ATB Financial maintains steady results in third-quarter

By ATB Financial 23 February 2024 3 min read

Edmonton — ATB Financial's third-quarter results underscore solid performance amidst challenging conditions marked by the lingering impacts of elevated inflation and interest rates.

For the period ending December 31, 2023, ATB Financial recorded total revenue of $518 million (up 7.1 per cent from last year). The revenue growth was the result of the continued support for the Alberta economy as loans grew $3.5 billion or 7% year-over-year resulting in a net loan portfolio of $50.8 billion at quarter end.

“With a net loan portfolio in excess of $50 billion, ATB Financial is able to significantly contribute to the Alberta economy,” said Curtis Stange, President and CEO, ATB Financial. “In conversations with our clients, we know they’re challenged by increasing costs, as well as more difficult access to skilled labour, to support their goals. Our personalized financial advice and solutions will help ensure continued growth in this province.”

The Energy sector led overall loan growth, with additional positive contributions from Real Estate, Agriculture, and ATB's mortgage portfolios. These results highlight ATB's diversified revenue streams and strategic positioning across sectors. Furthermore, the company experienced a noteworthy 11.3 per cent increase in other income in the third quarter, totaling $169.7 million compared to the previous year.

"Alberta's economy, fueled by record population growth and a rejuvenated energy sector, has proven its resilience amidst the inflation storm. Moreover, Alberta is expected to be a leading economic force in Canada in 2024,” added Stange. “Despite these positive indicators, we recognise the continuous impacts of elevated interest rates on our clients and we remain committed to helping our clients adapt to these ever-changing conditions.”

Recognizing rising affordability challenges, coupled with an increased demand for essential services during the holiday season, ATB Financial extended its financial support to 22 food banks across the province in Q3. Additionally, combined with donations and volunteerism, ATB’s team members further contributed to hundreds of charities and dedicated thousands of volunteer hours to help raise the well-being of Albertans this winter.
