Net interest income (NII) was flat as balance sheet growth was offset by margin compression. Australia: 073 911 1378 Standard Bank Group’s headline earnings for the six months to 30 June 2020 were R7.5 billion (USD453 million) and at 30 June 2020 total assets were R2.6 trillion (USD151 billion). ICBC Standard Bank (ICBCS) recorded a profit of USD70 million in 1H20 (1H19: loss of USD130 million). The group’s second quarter average Basel III liquidity coverage ratio amounted to 136%, well in excess of the temporarily reduced minimum phased-in regulatory requirement of 80%. Credit impairment charges increased significantly relative to 1H19, driven by the non-repeat of a prior year recovery coupled with deteriorating risk grades and increased provisioning across the IB portfolio. Lockdowns encouraged customers to transition to our digital channels. The deteriorating credit environment drove a 39% increase in risk-weighted assets (RWA) period on period. Applying the group’s accounting policy on IT intangibles, it was deemed necessary to impair the previously capitalised asset. Structural balance sheet changes required, following the South African sovereign downgrade, also impacted performance. The Shareholder Investment Portfolio performance reflected negative investment market returns, particularly in respect of foreign and local equities. PBB Africa Regions (PBB AR) gross loans and advances grew 20% to R89 billion, supported by ongoing focus on client ecosystem origination, digital client onboarding and digital disbursements, as well as a weaker ZAR period on period.
