  2. Net gain on foreign exchange operations;
  3. Net (loss)/gain from financial assets and liabilities at fair value through profit or loss and net realised gain from financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income (FVOCI);
  4. Total credit loss expense, including credit loss expense on loans to customers, amounts due from credit institutions, financial assets at FVTOCI, cash and cash equivalents and other assets;
  5. Including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 0.5 bn;
  6. Including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 3.6 bn;
  7. Including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 0.05 bn;
  8. Including loss from impairment of non-financial assets of KZT 1.7 bn;

 

 

Net profit attributable to common shareholders increased by 71.7% to KZT 128.6bn for 2Q 2021 compared to KZT 74.9bn for 2Q 2020 as a result of the overall business growth across all segments and recovery of  credit loss expense, which reflect the rapid economy rebound and Bank's leading position on the financial markets.

 

Interest income for 2Q 2021 increased by 18.6% to KZT 214bn compared to KZT 180.5bn for 2Q 2020 mainly due to increase in average balances of loans to customers. Interest expense for 2Q 2021 increased by 9.8% to KZT 83.7bn compared to KZT 76.2bn for 2Q 2020 mainly due to the increase of average balance and share of KZT deposits in the amounts due to customers. Net interest margin increased to 5.4% p.a. for 2Q 2021 compared to 5.0% p.a. for 2Q 2020 mainly due to improved structure of placement of interest-bearing liabilities into interest-earning assets and due to savings on coupon payments as a result of an early redemption of Bank's high-yielding Eurobonds.

 

Cost of risk on loans to customers decreased to -0.8% compared to 1% in 2Q 2020 due to repayments of large ticket problem and previously impaired corporate loans.

 

Fee and commission income increased by 24.9% in comparison to 2Q 2020 mainly due to growing volumes of transactional banking, mainly in plastic card operations, as well as bank transfers - settlements, and non-cash operations.

 

Fee and commission expense increased by 17.4% compared to 2Q 2020 due to the increase in payment cards expenses as a result of growing volumes of transactional banking and non-cash transactions, partially offset by the decrease in deposit insurance fees payable to the Kazakhstan Deposit Insurance Fund due to lower rates for the Bank on the back of increase of capital adequacy ratios.

 

Other non-interest income (9) increased by 7.2 times to KZT 21.6bn for 2Q 2021 vs. KZT 3bn for 2Q 2020 due to loss from derivative operations and securities in 2Q 2020 affected by the SWAP agreement with NBRK for the amount of USD 912 mln, which was fully repaid in July 2020.

 

Net insurance income (10) for 2Q 2021 significantly increased vs. 2Q 2020 as a result of growth of unsecured lending program with a borrower's life insurance bundle.

 

Operating expenses (including loss from impairment of non-financial assets) for 2Q 2021 increased by 16.8% vs. 2Q 2020 mainly due to the indexation of salaries and other employee benefits starting from 1 March, 2021 and increase in charity expenses as a result of one-time contribution to charity fund Halyk.

 

The Bank's cost-to-income ratio decreased to 22.6% compared to 28.2% for 2Q 2020 due to higher operating income in 2Q 2021.

Other non-interest income (net foreign exchange gain/(loss), net gain/(loss) from financial assets and liabilities at fair value through profit or loss, net realised gain from financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income, share in profit of associate, income on non-banking activities and other income);
  2. Insurance underwriting income (gross insurance premiums written, net change in unearned insurance premiums, ceded reinsurance share) less insurance claims incurred, net of reinsurance (insurance payments, insurance reserves expenses, commissions to agents);

As at the end of 2Q 2021, total assets increased by 5.9% vs. YE 2020 due to growth in amounts due to customers, which was partially offset by the decrease in debt securities issued.

 

Compared with the end of YE 2020, loans to customers increased by 12.9% on a gross basis and 14.1% on a net basis. Increase of gross loan portfolio in 1H 2021 was attributable to increase in corporate loans by 11.5% on a gross basis, SME and retail loans increased by 10.2% and 17.3% on a gross basis, respectively.

 

As at the end of 2Q 2021, Stage 3 ratio (11) decreased to 10.4% from 12.2% as at the end of 1Q 2021 mainly due to repayments of large ticket problem and previously impaired corporate loans.

As at the end of 2Q 2021, the share of corporate KZT deposits in total corporate deposits was 57.3% compared to 56.6% as at the end of 1Q 2021, whereas the share of retail KZT deposits in total retail deposits was 49.2% compared to 47.5% as at the end of 1Q 2021.

 

 

  1. Including POCI (Purchased or originated credit-impaired assets)
