CFO Pham Ngoc Khang said that Home Credit reported strong liquidity with matching asset liability duration, strong capability to mobilise funding, supporting asset generation.
“Home Credit expanded fund-raising amid a challenging market in Q4/2022. Its funding channels include offshore loans, value paper issuance, and onshore loans. Entrustment lending is to extend its growth capacity,” Khang said of the funding results last year.
Liquidity and asset liability management also developed robustly. There was a high liquid asset/total asset of 24 per cent as of December 22, 2022, available base to support peak sales season, while the capital adequacy ratio was better than the regulatory requirements, with a solid capital buffer to face any volatile situations.
“Sustainable overall results in 2022 were driven by strong asset generation, resilient net interest margin and ongoing access to liquidity, continuous operational efficiency, and stable risk performance underwriting,” Khang said.
“Home Credit Vietnam expects to grow assets base driven by a sustainable asset generation on its core business, omnichannel distribution strategy to maximise cost efficiency. Robust profitability is supported by solid asset generation, inherent operating efficiencies, diversified funding and strong equity.”
