Banco Santander Mexico Reports First Quarter 2022 Net Income of Ps.5,111 Million

  • Total loan portfolio growth continued to outpace YoY market performance, highlighting solid performance in consumer and credit card loans. While loan volumes in the commercial portfolio were driven by a double-digit pick-up in middle-market loans, meanwhile SMEs, Corporate and Government loans remained soft.

  • Total deposits continued growing at a solid pace while the Bank carefully manages funding costs by improving funding mix by favoring demand deposits over term deposits. Meanwhile, contribution of individuals in total deposits represented 37.7%, compared with 24.2% in 2016, this is the best mix the Bank has ever had versus previous years’ first quarters.

  • Net income increased 55.9% YoY in 1Q22, mainly due to the solid increase in NII, lower provisions for loan losses and expenses, partially offset by softer fees and lower market related income.

Héctor Grisi, Banco Santander México’s Executive President and CEO, commented: “We began the year maintaining very strong dynamics in our core businesses along with a healthy balance sheet and liquidity positions. Volumes were again boosted by individual loans, which continue outpacing the market, driven by sustained market share gains in mortgages and auto loans. In the consumer segment, we experienced a strong recovery, especially in credit cards.The renewed growth was mainly due to the solid performance of our unique LikeU credit card, which is experiencing excellent market acceptance.Additionally, in auto loans, we are very close to become the number three player in the market, thanks to our attractive commercial offering and the various alliances we have with leading automakers. Bear in mind that we started from scratch our auto loans business not that long ago. In the commercial segment, we are beginning to see a positive trend in loan volumes, with middle-market and government loans growing 10% and 4% sequentially.

We continue growing deposits at a solid pace while carefully managing funding costs by improving our mix in favor of demand over term deposits. In line with our strategy, the contribution of individuals has increased considerably in both categories of deposits. Currently, the contribution of individuals represents close to 38% of our total deposits, compared with 24% in 2016, which is the best mix we have had in the Bank’s history compared to previous years’ first quarters. At the same time, our individual and corporate demand deposits continue expanding at high single-digit rates, underscoring the success of our loyalty and customer acquisition strategies as well as our continued focus on reducing high deposit costs.

Regarding asset quality, our NPL ratio reflects the implementation of IFRS-9 regulation in Mexico. Despite our higher risk appetite in certain business lines, our portfolio remains healthy, thanks to prudent risk management. Further, provisions should remain stable, as we are not seeing any deterioration that could impact any of our loan portfolio segments. As Mexico’s improving operating environment gains more traction, we are pointing to further improvements in asset quality and, therefore to levels of provisions and cost of risk more similar to pre-pandemic levels.

Looking ahead, we will continue executing our many growth initiatives and making new investments in the bank’s transformation. We will maintain our strategy focused on strengthening customer loyalty by increasing the digitalization of our products and operations, mainly through innovation and market-leading technology advancements that enable us to significantly enhance the value of our products and digital offerings. Our ambition to become the bank known for superior customer experience in Mexico remains. “
