1H22 Year-on-Year Performance

  • Group net profit of S$2.84 billion increased 7% from a year ago, largely driven by higher net interest income and lower allowances.
  • Net interest income of S$3.20 billion was 10% above the previous year, mainly attributable to a 6% increase in average asset balances and a 6 basis points rise in net interest margin ("NIM") to 1.63%.
  • Non-interestincome of S$2.32 billion was 10% lower against last year, largely due to a drop in fee, investment and trading income.

Co.Reg.no.: 193200032W

  • Operating expenses of S$2.46 billion were 7% above last year, largely due to higher staff costs associated with salary increments and headcount growth to support business expansion, increased technology-related costs and business promotion expenses.
  • Total allowances were lower at S$116 million as compared to S$393 million in the previous year, mainly due to a decline in allowances for impaired loans.
  • The Group's share of results of associates was S$499 million, an increase of 18% from the previous year.
  • The Group's annualised ROE was 11.0% for 1H22, higher than the 10.8% in 1H21, while annualised earnings per share increased to S$1.26 from S$1.19 a year ago.

2Q22 Year-on-Year Performance

  • Group net profit rose 28% to S$1.48 billion, underpinned by robust performance across the Group's banking, wealth management and insurance businesses.
  • Net interest income grew 16% to a new high of S$1.70 billion. This was largely driven by asset growth and margin expansion. NIM rose 13 basis points to 1.71%, as asset yields outpaced higher funding costs amid a rapidly rising interest rate environment.
  • Non-interestincome was S$1.18 billion, up 6% from a year ago mainly from higher trading income and life insurance profit.
    • Net fee income declined 15% to S$477 million, largely due to lower wealth management, brokerage and investment banking fees, in line with weaker investment sentiments globally. Loan and trade-related fees increased on the back of higher lending and trade volumes. Credit card

fees were also higher during the quarter, in line with the broader reopening of economies and resumption of activities.

    • The Group's wealth management income, comprising income from insurance, private banking, premier private client, premier banking, asset management and stockbroking, grew 8% to S$1.03 billion and made up 36% of the Group's income in 2Q22. As at 30 June 2022, Group wealth management AUM was S$250 billion, down from S$254 billion a year ago as net new money inflows were more than offset by a drop in market valuations.
    • Net trading income of S$267 million was up 26%, from higher customer and non-customer flow treasury income. Net realised losses from the sale of investment securities and others were S$51 million, as compared to a net gain of S$35 million in the previous year, mainly due to sale of fixed income securities.
    • Profit from life insurance from subsidiary Great Eastern Holdings ("GEH") was S$372 million, higher as compared to S$205 million a year ago. This was attributable to an increase in operating profit and mark-to-market gains in its insurance funds from rising interest rates. Total weighted new sales grew 3% to S$551 million, while new business embedded value ("NBEV") increased 5% to S$202 million, with the NBEV margin at 36.7%.
  • Operating expenses increased 10% to S$1.25 billion. Staff costs were up 10% against the previous year mainly from annual salary increments and a rise in headcount as the Group grew its talent pool to support growth. Investments in technology capabilities also increased while business promotion expenses rose with higher business volumes. The cost-to-income ratio improved to 43.5%, from 44.3% a year ago, on positive operating jaws.
  • The Group's share of results of associates was S$245 million, 15% higher than the previous year.
  • Allowances for the quarter were 69% lower than a year ago, from a decline in both impaired and non- impaired assets.

2Q22 Quarter-on-Quarter Performance

  • Group net profit of S$1.48 billion increased 9% from S$1.36 billion a quarter ago.
  • Net interest income increased 13% to S$1.70 billion, mainly from a 16 basis points expansion in NIM.
  • Non-interestincome grew 3% to S$1.18 billion, as higher trading income and profit from life insurance offset a decline in fee and investment income.
  • Operating expenses rose 4% while cost-to-income ratio decreased by 2.1 percentage points as the rise in income outpaced the increase in expenses.
  • The Group's share of results of associates was 4% lower than the previous quarter.
  • Allowances for 2Q22 were up from the previous quarter, as allowances for non-impaired assets of S$66 million were higher compared to S$13 million in the previous quarter.

1/ Credit costs refer to allowances for loans as a percentage of average loans, on annualised basis.

  • Total NPAs were S$3.97 billion as at 30 June 2022, down 3% from a year ago and 8% from the previous quarter.
    • NPAs declined against the previous quarter as higher recoveries and upgrades more than offset new NPA formation.
    • New NPA formation for the quarter was S$182 million, below the S$662 million a year ago and S$296 million in the previous quarter.
    • In 2Q22, net recoveries and upgrades were S$419 million, from the corporate and consumer segments. This was higher than the S$252 million in the previous year and the S$240 million last quarter.
    • NPL ratio of 1.3% was lower from a year ago and the previous quarter, and the allowance coverage against total NPAs was 99% as at 30 June 2022.
  • Total allowances for loans and other assets in 2Q22 were S$72 million as compared to the S$232 million set aside a year ago and the S$44 million in 1Q22.
    • The allowances set aside in 2Q22 mainly comprised a net charge of S$66 million for non-impaired assets, which largely reflected updates of the macro-economic variables in the Expected Credit Loss model, and this was partially offset by credit upgrades.

  • As at 30 June 2022, customer loans grew 8% from a year ago. By geography, Singapore, Indonesia, Greater China, USA and UK drove loan growth. By industry, the increase was led by loans to the building and construction and general commerce sectors, as well as consumer lending including mortgages.
  • The Group committed S$36.9 billion in sustainable financing to customers as at 30 June 2022, up 41% from a year ago and 5% from the previous quarter.
  • Customer deposits rose year-on-year and from the previous quarter to S$349 billion. Current account and savings deposits ("CASA") ratio of 60.9% was lower quarter-on-quarter due to shift of CASA balances to higher-yielding fixed deposits in a rising interest rate environment. The Group's funding base continued to be stable with customer deposits comprising around 80% of total funding.
  • Loans-to-depositsratio was 84.4%, as compared to the 85.6% in the preceding year and 83.3% last quarter.
