QNB net profit grows by 6% to QR10.8bn






QNB Group, the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa (MEA), recorded a net profit of QR10.8bn ($3.0bn) for the nine months ended September 2018, up by 6 percent compared to same period last year, despite the impact of the Turkish Lira devaluation.

The banking giants total assets increased to QR853bn ($234bn), up by 8 percent from September 2017.The key driver of total assets growth was from loans and advances which grew by 4 percent to reach QR604bn ($166bn). This was mainly funded by customer deposits which increased by 7 percent to reach QR615bn ($169bn) from September 2017.

The growth of the Group assets and liabilities has been partly affected by the devaluation in the Turkish Lira. Despite the devaluation impact, QNBs strong asset liability management capabilities helped QNB Group to improve its loans to deposits ratio to 98.3 percent as at 30 September 2018.

The Groups drive for operational efficiency is yielding cost-savings in addition to sustainable revenue generating sources, enabling the Group to improve the efficiency ratio (cost to income ratio) to 26 percent, from 29 percent last year, which is considered one of the best ratios among large financial institutions in the MEA region.

Robust credit quality is underpinned by non-performing loans ratio of 1.8 percent as at 30 September 2018, a level considered one of the lowest among financial institutions in the MEA region. The Groups conservative policy in regard to provisioning resulted in the coverage ratio at106 percent as at 30 September 2018.

Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) as at 30 September 2018 amounted to 15.6 percent, higher than the regulatory minimum requirements of the Qatar Central Bank and Basel Committee. Currency headwinds in our core markets had limited impact on the CAR.

QNBs successful funding from the international markets during the year which includes, among others, capital market issuances of $560m (AU$700m) with a 5 and 10-year maturity in Australia and $720m bonds with 30 year maturity in Taiwan.

This reflects the Groups success in diversifying funding sources by entering new debt markets, sourcing sustainable long-term funding, extending the maturity profile of funding sources and the trust of international investors in the strong financial position of QNB Group and its strategy.

During the year, Fitch Ratings and Moodys have revised the Outlook to Stable due to successful management of the impact from the blockade.Also QNB remains the highest-rated bank in Qatar and one of the highest-rated banks in the world from the major rating agencies of Moodys, Standard & Poors and Fitch Ratings.

QNB Group serves a customer base of more than 23 million customers with more than 29,000 staff resources operating from more than 1,200 locations.
