Loans to corporate clients before provisions
Loans to retail clients before provisions
The retail loan portfolio reached RUB11.6 trn, up by 9% in 10M22, driven by strong dynamics within the mortgage portfolio (+14.9%, including the securitization portfolio) and credit cards (+23.5%). The mortgage approval rate returned to the pre-crisis level.
Total mortgage production for 10M 2022 reached RUB1.9 trn. The mortgage demand remained stable on the back of declining loan rates on new originations, as well as thanks to different campaigns with developers and state subsidized programs.
The positive dynamics in consumer lending became noticeable starting from the end of 2Q22 on the back of declining interest rates in the economy. Total consumer unsecured loan production in October was RUB238 bn.
Total corporate loan portfolio added 11.9% 3 in 10M22 to RUB18.0 trn. Corporate loan production returned to the levels of 2H21.
The loan portfolio asset quality remained stable. The share of overdue loans in total loan portfolio was 2.2%, which was lower than the level at the end of last year.
Retail client funding reached RUB16.7 trn, up by 0.2% 3 in 10M22, to a large extent thanks to seasonal promos, including SberPrime Deposit at special rate, Best Interest, Favourable Timing. The share of foreign currency deposits for 10M22 was halved. The clients preferred to save in Roubles or foreign currencies of friendly jurisdictions.
Corporate client funding increased by 3.4% 3 for 10M22 to RUB8.7 trn. There was a shift away from funding in US dollars and Euros. During 10M22 their share in total corporate funding was 16%, down from 36% in the beginning of the year.
The share of assets in US dollars and Euros was reduced by almost half during 10M22. A higher share of Ruble assets reduces risks and is margin accretive.
