We are cautiously optimistic on the outlook for 2022 and beyond, given the progress made by the country over the last few months.

GROUP FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

Revenue

Total Revenue, comprising of Net Interest Income and Other Income, was $475 million for the period ended 31 January 2022, an increase of $34 million or 8% over the prior period in 2021. Net Interest Income for the period was $306 million, $12 million or 4% lower when compared to 2021, driven mainly by interest rate compression as a result of the continued low interest rate environment, offset partially by an increase in our loan portfolio.

Other Income for the same period was $169 million, $45 million or 37% more than the prior year as a result of recovery in core banking revenues.

Credit quality

Net impairment losses on financial assets for the period ending 31 January 2022 was $17 million, a decrease of $6 million compared to the prior year. During the quarter, we have seen improvement in delinquency trends as the economy has gradually reopened, leading to a reduction in expected retail credit losses in 2022. Our credit quality continues to show improvement as demonstrated by the ratio of non-performing loans as a percentage of gross loans, improving from 2.35% in 2021 to 1.90% in 2022.

Investment securities and Treasury Bills stood at $7.2 billion as at 31 January 2022, an increase of $1.3 billion compared to the prior year. We continue to maintain a stringent liquidity policy, deploying surplus liquidity into interest earning securities to supplement lower loan interest income driven by interest rate compression.

As at 31 January 2022, Total Liabilities increased by $193 million to $23.4 billion or 1% compared to the prior year. This increase was due to an increase in Deposits from Customers of $61 million or 0.3% to $20.7 billion, and an increase in Policyholder Funds of $117 million or 7%.

POLICYHOLDERS' FUND (TT$BN)

Our Insurance Segment continues to demonstrate consistent growth and customers' increasing confidence in our product offerings.

The Bank's capital adequacy ratio stood at 17.9% as at 31 January 2022, which continues to be significantly above the minimum capital adequacy ratio of 10% as specified by local regulators.

SCOTIABANK IN THE COMMUNITY

In 2021, our community initiatives have benefitted more than 33,000 individuals and more than 24,000 youths through working with 99 charities, schools and community groups.

We wrapped up the year with donations of tablets and laptops to Secondary School students through collaborations with the Cotton Tree Foundation in Trinidad and the Yahweh Foundation in Tobago.

When the COVID-19 pandemic prompted the shift to online learning, students' education was significantly impacted - in particular, those who have been unable to acquire online devices due to already stretched

Ashley De La Rosa - Programme Supervisor, MOMS for Literacy, helps young students to develop their reading skills, using the MOMS Online Literacy Programme.

We also recognised that even with remote learning opportunities, for those with specialised learning needs, there may be challenges in finding appropriate resources and even affording those services.

We recently collaborated with a few NGOs to help close this gap. Literacy programmes being conducted by MOMS for Literacy and Adult Literacy Tutors Association (ALTA) are helping boys and girls with reading, comprehension and writing skills. Through a collaboration with the Joy of Living Resource Centre (JOL) in Tobago, differently abled learners were provided with devices with assistive technology to help

them develop language skills and assist those with speech disabilities to communicate.

The year 2022 started off with great news as we were recognised by the Sustainability, Environmental Achievement and Leadership (SEAL) Awards for our innovation, and commitment to sustainable business practices. We received this award for our Paperless Project. We saw an opportunity to improve our environmental impact by

embracing sustainable practices through the curtailment of paper usage throughout our organisation. This led to a reduction in print volumes by 3.6 million pages through creating a culture of awareness, responsibility and impact with our employees who have embraced the migration of paper-based processes to digital solutions that elevate our customers' overall experience.

We remain committed to continuing to explore programmes that move the needle, not just on environmental progress, but also other areas of ESG in order to maximise our positive impact, helping to build a better future for all stakeholders.
