Capita, the authorised corporate director of the failed Arch cru funds, has revealed the settlement earlier this year cost it £17.9m.
In its results statement, the group said the settlement had impacted its operating cashflow in what chief executive Paul Pindar called a "challenging" year.
The revelation comes after the FSA announced a £54m compensation package for investors last year which was funded by Capita Financial Managers Limited, as well as the CF Arch cru funds' depositaries, BNY Mellon Trust & Depositary and HSBC.
However, it was not known at the time how much each group had paid.
The figure today means Capita has funded a third of the package, with the remainder split between BNY Mellon and HSBC.
