    May 2024 was the most successful month of the year so far for Bigbank. The growth of the loan portfolio was the largest of the year, and the deposit portfolio also continued to grow. The net profit of 4.0 million euros and a return on equity of 19.6% were the strongest indicators so far this year.

    The loan portfolio grew by more than 55 million euros in a month, indicating that the strong results of April were followed by an even more successful May. The largest growth was seen in the home loan portfolio, with significant increases in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Considering the current state of the real estate market, it can be said that Bigbank's home loan offering is becoming increasingly attractive to a wider range of home loan seekers. There was also notable growth in business and consumer loan portfolios.

    In May, the moderate decline in the Euribor that began in April continued. The market's expectation for the European Central Bank to lower interest rates deepened throughout May, which materialised at the beginning of June with a 0.25 percentage point reduction in base rates. This means that a moderate reduction in deposit interest rates is also evident in all Bigbank's deposit markets. From the perspective of Bigbank's deposit products, this meant that an increasing number of deposit clients are once again preferring term deposits over savings deposits in a declining interest rate environment, fixing a suitable interest rate for a longer period. Overall, this resulted in a notable growth in the term deposit portfolio and a slight decrease in the savings deposit portfolio. The deposit portfolio grew by over 26 million euros in May.

    The positive trend in loan portfolio quality that began in April continued in May. In May, the amount of net loss allowances for loans and financial investments and provision expenses was 1.7 million euros, a significant decrease compared to the first quarter level. The proportion of non-performing loans in the total loan portfolio remains low.

    May's net profit of 4.0 million euros is a strong result. Compared to the cumulative results of the first five months of last year, Bigbank's net profit has decreased by 2.2 million euros. The main factor is the growth of net loss allowances for loans and financial investments over the five months, but the increase in salary and income tax expenses also has a significant impact. The latter effect is mainly due to the income tax obligation imposed on credit institutions in Latvia, which has affected financial results since December 2023.
