the group, the changes in the nature of cashflows meant there was limited reallocations of income and expense across which also contributed to the loss.
The company also reported a one-off cost of £6.2 million due to former shareholder Lloyds Banking Group’s selling off its 57% stake in SJP in three rounds over 2013.
At 8:30 SJP's share price was up 3.7% on the day, trading at 823.5p.
