MANILA, Philippines — PNB Savings Bank posted a net income of P459 million in 2017, reflecting a hefty increase of 51 percent against its P305 million registered in 2016.

The bank’s core business sustained profitability with net interest income rising by 43 percent year-on-year to settle at P2 billion. This was driven by the 42 percent growth in total loan portfolio at P43.6 billion due to its strong consumer lending business. Consumer loans accounted for 83 percent of its total loans as PNB Savings Bank performed well its role as the consumer lending arm of its parent bank, Philippine National Bank.

By the end of 2017, total resources expanded to P51.6 billion, up by 39 percent from the P37 billion registered a year ago, funded mainly by growth in deposits.  Total deposits reached P37.3 billion, up by 54 percent from previous year’s deposit level.

PNB Savings Bank continues to uphold its commitment to come up with innovative products and smart banking solutions to meet the diverse banking needs of its clients and the community it serves.  The bank recently launched two products that provided added value to its customers namely, Smart Courier and Smart Multi-Purpose Loans Double Insurance Coverage.

The Smart Courier offers customers the convenience of doing their bank transactions from the comfort of their own home or office.

The double insurance coverage provides free life and accidental death insurance coverage for the borrower that is twice the principal amount of the loan, up to a maximum of P1 million.
