Comments for 5m 2021:

Net interest income increased 11.4% year-on-year to 636.3 billion rubles, driven by growth in loans and the securities portfolio. Slower sequential growth compared to 4m2021 is due to retrospective accounting in May 2020 for a positive impact of the decrease in deposit insurance allocations from early 2020.

Net fee and commission income totaled 222.4 billion rubles, up 20.3% from the same period last year. This growth for the second consecutive month is mainly due to the weak base effect of the respective period in 2020 due to containment constraints (net commissions increased 38.3% year-on-year in May 2021). The main growth drivers were bank card transactions and acquisition, as well as revenue from customer settlement transactions.

Operating Expenses grew 9.5% year-on-year and amounted to 254.7 billion rubles. The momentum is due to the low level of operating expenses in spring 2020 due to sluggish activity in the middle of non-working days as well as a more fluid calendarization of OpEx in 2021. Cost / income ratio arrived at 27.4%.

Total allocation to provisions including revaluation totaled 72.3 billion rubles for 5 million 2021, which was 4 times less than the charge a year ago when the Bank had made large provisions due to the worsening macroeconomic environment and related constraints to the pandemic.
