    • RHB Bank Expects Loan Growth in 2018

      After a meeting with CGSCIMB Research, group CFO of RHB Bank, Tuan Syed Ahmad Taufik Albar said that he has a positive outlook towards 2018 terms of loan growth and overseas earnings.

      According to CGSCIMB Research firm, the bank is currently targeting 6% loan momentum this year as compared to 3.7% last year. The research firm further said that RHB Bank is hoping to see a good turnaround in overseas earnings after suffering heavy losses in the last couple of years.

      Furthermore, according to the estimates of the research firm, the hike in rates in January/February this year will lift RHB's net profit by 6% to 7% due to the change in pricing between the fixed deposit rates and the lending rates. However, the bank thinks that there would not be much impact given the ongoing fixed deposit campaign, which pays high rate of interest.
