ATB Financial marks end of fiscal year with steady results

By ATB Financial 23 May 2024 4 min read

Edmonton — Throughout fiscal year 2024, ATB Financial achieved significant milestones and delivered solid financial results.


Reflecting Back

Despite the economic volatility of the past year, ATB Financial reported record total revenue of $2.0 billion (up 4.6 per cent from last year). Strong growth in its overall loan portfolio, now exceeding $51.0 billion, was the primary driver in the uptick in total revenue. Moreover, ATB Wealth recorded record-high assets under administration totalling $28.6 billion.

“Throughout the year, our team members have worked hard to show up in meaningful ways for our clients. With deep expertise and strong market offerings we empower our clients to reach their goals, providing them with a distinct advantage. Our own financial performance has further instilled a confidence that ATB Financial will continue to be a catalyst for growth in the years ahead,” said Curtis Stange, President & CEO, ATB Financial. “Proudly this year, we announced we are in a position, for the first time in our history, to declare ATB dividends. This will help build a stronger Alberta now and for the future.“

Net income was $336.8 million (down 21.4 per cent from last year). The decline in net income is primarily due to the increase of $106.8 million in the provision for loan losses, aligning it more closely with historical norms. Specifically, the loan loss provision increased to $131.5 million compared to the previous fiscal year of $24.6 million mainly due to our loan portfolio growing and lower provisions in the prior year.

"Alberta's economy has experienced record population growth, a revitalised energy sector, and has proven its resilience in the face of inflationary pressures. While these are promising signs, economic challenges persist. Nevertheless, ATB Financial has emerged from this fiscal year with strong capital levels and with total assets exceeding $60 billion.” said Dan Hugo, CFO, ATB Financial.

ATB Financial has once again been recognized as a top workplace in Canada by its team members and continues to support Albertans through sponsorships and community initiatives. ATB Financial further underscored its dedication to Alberta and its commitment to reinvesting in the province with a significant milestone: the announcement that it is in the position to declare its first-ever quarterly dividends totalling $100 million in fiscal 2025 to its shareholder, Government of Alberta.
